Fish Key West - The Outcast

Based in the stunning region of Florida, the Fish Key West invites you on a fishing trip to remember. A variety of fish to catch both far out and closer to the shore, a fleet of stable all-round boats and an almost ever-running season, and you get what Fish Key West charters are all about.

Here you will find a team of fishermen with many years of experience. They have fished the Keys and other hot spots around Florida, specializing in fly fishing, bottom fishing, game fishing, and producing pure magic on the water. Whether it’s Permit, Tarpon, Snapper, Grouper, or Tuna, Mahi, Sailfish, these guys have the skills and moves to help you land your dream catch.

‘Outcast’ is a 29’ Whitewater boat. A pride of the fleet, ‘Outcast’ has reeled in numerous specimens of Florida marine life. She also holds a record day of 1,232 lbs of Yellowtail Snapper. Imagine that! But, there are many more species to get here. You could be fishing inshore or if you’re more experienced, get further out for an adrenaline-pumping action. The boat is powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines. She can take up to six people and get them a smooth, dry ride to the fishing grounds.

‘Outcast’ features a V-hull, T-top for shade and comfort, and a huge live bait well. Seating is comfortable and the ride is suitable for minors as well. There is a nice bathroom onboard. The vessel is equipped with top electronics. This means 10’ Garmin color chart plotter, 2 VHF radios,  Furuno 10 inch color Bottom Machine, Furuno GP 31 GPS, CD player, & cell phone.

The crew will provide the fishing gear, tackle, bait, license, and ice. You should bring food and drinks, as well as a camera, sunglasses, sunblock, comfortable clothes, and non-marking shoes. If you want a reliable boat with a reliable captain, then ‘Outcast’ is the boat to board. For other vessels in the fleet, check out Capt. Damon’s profile below and click on his name.

Capt. Damon Santelli runs fishing trips out of the rich Florida Keys. Damon spent a decade working as a commercial fisherman in the Key West. During that time, he learnt a great deal about fishing, using rod and reel to make a living. Having earned a lot of experience and skills, Capt. Damon went on to become a captain of his own charter. He now has a fleet of boats and takes out numerous customers each year. The decision to leave behind his office career and become a captain proved to be the right one. Capt. Damon is patient and likes taking both novice anglers and seasoned fishermen out on the water. Damon has landed many commercial fishing records, such as 1232 lbs of Yellowtail Snapper. You don't want to miss a trip with him. It's going to be pure action!
