Captain
Charles Maloney

Member since June 2021 Key Largo, United States
Background
After fishing in the Keys for 22 years, Captain Charles decided to make it his home fishing out in the ocean. You don't know what you might catch but it's always fun and putting people on the fish is exciting. The captain is also a chef who has worked professionally and he started a food truck barbecue business. He loves to cook and he offers his guests a catch-and-cook option. While his son and first mate Jay is cleaning the boat, Captain Charles will clean your catch and cook it for you. Whether you like it grilled, blackened, or fried, you'll have freshly cooked fish delivered to your hotel, campground, or wherever you're staying! The captain would be grateful if you tipped the first mate because the young man works hard to keep the boat pristine for you. See you soon and tight lines!
Techniques
Captain Charles likes trolling, reef,wreck fishing, spearfishing, as well as snorkeling.
