If you want to experience the true magnificence of Key West’s incredible fishing grounds, come aboard Blind Squirrel Charters and get ready for an unforgettable angling adventure! Captain Mike Weinhofer has used his years of fishing knowledge to develop a special technique that means each guest gets a fully “hands-on” experience. As well as this, he also offers a huge range of trips that target some seriously desirable fisheries.
Capt. Mike is a lifelong angler who always knew that he’d grow up to become a Key West fisherman – in fact, at the age of 7, he told his dad it was his biggest dream! Over 28 years ago, he made this dream come true, and began chartering his own boat. This turned into a successful business, and he now runs year-round angling trips. Whether you’re looking for a quick morning adventure, or want to spend days at sea, there’s something for you!
Capt. Mike’s 63’ custom built boat, “The Blind Squirrel,” is a vessel to be proud of. She was purpose-built to tackle a variety of waters, and to provide a smooth and safe journey for up to 41 guests, with room to fish all around the deck. She’s fully air-conditioned with 12 bunks, and has a large salon for shade and relaxation. You’ll also find top-notch navigational and safety gear on board. Your captain says it best: “She is set up to fish, and does it well!”
“The Blind Squirrel” is the only boat in Key West that’s licensed to head offshore with 6+ guests. If you’ve always wanted to battle world-famous big game fish alongside your family and friends, she’s the one for you! You’ll have the chance to hook Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, and more, as well as deep dropping around reefs for Grouper and Snapper. Your captain will have you hooking your own fish, casting your own bait, and learning to tie knots.
Your trip includes top-notch rods and reels, and a fishing license. Grab your favorite snacks and a cooler for all the fish you catch – with Blind Squirrel Charters’ huge success rates, you’ll need it!
