Captain Pete Jacobsen 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 Capt. Pete. Families and children are most welcome, as he loves to teach them about fishing and sharing his vast knowledge. The captain also welcomes beginners and seasoned anglers.

Capt. Pete will take you fishing on a 34-foot Crusader Downeast sportfishing boat. It is powered by one 375 HP Caterpillar engine, 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, and a shower.

The charter 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.

Each trip 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!
