Hook’d Up Charters Inshore|Offshore Guided tours to include Sunset Hop aboard for a new fishing adventure with Hook’d Up Charters and Captain Jeff Jenkins! Discover the productive inshore and offshore fishing of Eastern Florida with your local guide, who will use his angling expertise to make sure you have an amazing time on the water.

Join Capt. Jeff on his 22’ bay boat that is well-suited for different fishing conditions and can take out up to 4 people. The vessel is equipped with up-to-date navigational electronics to ensure you have the smoothest ride and get to the fishing grounds quickly and safely. There’s a live bait well on board, as well as a trolling motor to help you sneak up to your catch.

You’ll use quality Shimano light tackle for your inshore trips, and Penn and Shimano gear for offshore fishing. If you’d like to do some fly fishing, the captain can provide the equipment, or you can bring your own. A variety of lures and live bait are included in the price, as is your fishing license.

Capt. Jeff runs inshore and offshore trips that are fun for all levels of anglers. On the inshore excursions, you’ll fish the Indian River in search of Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, Snook, and much more. If you pick an offshore trip, you’re looking at the possibility to hook Mahi Mahi, a variety of Snapper and Grouper, and King Mackerel. For the ultimate angling challenge, target feisty Sailfish and acrobatic Tarpon.

Whatever you decide to keep, your guide is happy to clean and fillet after you come back to land. Capt. Jeff’s trips are family-friendly and he loves teaching kids how to catch their first fish. It’s recommended that the littles ones be at least 6 years old to join you on the trip, life jackets for them will be provided. All you need to bring is sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and maybe some snacks.

Team up with Hook’d Up Charters and let your Florida fishing escapades begin!

Captain Jeff Jenkins always loved everything that has to do with fishing, and for a long while, he did it only in his spare time. When he finally decided to run charters for a living, he went all in and got his Captain License. He's been on the water ever since, taking people out, showing them just how amazing fishing is off the coast of East Florida. Capt. Jeff likes nothing more than seeing his customers happy and having a good time.
