Are you looking for a charter that’s just perfect to take your family out for a relaxing day of fishing? Maybe your best fishing buddies want to go on an adrenaline-pumping action-packed trip? Both of these questions can be answered by – II Easy Charters.

Climb aboard their 26’ Barker, a brand-new state of the art fishing machine. You’ll be able to go nearshore, offshore, and backcountry fishing, as well as hit the Florida Keys sanctuaries. She has a great, dry ride, powered by a 350 HP Mercury engine, allowing you to cruise at a maximum speed of 40 knots. Her second stage tower lets the captain spot the catch a great distance away. A live bait tank is there to keep your bait spry and kicking.

Captain John Jackson will be your guide and instructor on this excellent fishing adventure. With him, you will target a variety of fantastic fish like Tarpon, Bonefish, Gag, Goliath, and Broomtail Groupers, Mangrove and Mutton Snappers, Jack Crevalles, Kingfish, and many others you may run into. You’ll get the chance to try fly fishing, as well as bottom fishing and spinning, with light or heavy tackle.

Tarpon can be targeted throughout the year, but the best fishing for the Silver Kings is from March through July.

Captain John will provide you with all the necessary fishing equipment, but fly fishermen will need to bring their own rods. Live bait is included in the price for all trips. There’s no minimum age policy for kids with II Easy Charters, they invite young anglers to come aboard and get hooked on excellent sport fishing!

Born and raised in the Florida Keys, I learned to fish at an early age. Fishing and diving became my second nature. First, I started working as a commercial fisherman and then added being a professional guide to my resume. I'm a third generation captain and professional guide. I've proved my skill in various tournaments.
