Blue Chip Too Charters

Islamorada has a unique benefit of being incredibly close to the Gulf Stream, allowing anglers to get serious offshore fishing done within a short distance from its sandy beaches. Combine that with the outstanding service and experience that Blue Chip Too Charters offers and you have the recipe for an excellent fishing adventure.

The vessel they operate is an impressive 48’ Guthrie, originally built in 1971. Like fine wine, she has only improved with age, all the while being equipped with state-of-the-art navigation and fishfinding systems. You can’t have serious offshore fishing without serious equipment, luckily she’s equipped with a flybridge, outriggers, fighting chair, and a live bait well. Comfort wasn’t skimped on either, with full A/C, a kitchen, beds, and a spacious toilet available on board.

Join Captain Skip Bradeen as he takes you fishing all over the south of Florida, targeting the rich and vibrant species that reside there. The nearshore areas, dotted with reefs and wrecks, contain many species such as Snappers, Groupers, Kingfish, Sharks, Bonito, and others. The real excitement happens further off the shore, where Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and the prestigious White and Blue Marlin reside, ready to battle eager anglers.

Blue Chip Too Charters offers cleaning and filleting your catch free of charge. There is no minimum age for children and the captain provides vests for all sizes. Free parking is available to the clients near the boat ramp. Customers should bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, adequate clothing, and a desire to catch some awesome keepers!

About the Captain

Captain Skip is a man with over five decades of fishing experience and it shows. He fell in love with fishing accidentally all those years ago, when he was a skipper for a day in Chesapeake Marina (now Whale Harbor). Just like a good hook, fishing stuck with him until today. His personal motto is for his customers to have a fantastic time on his trips, whether the fish were there or not. His love paid off as he was voted Best Charter Captain in the Upper Keys for 14 years in a row. He was also rated one of Saltwater Sportsman's 50 best captains in the world! Join him on an exciting fishing trip to see exactly why.
