Hooking Up Fishing Charters

Eager to explore the versatile and exciting fishing world of Jupiter, FL with an experienced captain at the helm? Then look no further than Hooking Up Fishing Charters! Captain Tony Johnson has over 20 years of experience and he’ll use that knowledge to put you on top of some of the biggest trophies of the Western Atlantic that are biting year-round in the area.

He welcomes anglers of all experience levels on his 31’ GF Twinvee. Powered by two 300 HP Suzuki outboard engines, it can cruise comfortably at 35 knots and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 50 knots. Captain Tony took command of his new boat in March 2021, she is a beauty that’s equipped with two Simrad Evo 3 screens to map the ocean floor together with a Simrad Halo radar to find the fish! Capable of carrying up to 6 passengers in full comfort, it comes with a saltwater shower, radio, ice chest, outriggers, and a livewell.

With Gulf Stream only an hour away, you’ll have the unique opportunity to land some of the heavy-weights without spending too much time traveling to the fishing grounds. Captain Tony will tailor the trip according to your fishing goals, and the stars of your hunt might be Snook, Mutton Snapper, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and whatever else your heart desires.

Hooking Up Fishing Charters will take you up to 35 miles from the coast and provide you with the best professional Daiwa, Penn, and Shimano fishing gear. You won’t have to think about the license, water, bait, or lures - everything’s included in the charter. You can also assist the captain in catching the most appealing live bait at reefs.

A first mate will be present on some trips and 20% gratuity is expected in those situations. Children are more than welcome to enjoy the day onboard, however, to go offshore they must be 8 years or older.

And remember, there’s plenty of fish in the sea and it’s always fun to spend a day on the water chasing tails. Capt. Tony and Hooking Up Fishing Charters will ensure you have an amazing day!
