On this 11-hour adventure, Captain Brad will help you catch some trophy-sized fish, including Dorado (Mahi Mahi), Blue Marlin, Red Snapper, Striped Marlin, White Marlin, and Sailfish. You’ll want to stretch out before this trip - some of these guys will put up one hell of a fight!
You’ll be fishing aboard Capt. Brad’s 43-foot sportfisher which is equipped with a large fishing cockpit, a functioning Tuna Tower, and an extra-large live well capacity. On this trip, Captain Brad emphasizes light tackle but is more than happy to accommodate for live bait slow trolling, reef & wreck, dead bait trolling, kite fishing, and blue water fly fishing.
Southpaw Fishing Charters will provide Penn, Shimano, and Daiwa rods, reels, tackle, and lures. They will also provide live bait, drinks, fly fishing equipment, and fish cleaning/filleting at no extra cost. A first mate will be on board to help you at all times. Make sure you bring a hat, sunscreen, and some food/snacks for the day!
Test your skills and strength and fill the boat on what promises to be an exhilarating day with Captain Brad and Southpaw Fishing Charters!
Captain Brad was born and raised in Massachusetts. After graduating from Princeton University, he moved to the Florida Keys in 1979 to pursue a fishing career. For many years Capt. Brad operated corporately owned sportfishers which were available for charter on the Caribbean fishing circuit. This included winters in the Fl Keys, spring on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, and summer in St. Thomas USVI. Brad also spent 5 fall seasons fishing Venezuela. It's safe to say he knows the Caribbean inside and out!...Read More
In 2002 Brad decided to go into business for himself and contracted legendary Key West boat builder Claude Torres for the construction of a 43’ charter boat, which would be home ported in Key West. Seventeen years later Capt. Brad continues to run his daily charter service out of Key West, while also traveling to fish more exotic locales. His 43' vessel remains by common consensus among Key West’s best designed fishing boats.
Now in his 38th year as a charter Captain, Brad has fished from Nova Scotia to South America, and as far afield as Australia. He's gone just about everywhere and fished for just about everything, but to him, the Keys are home.
Captain Brad and Mick were first class. The boat and equipment were impeccably kept. Their attention to detail was noticed and appreciated. Mick was the hardest working mate I’ve ever been around. We did two trips with them. The first was a 4-Hour reef trip ...Read More where I brought my three sons and two of their girlfriends for the afternoon. We caught a nice variety of fish and everyone had a great time. The second trip was an 8-hour offshore on Saturday for me and my three sons. We had a great day. We again caught a nice amount of Mahi, Tuna and my youngest son even caught a Sailfish! It was a day I will never forget as a father and when I get back to Key West, The Southpaw will be our boat!
Capt. Brad and his mate Mick were excellent. The September bite off key west for Mahi isn’t the best but they got us on the fish and we had a great time. Multiple double, triple and even a few quad headers in that short span. Tossed a few back due ...Read More to size but had a great time regardless. Would 100% recommend using this boat and crew. Boat is newer and in excellent shape, plenty of room and nice and wide open for everyone to fish at the same time.
My wife and I had a great time fishing with Capt. Brad and 1st mate Mick. The fishing wasn’t spectacular but we still ended up landing 8 tunas and a whole mess of Mahi! When we had a fish on Mick was on it, he did a great job and ...Read More really knew his stuff. The boat was spotless, well maintained, very roomy, and plenty of shade to get out of the blazing sun when the fish weren’t biting. Highly recommend.
