Wow, the conditions were stacked against us - 30 mph wind, 8 foot seas and the normally crystal clear waters of the Key West flats turned to a milky underwater sandstorm. We were not optimistic when we set out at the crack of dawn to "slay the big ones". However, thanks to the tenacity of our guide, Tommy, taking us... More

Fishing was pretty tough, had a massive front come through the night before we went out. Water temp dropped 7 degrees and we had 20 to 30 MPH sustained, so there was a pretty good chop. That being said our guide John was great, he's one of the younger guys there be we had a great time with him. He... More

My father and I, both “rookie” anglers, had the opportunity to fish with Captain Nick earlier this week, and had an absolute blast! While we weren’t entirely sure what to expect from fishing in the waters around Key West, we were thrilled with the variety of species and locations that Nick introduced us to. Both my father and I loved... More

Capt. "Iceman" Hugh knew where to find the fish! This charter was an early Christmas surprise for my husband and in just half a day, he enjoyed sport fishing, food fishing, and chumming for sharks. He caught 9 different species of fish, including our dinner. Capt. Hugh is personable and a pleasure to spend time with on the boat. We... More

Took the Shallow Water Monster charter, and we were not disappointed. Caught baitfish in the flats on light tackle, and learned what a great fight you get from a Jack Crevalle. We then moved in front of a channel that ran between two small mangrove islands, put some blood in the water, and "Boom!" Neither my wife nor I had... More
