Grey Ghost Charters

Peninsular Avenue
Key West FL, United States

Fishing the “skinny” waters of Key West is an experience that’s hard to reproduce anywhere else in the world. Combine that fact with the vast local experience of Jared Cyr and you have the recipe for a fantastic fishing excursion!

You’ll be fishing from his 18’ Beavertail Air flats boat. She’s fresh on the water in 2017 and comes outfitted with a 115 HP Mercury Pro XS outboard engine. Her shallow draft and small but powerful engine allow the boat to reach a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. Once you glide to your chosen fishing grounds Capt. Jared will expertly pole you into place – even the spookiest fish won’t hear you coming.

You’ll hit the flats of Key West in full force – whether it’s wading or from a boat. Bring your best fishing buddy with you to share this unique experience with, the boat can handle 2 anglers and the captain.

If you’re looking for a challenging fight, you’ve come to the right place – you can target Cobia, Jack Crevalle, and Permit. The A-listers of Florida’s shallow fishing are also on the catch list, like Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, and Snook. Trophy anglers can look forward to hooking up Tarpon after dark – a good chance at landing that once-in-a-lifetime catch!

Capt. Jared will provide you with all the necessary spinning and fly tackle but you’re free to bring your favorite rod if you wish. Grey Ghost Charters practices catch-and-release, so other anglers can have the same fun you will.

Stop dreaming of experiencing the majestic flats. Book a trip today and cast off on a trip of a lifetime!

Had a fantastic time fishing with Capt Jared Cyr.  We met up early, and headed out to fish West of Key West, somewhat close to the Marquesas, on some beautiful flats.  His knowledge of the area, skill at handling the boat, and well honed efforts to scan for fish was phenomenal.  A 4th generation conch - it was very apparent he was at home out there.  Definitely enjoyed meeting him and fishing with him, and hope to do it again.  The bonefish caught we’re not so delighted!  Highly recommend Capt Jared should anyone want to do some flats hunting for bonefish, permit, etc.
