I have loved fishing my entire life.. I am from Long Island New York where I learned how to fish the northeast canyons. I became interested in the Florida Keys when I was in my late teens. As an adult I came every winter to learn how to fish here. I currently have been running fishing boats in the keys for almost 8 years.

The whole family went on the fishing adventure with Capt. Claude and First mate Joe.  The day started slow But they kept trying different techniques until we found the fish.  they worked hard to make sure we had a great time.  They were able to put us on Jack, Dolphin, Wahoo, Snapper, and triple tail!  They even cleaned a few of our catch for dinner.

I would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested.

Sincerely,

Scott

We got a slight late start due to traffic, but once we got going it was a wonderful time.  Caught snapper to eat for dinner, and my wife even brought a 6 foot nurse shark up to the boat!  The captain and mate were very knowledgeable, as well as personable.  Recommended if you make it to Islamorada!
