Hooked Up Charters invites you to explore the fishing opportunities in Key West, Florida. Enjoy your trip with a native guide and come back with an ice chest full of memories!

Step aboard the “Hooked Up Too,” a 34’ Hatteras offshore sportfishing boat. It was originally built in 1968 and was fully up hauled in 2017. Its twin 350 HP Cummins engines will power you to the hottest fishing grounds in the area, and the latest professional accessories and navigational electronics will save you time while searching for fish.

The boat can comfortably take up to 6 anglers, who will make good use of the flybridge and the fighting chair. Plus, there is a toilet on board – a much-needed thing when spending your day on the water.

From bottom fishing for King Mackerel, Snapper, and Grouper to offshore trips for Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi-Mahi, you can do it all. Captain Jimmy will put you on the fish and will teach you a technique or two. Fish with a local and see the difference!

Just as you depart from the Historic Charter Boat Row, you will soon find your hooks baited and your rods bending. All the necessary equipment is included in the charters’ rates, such as rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait. You will also be provided with a license and fish cleaning and filleting at the end of your adventure. Just bring something to eat and drink, and show up!

Book a trip with Hooked Up Charters and have a Floridian fishing adventure you won’t forget!
