Matt Murray

Member since October 2016

Key Largo, United States

Background
Both Captain Matt Murray's father and grandfather were fishermen, making Matt the third generation in his family to take up the profession. Growing up in a coastal community, becoming a Captain was a natural progression for Matt, who started working on boats at an early age and rose right up through the ranks from a cook on an 80 ft boat to a captain on his own sportfishing vessel. His extensive experience on the water includes being a parasail operator, fishing commercially, running snorkeling, diving, and eco tours, and being a private yacht captain. Having moved to Key Largo in 2013, he has now accomplished his dream of operating his own fishing charter. And where did he get the inspiration for his company's name? From the middle name of his own daughter.
Techniques
My fishing style is laidback and easy going. But when we get around fish it's business as usual!

Captain Mike and mate Justin were great. We caught some nice fish.  They made the best of a tough calm day.

Awesome trip with Matt and Justin! Caught two good size nurse sharks. It was definately a rush. These guys are fun, knowledgeable and easy going. Looking forward to going after more fish on our next trip!

We (my wife and I) had a great day on the water with Captain Dallas and Matt. They were a good team and always attentive. We caught several Tuna and Mahi and some Mutton Snapper. But our big catch of the day was a sailfish. It was my fist and was such a thrill. It was a long hard fight but Matt & Dallas were great talking me through the catch. I highly recommend their charter. We will definitely be back.

Captain Matt and mate Justin were fantastic on this trip. They were the perfect host and were knowledgeable and resourceful allowing the whole family to have a great fishing experience despite quite rough conditions offshore. And we caught lots of fish too! Highly recommended.

Captain Matt and Crewmate Justin were the ultimate professionals both on land and at sea. They made our family feel like their family and I highly recommend this charter for whatever time frame an individual may choise!

Matt and Justin were awesome! They were very good with our two boys, and put us on fish that we would all have fun catching! However, we ended up finishing our trip early because most of us were sea sick! I would definitely recommend taking Dramamine before you go, and we would definitely book with them again!

We caught a large variety of fish, twelve in all, and had a lot of fun.  Both captains were very friendly, professional and accommodating.  If we weren’t catching in a particular place they took us somewhere else.  They were very knowledgeable about what we could keep and what we couldn’t.  It sucked that we had to release the black grouper because they weren’t in season but they were fun to catch.  We also appreciated the fact that their speech was clean of foul language.

We had an amazing time! Captain Matt and Paul were professional and friendly. They listened to what we wanted and we learned so much from them. The boat was well equipped and the sea just wonderful! We caught gorgeous and tasty fish! Thanks so much!

Great guys to fish with. Very hard working and knowledgeable. My son wanted to catch a shark and they even extended the trip a bit to try to catch one. Highly recommend fishing with Matt.
