Fishizzle Sportfishing Charters

Fishizzle Sportfishing Charters offers you a relaxing and fun day of fishing in Key West, Florida. Together with Captain Todd Ermisch and his crew, you’ll go nearshore and offshore and explore Key West’s rich waters along with reefs and wrecks searching for a fine catch. Just pick a day for your next sea adventure and hop aboard!

Your trip will start on a 42’ Stapleton offshore sport fishing boat that holds plenty of space for up to 6 guests. Thanks to its twin 350 HP Caterpillar engine and comprehensive navigation technology, the boat will quickly and safely take you to the fish. Its extensive fishing gear includes downriggers, outriggers, a fighting chair, and livewell. The boat’s various amenities also include accessibility to wheelchairs, a toilet, and an ice-box. To make your trip even more comfortable, a first mate will be on board to give you any help needed.

The grounds around Key West are an excellent source of prized fish. To name just some of the species you get to catch, there’s Great Barracuda, Blue Marlin, Cero Mackerel, and Mahi Mahi. You’ll target them on light and heavy tackle by deep sea and bottom fishing, trolling, and spinning. You’re free to either keep your catch or release it and children are welcome to join aboard.

Captain Todd provides you with all the fishing gear, licenses, bottled water, and he’ll also clean and fillet your catch for free. Just bring some food and your adventure can begin.

Come visit Fishizzle Sportfishing Charters and have a terrific time fishing!
