Run And Gun Fishing Charters

If you’re looking for a fast-paced angling adventure located in Florida’s world-famous Keys, then you’ve come to the right place! With experienced Captain Tom Beaupre at the helm, Run and Gun Fishing Charters fish the Marathon area of the Florida Keys year-round, and know exactly where and when the hottest bite will be around. Capt. Tom also stays true to his charter’s name – he won’t slow down or stop until your catch is in his sight!

Capt. Tom has been fishing the Keys as a licensed captain for over 25 years, and specializes in exploring offshore waters, local reefs and wrecks, and the famous Florida Bay with his guests. Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome aboard – Capt. Tom loves showing newbies and little ones the ropes, as well as helping more experienced fishermen tangle lines with world-famous fish.

You’ll be traveling on board the “Run & Gun,” a 27’ Grady White center console, powered by twin 200 HP Yamaha engines. No matter how far you stray from shore, she offers a safe and comfortable journey for up to 4 guests, and is decked out with GPS, fishfinder, and life jackets in various sizes. Whether you’re spinning for Tarpon in the shallows, or plumbing the depths of the ocean for Grouper and Snapper, there’s plenty of deck room available for your whole group to fish at the same time.

As well as targeting the famous “Silver King” and reef-dwelling species, Capt. Tom also offers his guests the chance to head up to 30 miles offshore in search of seriously big game fish. You’ll come face-to-gills with Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and even the mighty Sailfish. These fish put up a serious fight, and your captain will be on hand to show you the best techniques to use. You can also try something a little different and kite fish for your catch.

Your trip includes rods, reels, bait, tackle, and a fishing license. Join Capt. Tom onboard his charter, and spend an exciting day in the Florida Keys, running and gunning for the catch of your dreams!
