What a fun morning we had today. I always get to take the nicest people out fishing and honestly it never gets old. John and his wife were so much fun to have on the water. To make a great day even better the fishing was better than good so that just made the day even better. We started our day catching some Yellowtail snappers for dinner but the bite was not up to par.  We soon switched gears and headed out to a deep wreck where we had much better luck. We caught 5 huge Barracuda along with a few nice Amber jacks. We added a few other random species to our catch list before heading in around noon to filet our snapper up for a fresh catch lunch.

inshore mayhem

Today we were fishing a 4 hour trip with a lovely family of 5. The weather was a bit gloomy and windy so we decided to fish some inshore stuff and man was that the right call. We started our day catching some Pinfish and ballyhoo for live bait. After about 20 minutes we had more than enough for the day so we headed off to our first spot. We anchored the boat in about 20 feet of water and got our rods ready. The first bait out had a bight before the second even made it in the water. The action was so fast I could hardly keep up. We were catching Mutton snappers left and right on our live baits. We also caught some nice Mangrove snappers and even a few groupers. To top the whole day off we also landed a huge Nurse shark on 40 lb. test after a long 15 minute fight. Today was a perfect day on the water we had calm seas and all the fishing action we could handle. No matter what the weather is hitting us with here in Key West we can almost always manage to get out and have a great day.

Wreck fishing home run

We started our day on a wreck in 150 feet where we landed multiple barracudas over 40 inches. We also landed a beautiful Mutton snappers and Black grouper before leaving our first spot. We then moved to a deeper wreck in 280 feet where we drifted large live baits in search of big Amber jacks. We hooked on our first 2 drifts but lost our first 2 bite sadly. On our next few drifts our luck turned around and we landed some big Amber jacks back to back before heading in.

First time fishing fun

Today I got to have the pleasure of taking 2 lovely couples out. Tina had called me to set up the trip and let me know that this would be here first time ocean fishing. We headed out with an intention of fishing one of my favorite spots. Sadly as I arrived the conditions were a worse case scenario. Knowing this I headed a few miles to another one of my go to spots. After setting the boat on a patch of reef in about 20 feet we started fishing. The bite was great we started catching fish left and right. We landed lots of Mangrove and Mutton snappers along with a handful of Red groupers. With lots of fish in the cooler and far more released we headed home to cut up our fish for a delicious lunch.


super 6 hour

Today was a another great day on the water. We decided to go a little further than normal but I had recently fished this wreck and had great success. After about an hour boat ride we arrived at a wreck in about 250 feet. I anchored the boat near the wreck and the action was as fast as we could handle. We were catching fish so fast we needed breaks between putting lines in. We caught Amber jack, Almaco jack, Red snapper, Mutton snapper and even Vermilion snappers just to name a few. After putting enough fish in the cooler for dinner we let the rest go and had an amazing day of catching fish. We only needed one stop on today’s trip before we headed in even a bit early with tired arms ready to kick back and relax.

Inshore afternoon

Today we did an evening 4 hour trip. It was a little slow at first but as the sun started getting low and the bite started to heat up. We were using live Pinfish fishing in about 25 feet of water on some shallow reef. We caught snapper after snapper and even a few nice Red groupers that we released before watching a beautiful sunset on our way in.

Day with mom and pop

Today was an awesome day fishing with my parents. We had done some reef fishing the day before and caught some really nice Yellowtail snappers. Our plan was to switch it up and fish out deep for some bigger snappers. As we headed out to the wreck I planned to fish I saw a bunch of Tuna breaking the surface eating some bait. I had just enough time to cast a plug on the boil and hooked up right away. We landed one big tuna before the fish when down. We continued our way to the wreck where we crushed the fish. We caught Jacks, Vermilion, Tuna, Mutton and , True reds one after the other. With almost no room in the cooler my mom hooked into one last monster fish. After a long fight she landed our best fish of the day boating a 30 lb Cubera snapper.

Power 6 hour

We had our sights set on big fish so that what we did. We skipped the reef and started out deep. We anchored the boat up on a wreck in 250 feet and never need to move. We caught Amber Jack one after the other till our arms were spent. We than put our focus on some snappers and it wasn’t long till we had more than enough for dinner. Some days the fish just jump in the boat as fast as you put the lines out. Its not always like that but got to love it when it is.

Key West Pprivate Fishing Charters

big sharks and snappers

Today we headed out on a 6 hour charter with a group of 6 guys. We started our day off catching yellowtail snappers and a few monster sharks. We later moved out to the deep and caught a few Amber Jacks and some big Barracudas. We had nonstop action all day from the reef to the deep wrecks. All in all it was a perfct day in the water with some awesome guys.

Christmas Day

I had originally had today’s trip set for Christmas eve but the weather outlook was so much nicer Christmas day I was happy to move the trip. We had planned to do a spearfish and fish combination but the water was a bit dirty from the almost week long high winds so diving was going to be tough. We started fishing on a wreck in 150 feet where we caught Yellowtails, Barracudas and Blue runners. After bending the rods and having a great time fishing we put the fishing gear and got suited up for some spearfishing. We worked a few a beautiful reef spots shooting a few cool fish before packing it in and heading home.
