We were reef fishing and drift fishing over recks. We caught lots of fish and would highly recommend this trip to anyone who goes to Key West!

This was a great fishing experience. We ran about 40 miles west, and caught many red grouper. Then caught a 400# Goliath, a fish of a lifetime! I had two 12 y/o with me (one had never fished offshore before) and Brad was very helpful with them. Overall a great experience, comfortable boat, very nice marina. Brad cleaned all the fish for us, and we got to take em home ! We will call him again next time we’re in key west. He is very knowledgeable about fishing in general, and especially the area.
