Finding fish here in Key West is the easy part for me as a fishing guide. Working with people to catch them is the fun part. Using techniques learned from a lifetime of fishing I try to show my anglers the best way to cast to, hook, and land our sport fish day in and day out. From the hard core extreme angler to the first timer there is not a fishing charter I cannot handle.


Offering 4, 6, and 8 hour private fishing charters departing out of Key West daily using three different kinds of state of the art boats. We work with your schedule and can custom tailor your day to the tides moon or sun if needed to add to your success.


It’s up to you. Fishing out of Key West we can stay in the shallows and go flats fishing for tarpon permit or bonefish. Head offshore for some wreck and reef fishing out past the Marquesas Keys. Don’t forget the affordable deep sea fishing charters that I offer all departing out of Key West at the beautiful Sunset Marina.
