Hold Tight Charters Trips

On this trip, you'll launch out of Key Largo with Captain Alex and chase down some iconic Florida sportfish! This is the "real deal" Keys fishing experience. The trip will include exploring the endless maze of backcountry inlets and mangroves channels that make up Everglades National Park. The backcountry species you'll be targeting include Snook, Redfish, Speckled Trout, a variety of Snappers, and even Gag or Goliath Grouper! If sportfishing is more your flavor, you can stay closer to the Keys to fish the productive grass flats where Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit like to hang out. Tarpon are obviously a huge draw in the Keys, but stalking Bonefish and Permit across flats is equally exciting! There's a reason these species are legendary among sport fishermen across the globe. So whether you're looking to chase down the "Saltwater Grand Slam" with artificials, or hammer the backcountry with live bait, Captain Alex can cater to what you want! He'll also provide all the gear, so you're set up for success. All you need to bring are some snacks and drinks, some sun protection, and polarized sunglasses—they help tremendously when sight fishing! Read More

Captain Alex was an expert and knew exactly where the fish were. We caught tons of fish and even a huge grouper and snook. Boat was very nice and we had a great time.

My wife and I had an excellent experience with Captain Alex. We were looking for a half day trip and booked with him not having any personal reference from someone we knew. What a good luck of the draw. He not only put us on fish but was continually working bait and rigs. Couple that with his good nature and pleasant conversation and you have a great day on the water. We will definitely be booking him for our next trip in Key Largo.

Captain Alex was a great guide. It was our first trip to the keys and wanted to do some inshore fishing. We met in Key largo and headed over to the Everglades park. we saw all kinds of wildlife. My wife enjoyed that Alex showed us the sights as well as put us on the fish. My son hooks a large grouper and a large Snook. He was not able to get ether to the boat, but the fight was great. Alex kept changing up species until we were able to land some spotted trout. what a great day with Alex. When we come back to the keys we will book again with Alex

We booked a half day charter with Alex. It was me, my husband and our 17 year old son. We had a fantastic time. We wanted to catch fish we would eat. Alex knew exactly where to take us. It was a beautiful boat ride and he knew exactly where the mangrove snapper were biting. We caught our limit and had a great time. But not only was the fishing great, Alex is SUPER nice guy. Just a great outgoing personality, answered all of our questions and was was professional but fun too. We had a great day. I would give him 6 stars if I could. We will definitely book with him again when we come back to the keys.

First Rate Awesome Florida Keys Fishing Experience of a Lifetime with Captain Alex. Top of the line Boat, Equipment, Gear and plenty of live bait for successful Fishing with Captain Alex: He took us right to the fish with no lost time, and catching fish throughout the day. He was so knowledgeable about moving on throughout the day to hot spots and we kept on catching catching catching. So much fun. He also had an ice chest prepared for the weather. Speaking about weather is was a raining departure, but within minutes we had sunshine the rest of the day. This is a captain with experience, knowledge and a great human being. Alex is so customer driven, personable and always clam with resolve. He truly loves what he is doing. We can’t wait to come back to Florida from CA. with our family and join Captain Alex in the near future. Alex filleted our fish and a local restaurant cooked it for us. The best ever! Thank you once again Captain Alex.

He put us on the fish, was very knowledgeable, caught my first Snook and it was a monster. We discussed what we wanted to target the day before the trip and Captain Alex came through. Caught ourselves dinner and a few snook! Was a great time, I have been out with guides that just don’t seem to put any effort into finding or catching fish. This guy is a hard working, fishing machine and I would recommend them to anyone! Only regret is that we should’ve done a full day charter with him! Book an 8 hour day and tip the man!
