Captain John Jackson of Key West Florida is your one-stop shop for all things Florida Keys fishing!
The son of a commercial fisherman, Captain John spent many days and nights exploring the many wonders that the lower keys has to offer. Raised on Sugarloaf Key, located between Key West and Big Pine Key, Captain John enjoyed exploring these world-class waters inside and out fishing, diving, and exploring the many islands, channels, creeks, and waterways which make up what is known as the back-country.
With his younger brother James, Captain John would search for new places to fish and dive and would always bring home fish or lobster for their mother to cook.
As Captain John grew up, he began to broaden his explorations beyond the backcountry to fishing and diving reefs, another entirely different ecosystem full of different wonders and fascinating creatures.
As a young man, Captain John earned many commercial licenses and spent the majority of his time fishing and diving for lobster.
In the late 80's, Captain John created Reel Easy Charters and has shared his knowledge and experience with others ever since.
Captain John is thankful to call the lower keys home, saying, "this diverse Eco-system has and will forever be a magical place to me".
Come join Captain John for an incredible adventure on the water aboard the Reel Easy Charters!
We could not ask for a better fishing experience! Very knowledgeable and hospitable. Chris put us on the fish all day long! Thanks Captain John for such a great charter service! We had an absolute blast! Three of my friends had never been on a charter and there first one today was a success!
My 13 and 12 year old sons and I went on a half day trip with Captain John Jackson. We first stopped at a spot where the mangrove snapper were biting and had a lot of activity. Our last stop was a spot where sharks were active and my 13 year old was able to catch a shark. Overall we had a great experience and John Jackson provided us with an excellent fishing experience. To top it all off we were able to have our catch cooked at the marina’s restaurant.
