If you’re looking for some of the best fishing that money can buy out of Key West, Florida, you can’t go wrong with Corsair 2 Sportfishing. With over 3 decades of local fishing experience under his belt, Captain Russ McKinley is your man if you want to get the best out of these deep blue waters.

His boat is a 50’ Hatteras saltwater fishing boat that can take up to 6 anglers fishing at the same time. Powered by twin 550 HP Detroit Diesel‎ engines, this fishing machine is unstoppable on the water.

The vessel comes rigged with state-of-the-art navigational electronics and safety equipment, outriggers, a fighting chair, a live bait tank, and ice-boxes. It’s also very comfortable and features 2 private restrooms, a kitchen, a flybridge, beds, and AC.

This beauty can take you for some amazing deep sea and reef fishing up to 25 miles offshore on full day trips. These trips will also provide higher chances of catching Marlin! If you book a half day trip, you’ll be fishing in a 2–12 mile range. Depending on the package and the bite, your target list will include Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Marlin, Snapper, Grouper, and many other attractive species.

Corsair 2 Sportfishing will provide the finest fishing gear and lures. You’ll get a chance to catch your own bait on the way to the most productive fisheries. The first mate will gladly clean your catch and help you with everything you need, so 20% gratuity for his efforts is customary. Feel free to bring any snacks and drinks to be stored in the onboard cooler. Also, bring sunscreen and hats.

Corsair 2 Sportfishing will make sure you have everything else and that you have a blast fishing with them.
