High Stakes Charters runs offshore fishing trips with style. These fishermen have over three decades of combined fishing experience, and can put you on a variety of fish swimming around the waters of Key West.
From novice to pro anglers, anglers fishing with High Stakes Charters come back to the shore with a grin. And rightly so. Here you can find Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Blue Marlin, Snapper, Grouper, Wahoo, Sailfish and many other pelagics and bottom fish. Just one glimpse around the photos, and you will understand why many fishermen come back to fish together with Don and Jason Jonas.
This father/son duo aims to give their guests an exciting and unforgettable day on the water. When he was 16, Don became a diver for a prominent treasure hunter, Mel Fisher, subsequently captaining the crew’s 85’ dive boat. Jason was born and raised in Key West, and decided early on to follow in his father’s footsteps. The crew’s passion and love for fishing saw them discovering and testing the waters of numerous famed fishing destinations, including Belize, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Bahamas and more.
