Floridakeysoutdoors

Start your fishing adventure with Florida Keys Outdoors! Captain Lenny Zappa has been on a boat since the age of 7 and fishing is a way of life for him. Born in America’s oldest seaport, Glouchester, MA, he moved to Florida in search of the best fishing grounds. He believes that “there truly is no other fishery in the world like the Florida Keys” and you should grab the endless opportunities that this place offers.

Welcome aboard Capt. Lenny’s 25’ Everglades center console. This modern boat was built in 2014 and powered by a mighty 300 HP Yamaha engine. The captain keeps his boat in outstanding condition, as he wants to make sure that every time you step aboard it is extremely clean and comfortable. She accommodates up to 4 guests and everybody can fish at the same time.

Your inshore trip will take place around the local bridges or patch reefs, where you will mostly target Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish, and Amberjack. If you want to top up your game, try out the offshore trolling. Capt. Lenny will take you up to 20 miles offshore to challenge those feisty deep water species – Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, or Mahi Mahi.

Capt. Lenny usually prepares live bait before the trip and provides Penn and Shimano rods and reels. After the trip, he will clean and fillet your catch at no extra charge. Kids are welcome on the boat, but please bring a life jacket for them.

Florida Keys Outdoors is inviting you to spend a day in paradise, so why not come and join them? Your adventure begins here – just choose the date!

Fishing has been in my family for as many generations as I can think of, it has always been a passion of mine and there is no place better than the ocean. I grew up in America's oldest seaport, Gloucester, MA. I have recreational fished and commercial fished since age 7. I have been down in the Florida Keys fishing the last 3 years. There truly is no other fishery in the world like the Florida Keys, opportunities are endless.
