Jeni Lyn Fishing Charters

We’re born and raised Florida Key locals who know the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico like the back of our hands. Our 45+ years of experience mean that we’ll help you hook and land the “Fish of a Lifetime!”

We provide fishing excursions leaving from Marathon, FL, to the surrounding waters, including deep sea, night fishing, and The Everglades. Our Captain, Michael Taute, is a local favorite fishing guide. He’s a 2nd generation Keys fisherman – one who will be sure to please you! He captained the 1st place winner for the Ladies Tarpon Tournament in 2008. He was also featured by the Florida Sportsman in 2007. He knows his fish! Captain Michael can help you decide which type of fish to look for, depending upon season, weather, and bite.

CATCH THE FISH OF A LIFETIME!

We get our customers out to the right spots where they’ll have the best chance of catching fish. Don’t worry about anything, we have all the equipment needed, from tackles to the captain with fishing licenses and proper training for any situation.
01. OFFSHORE FISHING.

Offshore fishing, also known as deep sea fishing, is a one of a kind experience. Jeni Lyn Fishing Charters offers the ultimate angling experience as you go after the heavy hitters an extreme adrenaline rush. There are some factors, based on the time of year and the Gulf Current, that dictate which type of offshore fish you should aim to battle. You can try for these fish all year long, but the below listed seasons are the best times to find ’em, hook ’em, and reel ’em in.

02. REEF/WRECK FISHING.

Reef fishing in the Florida Keys is lots of fun. Captain Mike will take you to a great spot on the reef, anchor up and put chum in the water. On the reef you can catch delicious Yellowtail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Black and Red Grouper, Mackerel and even Sailfish when the conditions are right. Reef fishing typically yields smaller fish than offshore but you can often catch high quantities and a lot of variety. It is a great option for novices and families with older and young members as you do not have to go very far offshore and are much closer to land during the trip. That being said, in the winter time when kite fishing is available be prepared for some big fish action on the reef!

03. TARPON FISHING.

Tarpon fishing offers heart pumping, acrobatic big fish action. Tarpon are targeted under bridges and near shore. Jeni Lyn charters releases all Tarpon caught as they are not eating fish. Tarpon fishing in the Keys is best April-July but available all year.

SEE WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US

“My group of 4 experienced anglers has been visiting/fishing the keys each year for ten years. Fished with Capt. Mike on the Jeni-Lyn for the first time this week. He is tops. Very accommodating in that he facilitated the type of fishing my group sought i.e. actively casting to top-feeding fish. We caught fish non-stop. Multiple species. Had multiple triple & quadruple simultaneous hookups. Lost count how many fish we caught. Also saw sharks and osprey up close and personal while we were hooked up to fish. That made it even more fun. The Jeni-Lyn is a clean, solid and comfortable fishing vessel – docked at a nice marina. And Mike is a very pleasant guy. We are definitely going to fish Mike again!”

M. F. CROSSON

“Captain Mike did an awesome job, both my husband and daughter came back with huge smiles and a ton of hog fish! Took less than an hour to catch their limit on hog fish and left them biting!”

ANGIE C

“My wife and I had awesome fishing trip with a great captain. This was my wife’s first offshore trip and Capt. Mike should us a great trip. I fish a lot and Capt. Mike is one of the best.
