Fishy Business Charters – Panga

Fishy Business Charters invites you on a fishing trip aboard their brand you 25’ Panga boat to experience Key West like a local. This charter is all about having fun while enjoying some serious hedonism at a sandbar or reeling in the hard fighting fish.

The 25’ Panga was newly built in 2017 with a 70 Yamaha engine that pushes this boat to a cruise around 26 knots and lets it draw 8 inches of water. This makes it perfect to drift the flats or go out to the reefs on a calm day. The vessel is fully equipped with the necessary USCG approved safety gear and electronics like a fishfinder and a GPS.

The Tarpon is teeming in this area and Fishy Business is uniquely equipped to provide excellent Tarpon fishing to groups of 4 anglers. Captain Eric will also take you Shark fishing, where you can expect an exciting fight between you and various species of local Shark. Alternatively, you can go to the inshore and nearshore waters where Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Barracuda, Snook, Grouper, Cobia, Bonefish, and Mutton Snapper can be found.

The fishing trips can comfortably accommodate four people, and if you are in a larger group of up to six people, Fishy Business Charters also offer island and sandbar tours and sunset cruises. The sandbars are popular spots where native Floridians like to chill and soak up the sun, and now you can make like a native, too!

Your fishing trip will include all the fishing gear you need such as rods, reels, tackle, baits, a fishing license, and an experienced guide. Once your trip is over, Captain Eric can clean and fillet your catch so you can take it home for a nice dinner. Make sure you bring a cooler to transport the fish home safely in.

Now, simply book a trip to your liking, get your group together, and start counting down the days until your next angling adventure!

I grew up fishing for Walleye and Perch in Lake Erie and enjoyed being on the water so much then, that I figured ocean fishing would be even better, and it is! I enjoy most types of fishing techniques, however, high-speed jigging and fly fishing are the top 2 in my book.
