American Allegiance Charters

(3) In demand!

American Allegiance Charters offer customized lower Keys fishing charters to fit your schedule and desires. The charter is operated by Captain Harlan who has fished the local waters since the 80’s and knows that the fishing here depends on the tides and the weather more than anything else.

He will take you out on a 17 foot Trammell classic boat, originally built in 2014 and powered by 60 HP Suzuki engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. This boat is both speedy and safe, and contains all the navigational and safety equipment you might need. It also features an icebox where you’ll store your catch until your return to the shore.

American Allegiance Charters can take you to all the wrecks, reefs, flats, and even the offshore waters for a trip unrivaled by any other charters. You will chase big Wahoo, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, Mackerel, Cobia, Barracuda, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Trout, Grouper and the list goes on and on. The possibilities really are endless in this part of Florida.

You will feel safe knowing your Captain Harlan is a professional guide and a USCG 50 Ton licensed captain. He has led many anglers to their dream fish and is an exquisite woodworking craftsman who builds and sells skiffs. Captain Harlan will provide you with all the fishing gear including live baits, lures and even drinks for refreshment.

Once your trip is over, the catch can be cleaned and filleted for you so it can be taken home. Make sure you bring a cooler so you can transport it home safely.
