Islamorada FL, United States

Tournament anglers or complete beginners, JFK Charters Islamorada welcomes everyone. Captain Tim Klein enjoys sharing his insider knowledge of local pristine waters. Come with your two best angler buddies or bring your family and have an amazing time going after inshore champion species.

Your captain for the day grew up in the Florida Keys, spending every waking moment fishing and learning the tricks of the trade from legendary guides. Capt. Tim found his calling over thirty years ago, and today, he’s just as happy to pass on the rod to the new generations.

Whether you pick a half-day or a full-day expedition, you can expect to go after the favorites of these plentiful waters — Redfish, Snook, Permit, Tripletail, Bonefish, and Barracuda, just to name a few. In the mood to wrestle with the acrobatic giants? Get ready for a day of Tarpon fishing, battle this gorgeous fish known as the Silver King, and come out a proud winner.

All this angling fun wouldn’t be possible without a reliable boat to take you to the best fishing grounds. Maverick HPX 18’ skiff is just what the doctor ordered when you’re going after even the spookiest of fish in shallow waters. The vessel accommodates up to 3 persons and has plenty of room for them to fish freely.

You don’t have to lug around any fishing equipment, Capt. Tim has Penn and Shimano rods, as well as custom spinning reels, and tackle on board, including fly fishing gear, should you need it. Feel free to bring your little ones on your fishing adventures, the captain is more than happy to have them on board. At the end of each trip, all your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you.

Wherever your fishing trip takes you, breathtaking nature will always be your backdrop. Catch your new personal record, create lasting memories, and enjoy a day of angling escapades on unspoiled waters with JFK Charters Islamorada!
