Come to Marathon, Florida and have lots of fun fishing its productive waters of the Florida Keys with Runaway Sportfishing Charters and Captain Jay Daniels.

Captain Jay is the owner and operator of Runaway Sportfishing Charters. His main mentor was his father. He introduced me to fishing on lakes, rivers, and the ocean. He eventually became a mate and was the mate for some of the best captains on the east coast for 9 years. Captain Jay has been running Runaway Sportfishing Charters for the last 11 years. He looks forward to sharing a memorable fishing experience with you like you’ve never had before.

Your trip will take place on a 45’ sport fisherman. With its powerful 660 HP Cummins engine and top-quality navigation gear, it’ll give you a comfortable ride to the hottest fishing spots.
