Capt. Conch Charters

Member since March 2016

Key West, United States

Background
I was born and raised in Key West, and started fishing with my grandfather at the tender age of 8 years old. My grandfather taught me how to fish, and instilled in me a great love and respect for the ocean. As I grew I knew that this is what I wanted to do with my life. As soon as I was able to shake my parents notion that one day I would head off to college, I began to fish in earnest. I started in the commercial industry trapping, diving, and hand lining. Though I enjoyed that life immensely I also enjoy showing people a good time, and showing off my craft. which led me into the charter boat industry. I went from first mate to owner of 4 charter boats at historical charterboat row. I have learned from the best in the industry, and have passed my knowledge onto my crews. I believe that all fishermen are show offs. They know that it is not easy to go fishing and actually catch fish, and that's what they do. Come on out and hang with our showoffs, I promise you will be entertained.

We had a great time with John and Jerry.  Both were extremely nice and helpful.  We caught a lot of fish (mackrel, snapper).  Jerry cleaned and filleted the fish for us.  There’s several restaurants that will cook the fish for you.  Highly recommend!

Had an awesome experience with Capt Conch Charters today . The crew, Capt Gary and first mate John were exceptional !! They know the waters and knew exactly where to go to get the bites .The ocean was rough today but we got a good catch and got some huge Mahi Mahi which John filleted for us and we took it to a local restaurant to get it blackened and grilled for dinner. .My son caught a 4 foot barracuda which we released . That was exciting. I would definitely recommend them and use them for future runs.

The men worked hard to get fish in the box on our trip December 27, ‘17. we went home with a nice cooler full of Mahi and Yellow Tail. Saw numerous Grooper but they refused everything we offered them.
They were also very helpful in assisting me move about the boat due to my bum knee.
I had originally booked a trip on a different boat,
but the evening before the trip, the captain called to cancel due to mechanical problem. Fishingbooker was able to help me book at the last minute,  and I am very please with the entire experience.

Went for a half day shared charter. 4 persons + crew, so plenty of space. Everybody got fish. I think we must have been the best catching boat of the day. Very nice crew, the ships mate Magnus was very efficient and also shared his fishing experience. We brought home some high quality fish for dinner - which we prepared ourselves at the hotel.
The fishing boat was great - 4 swivel chairs. And big enough to cope with the waves.
I would definitely choose this company again for my next trip.
