Key West is home to a wide range of gorgeous fish species that are just waiting for the right angler to show up and give them a proper fight. Reel Smoker is here to give you just that – Captain John Jr. has fished this area his whole life and is keen to show you the hottest spots and put you on the best bite.

Join him aboard their brand new, 2019-edition 28’ center console, made by Blue Wave boatworks. She’s powered by a 350 HP Mercury engine, that allows the boat to travel at a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. She’s spacious and allows for up to 6 anglers to fish in comfort, without tangling lines. Outriggers are there to give you an extra reach when trolling. A live bait well will keep your bait alive and kicking, so you can just focus on the fishing. If the sun gets a bit too hot, the t-top will provide shade.

Captain John Jackson Jr. will take you after a wide range of excellent fish that live in this area. You can target Amberjacks, Cobias, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Jack Crevalles, Kingfish, Permits, Snappers, Groupers, Sharks, Tarpon, and many other species. To land these big boys you can try several different techniques, like spinning, bottom fishing, and drift fishing, all while using light or heavy tackle.

The Silver King is one of the stars of the show with Reel Smoker and it can be targeted year-round, however, the best fishing for Tarpon in this area is between March and July.

Live bait is either prepared before you arrive or caught during the trip, but always included in the price. All rods, reels, and tackle needed will be provided by the captain. There’s no minimum age for kids with Reel Smoker and anglers of all ages and skill levels are invited to join them on this exciting fishing adventure!

Born and raised in the Florida Keys, I learned to fish at an early age. Fishing and diving became my second nature. First, I started working as a commercial fisherman and then added being a professional guide to my resume. I'm a third generation captain and professional guide. I've proved my skill in various tournaments.
