All Water Charters

Peninsular Ave
Key West FL, United States

All Water Charters provide primarily backcountry fishing experiences in the crystal clear waters of Key West, Florida. The charter is owned and operated by Captain Kyle Kelso who specializes in backcountry fishing, light reef fishing, fly fishing, and more. He is a Native Floridian and has ample experience fishing several different waterways throughout the state.

You will fish aboard his brand new 24 foot Skeeter Bay Boat, rigged for getting down to business and catching some serious fish. It is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine and has a capacity for 4 guests. The boat contains safety equipment and the latest electronics needed to make your trip a success.

Captain Kyle offers general fishing trips that other guides in Key West offer, but also tries to customize his charters, when possible, to suit the interests of every angler. He will happily teach you about the fish, fishing techniques and the importance of protecting the local fisheries in order to preserve them for the future generations. And he’ll take great photos of your adventure, too!

All Water Charters fishes the shallow waters for Barracuda, Snapper, Tarpon, Sharks, Permit, Jack Crevalle, Groupers, Cobia, Bonefish and other local species. Depending on the season, Captain Kyle will advise you which species you can expect to target. He will also provide all the fishing gear needed for the trip.

You are welcome to bring food and drinks aboard for the day, just make sure you leave out bananas, spray lotions and excessive hard alcohol. However, do make sure you bring sunglasses, a hat, protective clothing and lots of positive vibes. You will be able to store your food and drinks in a cooler, and there is also a fish cooler that can hold the fish you intend to eat for dinner.

Kyle knows some good spots. In a couple of hours, I caught 30 - 40 fish (stopped counting pretty fast) and 6 or 7 different species - from Lane Snapper to a 150 lbs Lemon Shark (not landed - released at the side of the boat).  I had hits on almost every cast I made. The Backcountry is beautiful with a huge variety of wildlife to enjoy.
