    The time is 7pm to 11pm. We fish over the 3 offshore reefs, wrecks and other sunken debris. Bottom fish are great night feeders. Snappers such as yellowtail, mangroves, vermillions, lanes all are out and along with them the grunts, triggerfish also. Sharks tend to be good night biters. Almost all species do feed except Bonito. Even with them there is always the exception to the rule.

Although Captain Allen Moudy grew up in Pennsylvania, his family would often vacation in Florida where he spent time fishing the North Key West waters. They eventually moved down South in the early ‘70s when his parents bought the Flamingo business, which Capt. Allen now operates. With two boats in the fleet, Capt. Allen usually runs sportfishing charters aboard the “Quiet Squaw”, while he alternates running the “Flamingo” with other experienced captains in his crew. Capt. Allen has spent time fishing various locations, including the islands of the Bahamas and as far down as Bonaire, and has also contributed to articles that were featured in ‘Sport Fishing’ magazine.
