Somerset Sportfishing Charters invites you on a first class fishing adventure in the offshore waters of Key Largo, Florida. This area has an abundance of fish you will be able to chase and target with an expert crew led by Captain Pete Jacobsen. Families and children are most welcome, as Captain Pete loves to teach them about fishing and sharing his vast knowledge. He also welcomes beginners and season anglers.

Captain Pete will take you fishing on a 40-foot Bertram Trojan saltwater fishing boat. It is powered by two 375 HP Caterpillar engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 18 knots. The vessel is air-conditioned and provides a comfortable platform to hunt and capture South Atlantic game fish. You will find all the safety and fish finding technology on board, as well as a flybridge, a toilet, a shower and a kitchen.

Somerset Sportfishing Charters offers traditional nearshore and offshore fishing in the Florida Keys for species such as Mutton Snapper, Red and Black Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, Red Snapper, Skipjack Tuna, and more local species. The crew are very experienced in targeting offshore game fish and will provide you with expert advice on how you can catch them, too, so pay close attention and you’ll be reeling in throughout the trip.

Your charter will include rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, and a fishing license. So all you have to bring is something to eat and drink for the day, and enjoy your adventure! You will have an option to book a half day or a full day trip depending on the fish you want to catch, so take your pick and get ready to reel!

My son and I cam down to Key largo for my Birthday week 7/24/2017 to fish for Mahi Mahi and we smoked the Mahi Mahi. we came for one day of fishing and had so much fun on the first day we booked again with these guys for a second full day of fishing and we also managed to get in a little Skeet shooting. Pete and Craig made sure to put every effort into us catching our targeted fish and it worked out flawlessly. Anyone looking for good fun filled day of going after your fish of choice then choose “Somerset Sportfishing Charters” these guys rock.

I can’t really review the whole fishing experience we had people on board that got see sick so we had to come in early before we arrived at the fishing grounds. Captain Mike did keep us updated on the weather and swells prior to our departure.
