Captain Jay Charters

Capt. Jason Lingham Marathon, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

The Florida Keys brings anglers from far and wide to test their luck in one of the world’s hottest fishing grounds. Take the “Luck” out of the equation and book your fishing trip with a local guide! Captain Jay Charters brings years of local experience to the table and treats every trip like it’s his own. Captain Jason works with each group prior to arrival so he can gear your day on the water to meet your expectations, no two trips are ever the same!

Offshore trophy hunters and young families alike will benefit from Captain Jason’s experience. He’s become intimately familiar with the inshore and offshore migration and feeding patterns of Marathon’s gamefish, with each trip targeting different species. Young families and new comers to the sport have a blast on inshore fishing trips that target Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Grouper, and other exciting species. The adrenaline junkies lean towards Capt. Jason’s longer trips that head offshore targeting Tuna, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and so much more.

If this is going to be a family trip with lil’ anglers coming on board, Captain Jason will have you chasing a range of fun, kid friendly fish that’ll have everyone on board in on the action! Mangrove Snapper and Yellowtail Snapper are found in abundance just off the coast of Marathon, the kids will have a blast reeling these fish in!

Captain Jay Charters maintains a spacious 28ft Center Console that can comfortably fish groups of 6. She’s powered by twin 200hp Suzuki engines to get you to and from the fishing grounds with haste! Captain Jason will provide your group with all of the fishing equipment you’ll need for a successful day on the water, just bring any personal items you may want.

Get ready to reel in lifelong memories, your action-packed day on the water with Captain Jay Charters is just a couple of clicks away!
