The Florida Keys offer extensive fishing options and Fins and Feathers Fishing Charters provides just the service you need to do it all. Setting off from Key Largo, home to the only living reef in the US, you’re a stone’s throw away from the deep offshore waters, and Captain Jim Mulcahy knows exactly where the sweet spots are.

Powered by a 490 HP Cummins engine, you’ll be more than comfortable drifting along in the spacious 34’ SeaVee center console boat, which also makes sure you have 360-degree visibility. Fitted with outriggers and downriggers, your chance of catching that lucrative fish is enhanced by the equipment on board. All rods and reels are also of the highest quality, made by Penn.

Try your hand at kite fishing for a Sailfish, or troll along for some tasty Mahi Mahi or the smaller Yellowfin Snapper. If you’re lucky, you may even cross paths with a Swordfish, which will not only put up a good fight, but also provide you with a luxurious dinner afterward. You’ll be mainly fishing with live bait, prepared before the journey for you, while Capt. Jim will clean and prepare your catch for you to take home.

You can also take advantage of the “Diving Capital of the World” by letting the captain know that you’d like to use his scuba diving equipment. There really is fun to be had for the whole family, with Capt. Jim eager to pass on his passion to the next generation, just as his father did to him. With half, ¾, and full day trips on offer, there’s no excuse not to get booking!

Captain Jim Mulcahy was born and raised on the Florida Keys, taking after his father who was also a fishing boat captain. Since 1989, he himself has been a fishing boat guide, opening Fins and Feathers in 2007, and is a USCG-registered captain. Capt. Jim's passion doesn't end at the Keys, however. He is known to run boats in the Maryland and even Bermuda and the Bahamas. While in the Bahamas, he managed to reel in a 598 lb Blue Marlin in only 35 minutes, so his experience is second to none.
