Off The Rock Charters

Dipping down between the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, Key West is the ultimate spot for some deep sea fishing. Captain Brad Nowicki has fished and dived in these waters for his whole life. His experience of these waters with Off The Rock Charters makes him the man to guide you through the Keys.

Make yourself welcome aboard his 34’ Yellowfin center console, outfitted with reliable twin 300 HP Suzuki four-stroke engines. This vessel is suitable for 4 guests, contains ample space and all of the gear required for fishing, as well as an onboard toilet.

When you’re fishing with Brad, expect to target all the finest species that Key West has to offer. Grouper and Snapper are plentiful in the area, as are bigger beasts such as Sailfish and Tuna. Expect to catch a healthy amount and to return to the shore with a full cooler.

You’ll start your trip catching some live bait as you head out on the waves. Brad has his trusted Quantam and TFO branded rods and reels on board and provides a license so that they’re ready for you to use. When the trip is over he’s happy to clean your fish, so you can take them straight to a local restaurant to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Water and ice are provided so take your favorite drinks if you have a sweeter tooth. As well as this, take food, sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen. With these in your pack, leave it to Capt. Brad to ensure you have a memorable day reeling them in.

I’m Captain Brad Nowicki, and I have been fishing and diving the Florida Keys my entire life. I've been featured on TV shows such as River Monsters, and George Poveromo's World of Saltwater Fishing. I have a true passion for the water and for all the things in it. I will use this experience to make your fishing trip in Key West a pleasurable and successful expedition. If you book with me I'll be getting you “off the rock” and onto the water.
