FinnAddict is a fishing charter with a goal, and that goal is to make sure that every guest has a wonderful and memorable experience with them, and to catch fish! The charter is run by Captain Joel Warrick who is a true fish enthusiast with 8 years of experience operating a charter, and a lifelong fishing experience. He has been fishing since he was a little boy and loves teaching kids to cast too. This job has been a dream of his, for as long as he can remember; looking up to charter captains who helped him reel in fish and wanting to be just like them.

You will fish aboard his 34 foot Sea Vee center console boat, which was originally built in 2001 and restored in 2015. It is powered by a 480 HP Cummins Diesel engine with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots, and a capacity for 6 guests. The boat has all the electronics needed such as a GPS, a VHF radio for communication with the USCG, and a fishfinder. It also contains safety equipment in form of life jackets, flares, a CPR-trained crew and other necessities. Its prominent feature is the flybridge, which is ideal for sight fishing.

FinnAddict fishes the Florida Keys nearshore and offshore, as this is one of the most diverse fishing hot-spots in the world with over 100 types of fish to catch. Species most commonly caught are Mutton and Mangrove Snapper, Cobia, Wahoo, Tarpon, Tripletail, Albacore Tuna, Sailfish, King Mackerel, Black Grouper, Mahi Mahi and Amberjack. Captain Joel will provide rods, reels, tackle, live bait and lures, and a fishing licence. He will also clean and fillet your catch when you return to the shore, so make sure you bring some bags! This is a family and child friendly charter where you are welcome to bring kids along and watch their faces light up as they reel in their catch!

I have been fishing ever since I was old enough to hold a rod and reel. My father always made sure that we were able to go fishing together and with good friends. Sometimes we would take a charter in unfamiliar areas. From an early age I always looked up to those charter fishermen who worked hard to get us on the fish. That's why I do it because I have felt the rush of having a big fish on the line and I want to make that possible for others and insure that they have a great trip, make memories and new friends.
