Prime Time Charters Pathfinder

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 grew up fishing in the Florida Keys, Everglades National Park, and Bahamas with my father, who has been a Captain for over 30 years. I have fished all over the world and I feel for variety and consistency there is no better place than in the Florida Keys. In the Florida Keys we have the ability to fish offshore, nearshore, and back country and I charter them all. I love all of these areas and fish using a lot of different techniques. I'm licensed by the United States Coast Guard and carry full charter insurance coverage. I'm also a CUA authorized guide approved by the National Park Service to operate in the Everglades National Park including the Flamingo area. I get great enjoyment out of helping people catch their fish of a life time or teaching them how to be a better fisherman. I work great with families and children as well as hard core anglers.
