Went out this morning for a 1/2 day of fishing with the family, including my 11 year old son. Captain Jimbo was great, doing his best to make sure we had a awesome fishing outing! He especially paid close attention to my son to make sure he was successful in reeling in the spotted trout! Would highly recommend to anyone!

Let me start off by saying I tried to set up a Charter while in Cedar key a week before our trip there. One Captain called me back and then never heard from him again when he said he would let me know on a time. Then I called Saltwater Assassins and I'm glad I did. I have taken several... More

I went out with my nephew for a half day trip in September, limited out on reds within the first hour. Spent the rest of the trip targeting large reds and my nephew loves throwing popping corks for sea trout which we caught quite a few of. Great day on the water with Capt Jimbo, an experienced and local guide.

Captain Steven was an amazing guide! He was excellent with my two boys who are 7 and 9 and have tons of questions. He put us on the fish all day and we were always in the action. Can't wait to come back to Cedar Key and will definitely use Captain Steven again!!

Was dragged out by friends. Yes...I said dragged out. I wasn't in the state of mind to go fishing. We had just finished a week and a half of Hurricane clean up here in Cedar Key. Being a volunteer coordinator takes a lot out of you. We went out and within 5 minutes of the boat stopping we were on... More

Saltwater Assassin charters were highly recommended and so worth it! Capt. Steven Keith was super friendly and knowledgeable. We did a half day charter and caught speckled trout, redfish and our daughter caught a sting ray that really put up a fight. We had a great time and will definitely use these guys again! Thanks again Capt. Steven - you... More

We fished a half day with Capt. Steve. He was not only knowledgable, professional and safe, you could tell he really loved what he was doing. Not only did we walk away with more meat than we knew what to do with, we left with a new buddy too!!!
