Fishing out of Key Largo, Just Ducky Charters is just a short ride away from Florida Keys’ amazing coral reefs! This makes it the perfect choice for small groups of friends or families who want to enjoy a fun day fishing in the area’s clear blue waters. Captain Kevin Mitchell is an experienced angler who’ll put you on the fish right from the start.

You will spend your trip aboard a 28’ Grady White center console boat that is powered by brand new twin 300 HP Yamaha engines to take you out to the reefs safely and fast. With a T-Top for shade and plenty of seating on board, the boat holds up to 6 anglers in comfort. It also features a huge, comfortable bow area perfect for catching some Rays if you want a break from fishing.

Capt. Kevin specializes in fishing the local patch reefs, which is an enjoyable activity for family groups. Half day trips are perfect for those who want to catch fish but don’t want to spend a whole day on the water, and kids and adults alike love the colorful species, consistent action, and tasty catches that patch reef fishing entails.

You will travel out into the beautiful blue shallow waters, where you will anchor the boat, chum the water, and watch as the fish come out to feed. All this will take place in waters that are anything from 6’ to 30’ deep, where you could be in with a chance of catching a huge range of fish.

Expect to test your skills against fish like Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper, Porgy, Jack, Hogfish, Mackerel, Barracuda, and Shark. With almost non-stop action ahead of you, your trip will be both relaxing and enjoyable for the whole family.

Everything you will need for fishing is included in the price, so all you should bring is sunglasses, suntan lotion, hat, camera, drinks, and any snacks!

    We want our customers to see the best that Key Largo has to offer. That is why we stay away from the reefs that the commercial boats take you to. Don’t opt for the typical cheap cattle boat trips that take you to shallow, abused, small patch reefs with murky water. We want you to know that there are reefs off Key Largo that rival the best in the world! We offer trips to reefs “off the beaten path” that are teeming with sea life, beautiful corals, in crystal clear water. Flexible departure time.

Captain Kevin holds a 50 Ton USCG approved license. He started out by working as a mate on various offshore and reef fishing vessels. Drawn by the allure of the Back Country, he bought a flats skiff and pursued the wonders of the Florida Bay. Captain Kevin now spends most of his “water” time, patch reef fishing for Hog fish, or immersing himself in the crystal clear waters that are our Upper Florida Keys reefs.
