Knotty Game Charters

With Knotty Game Charters, the world-renowned waters of Key West will be all yours, from the inshore waters to the wrecks, reefs, and up to 50 miles offshore. If you want to fish like the locals and be part of the crew, you have found the right place.

This family-owned company is operated by Captain Chris, an experienced angler with a lot of passion and local knowledge. He brings a refreshing combination humor, skill, and talent to the local fishing scene.

Capt. Chris will greet you with a warm welcome aboard his 26’ Regulator center console. This clean, seaworthy vessel comes powered by twin 225 HP Yamaha V6 engines and has plenty of space for up to 6 anglers. The boat is a perfect balance between a hardcore fishing machine and a comfortable cruiser. Plus, there is a clean restroom aboard!

Knotty Game Charters and Capt. Chris believe you deserve nothing but the very best. Fishing along the coast and way out into the prolific waters far offshore, you will be able to get your hands on anything from Tarpon, Mangrove Snapper, Mutton Snapper and Kingfish to Yellowtail Snapper, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Grouper, Sailfish, Cobia… and the list just keeps going!

All trips come inclusive with quality rod, reels, tackle, lures, bottled water, licenses, and bait. Once you’re done catching, your fish will be cleaned and ready to go straight into the frying pan. Plus, the marina has a wonderful restaurant (Hurricane Hole) that would love to cook your fresh catch for you.

Knotty Game Charters is run and operated by Captain Chris Cahill, a "water-man" through and through. Growing up on the New Jersey shore, Chris had all the time in the world to explore the aquatic opportunities the area had to offer. He tried surfing, fishing, and boating, spending countless hours on the water with his father. After he graduated from high school, Chris pursued a career as a chef and fished professionally all at the same time. He moved down to Key West in 2009 after 8 successful years of cooking. There, Chris fished in various tournaments, met many great captains, and mastered those beautiful waters.
