Cast your fishing memories through Hook’dLīf Charters on the fantabulous Key’dUp with CaptnKetti in the Florida Keys!  Hook’dLīf Charters may be the newbie in Islamorada, but the combined experience of the 25 year young BlackFin along with CaptnKetti’s 13 years of water time (9 of those years saltwater fishing) will demonstrate old school numbers one charter at a time! 

The main goals of Hook’dLīf Charters are that the customer is having a great time, safe, relaxed & reelin’ in plenty of keepers to take home!

The Key’dUp is a 1997 BlackFin Cruise offshore fishing boat with twin Yanmar 420s turbos & a marlin tower.  There is an open area above the cabin that is comfortable & roomy to relax on the rides out & back in.  With a proud 14’ 5” beam, she offers plenty of fighting room in the cockpit!  She is sporting a new stereo for you to Blu-tooth your favorite tunes.  Also, for even further comfort there is air conditioning in the cabin!

We offer offshore, early evening, half day, 3/4 day, full day, xtreme full day, tournament, reef & custom charters!

Had a great time with Kenly! Got a nice dolphin , two kingfish and a sailfish. Beautiful keys weather and good company. Highly recommend her if you want a real fishing experience without being pressured into getting a garbage fish mounted and treated like a tourist.
Highly recommended!!
