Going fast!

With Callion Fishing Charters, some of the fantastic angling opportunities that the waters of Marathon have to offer will be all yours. With decades of fishing experience and local knowledge, Captain John Callion will provide you and your family with a fun-filled adventure.

You will spend your day on a 25’ SeaVee center console, built in 2017. This is a seaworthy boat with a 200 HP Suzuki engine and enough room for up to 4 adult anglers and one kid. It is equipped with a GPS and a fishfinder to save you time while searching for fish. There is also a livewell, which will be loaded with bait to make your hooks irresistible and an icebox to keep the catch fresh during the day.

Callion Fishing Charters has tailored a variety of packages that range from 4 to 8 hours on the water. Each trip can be customized to meet your specific angling needs. Battle the “Silver King” Tarpon anytime from February through April or spend your day fishing for anything from Bonefish and Permit to Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Spanish and Kinch Mackerel, and even various types of Sharks.

All trips include the use of bait, rods, and lures, and as well as quality fly fishing equipment if needed. The captain will also cover the licenses for you and your party and will clean the keeper fish when you’re done catching.
