Cowboy Charters - Cowboy
One of our top picks in Key West . Captain Mark Baumgarten of Cowboy Charters has been guiding people to fish in the Florida Keys since 1995. These waters are famous worldwide for their unusually diverse game fishery, and with two fully equipped Hatteras boats at his disposal, he has an offshore fishing trip to suit every type of angler.
Cowboy is the smaller of the company’s two boats. A well-appointed 36 ft Hatteras sportfishing yacht, this fully air-conditioned vessel makes for a comfortable ride for groups of up to six people plus the crew. The boat features a head, as well as outriggers, downriggers, and a fighting chair for a professional and comfortable fishing experience. With a large deck area, everyone will be able to get involved in the offshore action.
Captain Mark has been fishing professionally for over 40 years, and he is well known for his ability to put his guests on fish, whatever their prior experience. He and his first mate will guide you across the offshore waters, providing all the know-how and equipment you need to catch species such as Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, and many more. Cowboy and Cowgirl Charters’ trips usually involve a combination of trolling and bottom fishing, and you may be able to try kite fishing for Sailfish and other exciting pelagic fish when conditions allow.

Tom and Ricky were excellent as Captain and Mate. They made the trip fun and were very helpful and shared their knowledge. We trolled for a while and didn’t catch a whole lot but then my son ended up reeling in a 300 lb. 9 foot hammerhead shark! That was so exciting for all of us! Didn’t get a picture of him out of the water because the line broke just as Ricky was pulling him up beside the boat. Bummer. We did end up bringing some fish home as well. The only complaint I would have were the broken chairs that made it difficult to reel in a big fish. My 18 yr old son kept sliding forward and had trouble staying in the chair. But Ricky and my older son both helped him. Overall it was an awesome day!
