In my 30+ years of Charter fishing in Ocean Reef, Key Largo, Islamorada (Florida Keys), and the Bahamas, I have mastered fishing in the Backcountry, Gulf of Mexico, and Offshore waters. We’ll fish safely and successfully onboard your vessel.

Proficient for over 30 years in operating and caring for outboard powered vessels from 18 to 50 feet and from single to quad engines. Your vessel will be in experienced hands! Additionally, very good with a cast net and ALWAYS catch live bait with you.

The charge is $500 for the day plus expenses. Expenses will depend on where we plan on fishing and what we may need such as chum, hooks, leader, etc… We will discuss the details and your wants/needs and make an individual plan before we head out!
