Description

Fish Key West Florida utilizes a variety of different methods of fishing, depending on the time of year, the sea conditions, water and air temperature, currents and other factors. We fish anywhere from form 1 mile out for giant Tarpon to 90 miles out past the Dry Tortugas for a variety of exotic species; Sailfish, Mahi-mahi, Tuna, Sharks, Wahoo, Cobia, King Mackeral, Permit, Snapper and Grouper we catch them all.

The Coolcast does everything well. It’s not any one thing, as much as it is the combination of everything: the hull design, interior layout, and ergonomics. It handles big seas with ease. The ride is dry and comfortable. Everything is where it should be… it’s one of those rare fishing boats where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Given an overall length of 36 feet, the Coolcast can access some pretty shallow water. With the motors trimmed up she only draws 24”, and even less when on plane at speed.

Before becoming a full time charter captain, I was a commercial fisherman in Key West for 10 years. Making a living catching fish with rod and reel has given me experience which cannot be matched.

Captain Derek was very professional and very experienced. He made sure we all had a great time even though the weather conditions were the not the best. Captain Derek was very enjoyable to be a round and made sure there was never a dull moment. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to fish in key west

Great day, boat was in great shape… 30+ foot boat.  Left from the Hyatt, very convenient.  Capt. filleted fish, we cooked them fresh for lunch that day.  Capt. Derek had extensive knowledge of the good fishing spots, and was a great guide.

Let me start by saying Mr Yang did not fish with me it was my Capt Colin. Unfortunately we blew a lower unit on the way out, but we keep a spare $5000 lower unit. My Capt was able to come back in and we pulled the boat out at our local marina and within two hours we changed out the blown unit with our spare while mr yang and the other split charter group waited patiently. We were able to head back out and save the day and get the charter in while most companies would have just cancelled. Mr Yang did not speak English so I think the language barrier was part of the problem today as he did not understand what was going on. We pride ourselves on the effort we put in for each and every charter that fishes with our company.  The fishing can be slow at times but myself and everyone of my captains will always give 100% effort, thank you.
