Dibs On Bottom Adventures

Whether you’re a fan of offshore reel-screaming action, productive reef and wreck fishing, or anything in between, Dibs On Bottom Adventures has a trip for you!

Join Captain Aaron Young, a Florida native who’s eager to put you on the best bite around. You’ll fish from his 30’ Contender center console, a spacious boat that allows for up to 4 anglers to fish at the same time. She’s powered by twin Yamaha outboard engines, so you can travel at a maximum cruising speed of 33 knots. A live bait well will keep your baitfish spry and appetizing long after you’ve caught it.

Capt. Aaron will take you all around Key West. You can hit the ever-productive reefs and wrecks that dot the waters near the coast.

You’ll troll for Sailfish, Swordfish, Kingfish, and others – with the help of outriggers. You can even try kite fishing if you’re feeling adventurous, but that depends on the winds. Bottom fishing can produce great fish like Red, Mutton, and Yellowtail Snapper. If you’re up for a fight, Amberjack can also be targeted. Many other fish are on the catch list too, talk to the captain to figure out what you want to target.

The captain will do pickup from local hotels with boat access, contact him before arriving to work out the details. A first mate is on board and will assist you with whatever you need and clean and fillet your catch. Gratuity is greatly appreciated! There’s no minimum age for kids and thanks to the on-board electric reels, they can battle even bigger beasts!

So, if you’re ready to see just why this area is one of the most productive and exciting fisheries in the world, book a trip with Dibs On Bottom Adventures!

Captain Aaron Young is a true Florida native, born and raised there. He's been fishing his whole life, learning where the best bite is and how to trick the local fish into getting hooked. His favorite thing about fishing is the fact that no two days are alike, there's always something new to discover out on the sea. He hopes you'll join him so he can share his wonder and love of angling with customers young and old!
