Dog House Sportfishing Charters

There is no better time to fish with Dog House Sportfishing Charters. Captain Jesse Cromer and his crew are ready and eager to show you an awesome time, catch some awesome fish, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

You’ll spend the day on their 53’ Hatteras. This prized yacht provides everything you’ll need for an action-packed day on the water – she will provide a smooth and comfortable ride, allowing you to relax between bites.

Why is this boat so great? Well, the 3 air-conditioners definitely help in the summer. The refrigerator and freezer are great to keep your food and drinks cool, so you can relax with a cold one after reeling in one of the aquatic giants that call Islamorada home. For anyone that wants to take a break, they can sit back and relax in front of the TV, or put on a DVD, or even tune in to the stereo.

The boat also comes with full navigational and safety equipment. Couple this with the crew’s great knowledge of the area, and you’ll find your rods bent the whole day long.

On the menu are Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper, Mutton Snapper, offshore Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Roosterfish, Hogfish, and many more. You’ll be using top of the line equipment, which are ready to tackle every kind of fishing and won’t let you down when you’re reeling in your trophy catch.

No matter your experience level or age, there is a fish out there with your name on it! Let Capt. Jesse show you the tricks of the trade, help you hook it, and bring it aboard.

Your fishing license is included in the price. You’ll just need to grab your food and drink for the day, plenty of sunscreen and come on down and meet the crew.

Capt. Jesse can’t wait to welcome you on board. Book with Dog House Sportfishing Charters today for an unforgettable experience.
