Explore the waters around Cudjoe Key, Florida and have lots of fishing fun together with Held Fast Charters. From the inshore and nearshore to the backcountry waters, there’s plenty to catch in this gorgeous area rich in marine life. Come aboard together with Captain Camden Mullis and have a beautiful day of fishing in Cudjoe Key!

You’ll be fishing from a 23’ Carolina Skiff flats boat that can accommodate up to 4 anglers. It runs on a 150 HP Yamaha engine, uses GPS and a fishfinder for navigation, and is equipped with a wireless trolling motor and a livewell.

The wide range of fish you can catch includes but isn’t limited to Great Barracuda, Mangrove Snapper, Red Grouper, Shark, Permit, Spanish Mackerel, and Jack Crevalle. To catch them, you’ll use bottom fishing, spinning, as well as fly fishing, all on light tackle. If you want, you’re free to keep all the fish you catch. If not, simply release it back into the water.

Your captain will provide you with all the fishing gear you’ll need, including that for fly fishing as well. He also covers you for fishing licenses and will clean and fillet your catch, so the only things you need to bring are your favorite snacks and drinks.

Come aboard with Held Fast Charters and have a great time fishing on the lovely waters of Cudjoe Key!

    Here in the Florida Keys, they hunt a species of lobster called Spiny Lobster. It hides in rocks, holes, reefs, and mangroves, and is a lot of fun to free dive for. At most locations, diving deep isn't necessary as you'll typically go only 6 to 10 feet down. For this trip, you must bring your own snorkeling equipment – mask, snorkel, fins, and rash guard. The captain can provide lobstering gear with advanced notice.
