One thing on my bucket list was to catch a tarpon so we booked a fishing trip with Capt. Knapp. After a very long 4 min boat ride we caught a barracuda and a shark. This angered our Captain so we moved to the 7...More

We chartered for the first time with Jeff Knapp while we were visiting Marathon Key. We chose Tarpon fishing because we heard how much fun and how challenging it can be because of the feisty nature of Tarpon. Problem is....we didn't hook a single Tarpon...More

I have been fishing with Jeff for at least 15 years. I have no idea how many people have fished with me-but I can say I can not think of one who has not been back. One of the neat things is that we do...More

Supposedly we were too early in the season. That was according to the people at the bar! Not for Jeff. He had us on big Tarpon within 5 minutes of leaving the dock. My wife and I were quickly taught how to cast and handle...More

No one else around us had any action, but we were non-stop. Ten bites, 4 hookups, 3 long fights and a couple fish. Capt. Jeff works you hard, teaches well and is a blast. I'd fish with him any time, anywhere. Best money I spent...More
