Nice Guy Charters offers nothing less than the perfect Florida Keys fishing experience. After a boatful of fish? Maybe a mix of sportfishing and sightseeing? Captain Jeff LaPierre will build your dream day out, whatever that means to you. He prides himself on giving you complete flexibility and never sticks to a set formula for your time on the water.

The Florida Keys need no introduction as an angling location. These legendary waters are home to huge fish at every depth. The flats and backwaters are home to Tarpon and Mangrove Snapper while the reefs hold anything from Snapper and Grouper to Amberjack and Cobia. And that’s without ever getting started on the area’s awesome Shark fishing.

Where you fish and what you target is entirely up to you. You can head into open water on full day charters, and the reefs are always in reach. If you prefer to stay in the shallows, that’s fine too. You can even ditch the rods and grab some masks for a fun mix of snorkeling and angling. Just let Capt. Jeff know!

One thing you’ll always find onboard is a wide range of quality fishing gear. Try out bottom fishing, jigging, spinning, and more. Fish with live bait or switch to lures. Whatever you do, you’ll have the best rods, reels, bait, and tackle available. Fishing licenses are covered by the boat and your fish will be cleaned after the trip – all you need to do is show up and enjoy!
