Dee Cee

84001 Overseas Hwy
Islamorada FL, United States

Dee Cee runs year round fishing trips out of Islamorada, FL. These fisheries are supreme and can yield anything from a Permit to Marlin. Whether you’re a seasoned angler of a novice fisherman, Captain Chuck will make sure you have an unforgettable trip.

The fishing grounds around Islamorada boast a rich array of species. During the winter you will typically target Sailfish, King Mackerel, Cobia, Amberjack, Mutton Snapper, and Grouper. Get ready for trolling and bottom fishing! Spring and summer are a good time to target Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, or Permit and many other species closer to the shore.

You will be fishing from a 42’ Sportfisherman, a custom built vessel that can accommodate up to six anglers. She is powered by a twin 3208 Catterpillar engine. The boat is large and features a spacious salon with a dining table, a couch, toilet, four fighting chairs in the cockpit, and assortment of Penn and Dawia fishing reels. The crew utilizes Lowrance navigational electronics to put you on track and help you reach the fisheries without hassle.

Captain Chuck has been fishing for over three decades and knows these waters intimately. He actually owned his first boat at the age of 10. Having worked as a mate first, Chuck went on to become a captain back in 1983. Ever since then he’s been helping people have a nice time on the water and come back with an enviable catch.

When you’re preparing for the trip, there are just a couple of things to have in mind. The captain will supply all the fishing gear and bait, but you should bring food, drinks, sunblock, a hat, comfortable clothes, and a camera. Then hop onboard Dee Cee and have a blast with Captain Chuck!

Just an awesome day with Capt Chuck and Eddie on the Dee Cee. We could not have scripted a better experience…. Great Service, boat and crew. Extremely experienced and knowledgeable about fishing the Keys, placing us on an abundance Sailfish and more. If you want a comfortable and professional sport fishing experience Capt Chuck and crew aboard the Dee Cee will not disappoint.

Captain Chuck and first mate Mike were awesome! They were friendly, funny, and relaxed. You could tell both had a lot of experience and knowledge. Captain Chuck took us right out to a great spot where we caught tons of yellowtail! Then took us to deeper water for some Amber Jack. After researching other options on this site, I couldn’t be happier with choosing Dee Cee!
