Island Lure Charters is all about fishing and fun. Fishing the reef and wrecks to offshore and bay we catch snapper, grouper, mackerel, mahi, tuna, and much more. The Island Lure is a clean and comfortable boat that is owned and operated by Capt TJ and will cater to meet the needs and desires of each and every fishing trip. From the experienced angler to novice I will do all I can to provide a fun,safe and productive day on the water. Specializing in family fishing trips everybody is welcomed on the Island Lure.

We had a great day fishing with Captain TJ. He was very attentive and patient with our 11 and 12 year old children. We caught lots of fish, which he cleaned for us and we had a delicious dinner.
