A father/son duo, Don and Jason Jonas are committed to providing their guests with an exciting and memorable day at sea. When he was 16, Don became a diver for a prominent treasure hunter, Mel Fisher, subsequently captaining the crew’s 85’ dive boat. His son Jason was born and raised in Key West, and decided early on to follow in his father’s footsteps. The crew’s dedication saw them discovering and testing the waters of many renowned fishing locations, including Belize, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Bahamas and more.
With over 35 years of combined fishing experience, the High Stakes crew works hard to put you on a wide range of pelagics traversing the offshore waters, including the Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tun, Snapper, Grouper and many others.
High Stakes is located at Oceanside Marina which is on the south side of the island. All fishing gear is provided; the crew utilizes various tackle by Penn and Shimano, including Shimano TLD-25 and Shimano Tiagra 50w and 80w (two speed trolling reels). Apart from Rupps Marine Tournament Outriggers and Penn Fathom Master Downriggers, there’s also a Pompanette Pro Series Fighting Chair on board.
