Adventure awaits with Prime Time Charters Key Largo! With beautiful reefs, productive backcountry, and the Everglades National Park all easily accessible, there’s no telling how many fish you can catch. Head out with Captain Shawn MacMullin, a second-generation captain who’s always ready for memorable fishing experiences.

Your vessel for the day is a 2021, 25’ Pathfinder bay boat, powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine. This state-of-the-art fishing machine is ideal for navigating the diverse terrains in the Keys and you’ll have the opportunity to be one of the first to fish on it. There’s plenty of space for 4 anglers to fish at the same time comfortably and a T-top to keep you sheltered from the Florida sun.

Fishing doesn’t get much more diverse than in the Florida Keys! Choose to explore the backcountry and take in stunning wildlife as you fish, or explore the Everglades National Park. Your targets in these inshore waters include Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Seatrout, and Snapper. Head a little deeper and the crystal clear waters are stocked with Snapper, Grouper, and Hogfish!

Capt. Shawn provides all the rods, reels, and tackle you need for maximum efficiency. If you’d like to do some fly fishing, let him know in advance and he can bring along equipment for that too. He’s also happy to clean and fillet any keeper catch at the end of your trip. Just pack any drinks and snacks you’d like to enjoy throughout the day and you’re ready to go!

Whether you are an experienced angler or a beginner you’ll have a great time with Prime Time Charters!

I have lived and fished my entire life in the Florida Keys and I am a second generation charter captain. I have had the chance to fish around the world and found that there is no better place for variety or choices of angling techniques as you have in the upper keys. While still in high school I worked and obtained my US coast guard captains license and chose to spend my life in pursuit of fish and adventure around my home in the keys.
