If you’re looking for a charter that can take you into the Atlantic after some major pelagic predators, as well as provide a fun and safe experience for new anglers, you’re looking for Hound Dawg Charters. Captain Scott Feltman knows all the hottest fishing spots around, from the coast to the deep blue sea.

Join Capt. Scott or Capt. Ricky aboard “Hound Dawg”, a 48’ Viking sportfishing boat. She’s quite spacious, able to hold 6 anglers fishing at the same time without bumping elbows. She’s quite comfortable, so you can relax and just focus on the perfect cast. A fully air-conditioned cabin will keep you cool. Added comfort comes from a full-head toilet, brand new indoor couch and seating, and brand new carpet and counter tops.

She’s seriously equipped for sportfishing too. Outriggers will extend your reach when trolling, while a live bait tank makes sure your bait stays active and appetizing. A fighting chair will give you support as you battle big boys offshore. Her brand new 2021 dual 625 FPT engines allow you to cruise at a maximum speed of 28 knots, impressive for a vessel her size.

Capt. Scott or Capt. Ricky will take you after a variety of gorgeous fish. You’ll troll for Kingfish and Sailfish, bottom fish for Groupers, and also do some spinning and drift fishing. You can even do some kite fishing for Marlin! You will be provided with all the required equipment by the captain.

There is a first mate on board to clean and fillet your catch, also to assist you in any way possible. He works for tips and a 20% tip is customary.

Get your polarized sunglasses and waterproof camera, and book a trip to set off on an offshore adventure of a lifetime with Hound Dawg Charters!

Growing up in south Florida, I started fishing at a young age and that is when my passion for fishing began. I have been fishing the waters of Florida Keys for over 25 years. I enjoy seeing the smiles on people's faces when they catch their very first fish of any size.
