Rampage Fishing Charters offers exciting adventures out of Key West, Florida. If you are looking for the hottest spots to find the widest array of fish, land the big ones, and have an action-packed day – Captain Barry and his First Mate are the best choice.

Enjoy your trip with Captain Barry aboard a 40’ Pacemaker boat, powered by twin 250 HP Cummins engines. The vessel has a maximum cruising speed of 15 knots and provides a comfortable fishing space for up to six anglers. Its navigational electronics include a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. The vessel is wheelchair accessible and fully equipped with all the necessary safety features, as well as a toilet. A flybridge is fitted to aid your search for the fish and an ice-box will keep the catch fresh during the day.

On your day out with Rampage Fishing Charters, you will be trolling for about 15 minutes out to the fishing spot, where you will get anchored and drop a chum bag. You will be fishing the nearshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico or the Western Channel reefs, trolling, bottom fishing, and spinning for Yellowtail Amberjack, Barracuda, Jack Crevalle, Yellowtail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Grouper, Porgy, Blacktip Shark, and who knows what else?

A trip with Rampage Fishing Charters comes inclusive with all Penn rods, reels, and tackle. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted at the end of the trip for a ride home, where you could taste it for dinner later. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about the licenses: the Captain will provide them for you and your group. Feel free to bring your own food and drinks with you if you want.

Now all you have to do is get your group together, find the next open day that works for you, and pencil-in your next fishing adventure today!
