Cowboy Charters – Blue Cowboy

There’s no place like Key West to fulfill your fishing dreams and if you’re looking for a company to lead the charge, Cowboy Charters is at your service! Captain Mark Baumgarten and his skilled crew know the ways of the fish and are happy to share the knowledge with their customers.

It will all start on a comfortable 34’ Contender with plenty of space to sit up to 6 adventurous anglers and twin 300 HP Yamaha engines. The vessel is rigged with the top-notch navigational equipment to keep you on your prey and a live bait well. If you’re going on a longer expedition, there’s a private porta potty on board, so you can fish without a worry in the world.

But the top-of-the-line boat is only one of many perks Cowboy Charters has to offer. The professional crew makes it their mission to put you on the bite. Chase Billfish superstars like White Marlin and Sailfish, or land sizeable Mahi Mahi, Mutton Snapper, and Amberjack. If your thrill is chasing apex predators, targeting Sharks is another specialty of Capt. Mark. The waters around Key West are as plentiful as they are varied.

Feel free to come fishing with your kids, all ages are welcome aboard. The crew will have safety jackets for everyone. You’ll find all the fishing gear you need on the boat, including reliable Venspaal and Penn spinning rods. At the end of the day, you will get your catch cleaned and filleted for your convenience.

Everything will be provided for your next fishing escapade, just remember to bring your favorite food and drinks for the trip, and leave everything else in the capable hands of Cowboy Charters! New fishing horizons await!
