Fishy Business Charters

951 Caroline Street
Key West FL, United States

Fishy Business Charters offer amazing Inshore and Offshore trips to suit any taste, from a quick 3 hours hunting Tarpon and Sharks along the beachfront to a 10 hour marathon session offshore doing battle with huge Sailfish, Swordfish and Tuna, you will be sure to find the trip - and with any luck the fish - you are after.

The 31 ft Yellowfin center console is a serious fishing machine. Powered by twin 400 HP Yamaha engines, it has a maximum cruising speed of 42 knots, making sure you get to the best fishing spots as soon as possible. The boat also comes fully-rigged with GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, and a live bait tank. She also comes stocked with everything you will need for a full day’s fishing, including a selection of lures, rods and reels, licences for all on board, and even has a head on board for the longer fishing marathons. Captain Eric will also clean and fillet anything you want to take home free of charge.

Captain Eric has been fishing since he was a child, and loves nothing more than helping others land a prize catch, and he and his experienced first mate do everything they can to make sure that happens on each trip. Captain Eric believes in a customer-first attitude and will do all he can to make your trip with him one of the best you’ll ever have!

Grew up fishing walleye and perch in Lake Erie and enjoyed being on the water so much then, that I figured ocean fishing would be even better and it is!
