Graceful Fishing Charters

Overseas Highway
Key Largo FL, United States

Fishing out of the beautiful Key Largo, Graceful Fishing Charters offer enjoyable reef/wreck and offshore fishing charters for the whole family. Whether you have been fishing or your life or this is your first time on the ocean, this family-friendly crew will show you a great time on the water.

Graceful Fishing Charters’ fishing machine is a 31’ Phoenix boat that has all the amenities you need for a deep sea sportfishing charter. The boat’s dual Yanmar engines will get you to the best fishing spots with plenty of time to fish. The boat features a toilet, and she also has a very spacious flybridge with room for everyone to sit and enjoy the view.

You can choose between fishing the nearshore reefs about seven miles from the coast, where the seas are usually calmer and you can catch a range of good eating fish, and travelling further offshore in search of Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, Marlin, and larger Groupers and Snappers. Whichever option you go for, Graceful Fishing Charters will provide you with all the gear you need to hook a fish to remember. Any legal fish you would like to take home with you at the end of the charter will be cleaned and filleted at the end of the trip at no extra charge (gratuities are greatly appreciated).

    This trip is good for first timers. It gets you use to the ocean and if you don't want to be out all day you can still catch some fish and be home in good time. You could catch species such as Kingfish, Sharks, Amberjack, and more and will be fishing about 10 miles offshore.

About the Captain

Matt Murray
Key Largo, Florida, United States
Member since October 2016
14
Both Captain Matt Murray's father and grandfather were fishermen, making Matt the third generation in his family to take up the profession. Growing up in a coastal community, becoming a Captain was a natural progression for Matt, who started working on boats at an early age and rose right up through the ranks from a cook on an 80 ft boat to a captain on his own sportfishing vessel. His extensive experience on the water includes being a parasail operator, fishing commercially, running snorkeling, diving, and eco tours, and being a private yacht captain. Having moved to Key Largo in 2013, he has now accomplished his dream of operating his own fishing charter. And where did he get the inspiration for his company's name? From the middle name of his own daughter.
