Background
I have been fishing for 50 years since the age of 6. I clearly remember that first bluegill I pulled from Hinkley Lake in Ohio with a redworm on my grandfather's fiberglass, state of the art, fly rod. My love for the water came from my dad who bought his first boat at 14. Since then I have done my time chasing anything that swims recreationally and in tournaments. My first trip to the KEYS from Ohio tied a bind that has only gotten tighter over the past 35 ,years. I have owned many boats including 6 in the Keys. The Pathfinder 2200TE is a fish stalking and catching machine. She is my latest baby and will be operated on a day to day basis by Captain Alex Rafice. An.extremely talented fisherman with a great desire to learn every day. His strong and honest work ethic along with his desire to share his knowledge and appreciation for the pristine waters and beauty of the Keys will make a day on the water with Alex, the trip of a lifetime.

It was awesome!  Much more than I could have expected.  I would highly recommend it and come back again myself.

It was our first time ,we didn’t catch as many fish as we expected but it wasn’t the best day.The captain did his best ,he was very nice even though he couldn’t understand most of the things we said (bad English) but my son enjoyed it and that’s all that matters.

Alex was an awesome captain, he worked super hard to get us on fish after a slow start. You could hear others on the radio getting nothing and Alex got us the fish after trying several spots we got on the fish.
