Bad Boys Fishing Adventures

Bad Boys Fishing Adventures is calling all anglers vacationing in the busy Florida Keys! If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of big cities, come down to Marathon and join Captain Cristello and team for a fishing trip you won’t forget.

Fish for the best prize species offshore, explore nature and go snorkeling at the reefs. With 30 years of experience fishing the local waters, they will be able to cater to most requests and goals you have for the trip.

You’ll be doing all this from a spacious, 35’ Fountain, offshore sportfishing boat, powered by triple 250 HP Mercury engines. Onboard equipment includes the latest navigation and communication electronics, as well as all the necessary safety equipment. The boat features a small private toilet and an ice-box for any drinks and snacks you choose to bring along. 

The captain will provide you with Penn International rods and reels, as well as any terminal tackle you need for the fish you’re targeting. In case you need to use live bait on the trip, it will be caught prior to the trip and is always included in the price. Up to 6 anglers can join each trip and they can all fish together, employing several techniques to hook the targeted species.

The meetup location will have free parking and, about half a mile away, there are a couple of shops for drinks and snacks. Since many of the species you’ll be targeting also make for excellent table fare, if you’d like, the captain will clean your catch at the end of the trip.

Now, take a look at the captain’s calendar, find a slot that works for you and you’ll be able to start planning for your next deep-sea adventure right away!

Born and raised in Florida, Linda has been fishing all her life. About 20 years ago, thanks to her passion for the water that she grew up on, she decided to become a captain and give visitors to the area a chance to see just what it was that made her fall in love with the sea.
