Fish Key West takes you on a fishing trip around one of the most diverse fisheries in the world. The action is great year-round, both inshore and out on the open waters. Based in the Key West, the crew onboard ‘Coolwater II’ knows the hot spots and how the fish bite. These captains have spent hours and years on the local waters. If someone knows how to cater to both novice anglers and more experienced fishermen, it’s these guys.
‘Coolwater II’ is a versatile boat that can take on both inshore species and offshore game. She is a 33’ Sea Vee center console that can take up to six people. Powered by two 300 HP Yamaha engines, ‘Coolwater II’ can reach speeds of up to 45 knots. She features a hardtop with a lookout tower. The boat is fitted with top-notch electronics to help you find your prey. She stores all the gear you need, as well as tackle, bait, license, and ice. There is a bathroom onboard. ‘Coolwater II’ is a top choice whether you want to fish a tournament or hire a charter.
If you go on a full day trip, you could be fishing far offshore, all the way up to the 90-mile mark. Or stay inshore, and scout around the backcountry waters to land Tarpon. ‘Coolwater II’ can get you where you want, with speed and stability. It’s going to be a dry ride, packed with action. We fish anywhere from 3ft to 3000ft of water.
These trips can work with absolute beginners or full pros. Either way, the crew will help out so that you can have an enjoyable day on the water. Depending on the season, you can get Snapper, Grouper, Tarpon, Permit, Cobia, or more exotic fish, like Mahi, Sailfish, Kingfish, and more.
Pack a camera, sunglasses, a cap, sunblock, food, and drinks, and come along. If you can’t find a spot here, just scroll down and click on Capt. Damon’s name to see free spots on the rest of the fleet.
