Meridian Charters invites you on a fishing trip around the waters of Key West. Here the fisheries are productive throughout the year and you can get a variety of species. Captain John will take you and your friends out on the water and help you land your dream catch.

Meridian Charters can take you fishing around the reefs, wrecks or straight offshore for some fine game fish hunt. Depending on what’s biting at the moment and what you want to get, Captain John can take you after Amberjack, Snapper, Grouper, Mackerel, Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and maybe even some Sailfish.

You will be fishing from a 32’ Stamas Express that is powered by two 240 HP Yanmar engines. The boat can take up to six anglers and has enough room for comfortable fishing. She’s fitted with GPS and a fishfinder, has a live bait well, and features outriggers. There is a private toilet onboard, which is especially important if you’re coming with kids. The boat has many rod holders and all the fishing gear you may need on your trip. The boat also carries the required safety gear. With plenty of shade and comfortable seating, the vessel is a genuine family boat.

Fishing trips aboard Meridian Charters will see you fishing up to 10 miles during spring and winter. In summer times, you can go as far as up to 25 miles, looking for Mahi and other game fish swimming around.

Captain John is born and raised in Key West. He’s been fishing his whole life and knows how these fisheries tick. His expertise will help you have a blast on the water.

You should bring food and beverages. There is water and ice onboard, with plenty of cooler space. Put on sun block, bring a cap, sunglasses, and sea sickness medication in case you might need it. And, with all the fish swimming around here you’ll definitely want to bring a camera to get a good shot.

Very windy but John still put us on fish. Great captain and great attitude will definitely go with him again.
