On this trip, you'll be going after several different species at the reef or wrecks : from yellowtail snapper, mackerel, yellow jack, African pompano , groupers. Or inshore for snook , tarpon , mangrove snapper or Goliath grouper, lemon sharks and more .
You'll be fishing from Captain Chris' 26' TwinVee catamaran—a fast, comfortable, and extremely stable boat that's great for this area. She's packing twin Suzuki engines with a combined 300 horsepower, so you'll get off the dock in no time. The boat also features a 50-gallon livewell for bait, a hardtop to keep you out of the sun, and a freshwater rinse if you decide to take a swim! Captain Chris will bring everything else you need for a blue-ribbon day, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. All you need is sunscreen, a hat, and a pair of polarized sunglasses.
Weather depending, we will fish reefs, wrecks, or on rough days inshore for several different types of species. We mainly target edible species and will clean your fish , and even offer a pack and shipping service if you like. We can also recommend several places that offer cook your catch options or can also set you up a private chef dinner aswell.
Captain Chris has spent nearly twenty years fishing all over South Florida, from Fort Myers to the Everglades, and has been fishing the Keys for the last ten years . He got his passion from his grandfather, Papa Jack, who brought him up fishing out of Mamaroneck Harbor in New York. Captain Chris is also a Culinary Trained Chef (C.I.A Alumni), and spent many years working on super yachts, traveling all over the Caribbean and East Coast, cooking and fishing along the way. He loves to share his passion for the ocean and great food with his clients!...Read More

My wife and I had an awesome time with Capt. Chris and First-mate Mike. The boat and tackle are super nice and well maintained. They had plenty of food and drinks for us. As crazy as this sounds we saw a 47’ sperm whale carcass being eaten by three 12-14’ ...Read More tiger sharks, it was unbelievable. We had an absolute blast. It was a tough day on the water but we still managed to catch a few. #nevergiveup #onemorepass #onemorecast
