Salty Goat Fishing Charters is glad to announce that they are once again available for trips after hurricane Irma and the ongoing recovery efforts!

Join their team for an unforgettable fishing trip in Key West, Florida. These water are abundant with delicious fish species you will be able to target with Captain Dan Bursma. He will teach you anything you need to know about fishing and make sure you are having a great day on the water.

Captain Dan will take you fishing in the reefs around Key West and put you on Mutton, Yellowtail, and Mangrove Snapper, as well as Black, Gag, and Red Grouper, and Amberjack. You will target the fish using light tackle, jigging, and bottom fishing techniques.

The Salty Goat is a 50-foot Markley commercial USCG inspected vessel, originally built in 1994 and restored in 2017. It is powered by a turbo diesel 400 HP Cummins engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 17 knots which means you will get to the reefs quickly and make the most of your fishing trip.

The vessel is fitted with the latest safety equipment such as life jackets, EPIRB, and a CPR-trained crew, as well as a GPS and a fishfinder. The boat is rated to carry over 30 passengers comfortably. Please note, all trips are shared.

Salty Goat Fishing Charters and their professional crew will be happy to bait your hook, reel in your fish, and put it in on the ice unless you want to release it. Once the trip is over, you can have your catch cleaned, filleted and bagged. The crew can recommend a local restaurant where you can have your fish cooked for a great end of the day!

Please check in at 8.30am for this trip.
