Her twin engine design makes her very maneuverable while fighting the pelagic species we target. She is an excellent fishing platform that offers a smooth comfortable ride as well as an air conditioned salon, clean head and quality, well maintained tackle as well as state of the art electronics.
Enjoy Key West Sport Fishing
According to the International Game Fish Association, more saltwater world records have been established in the Florida Keys than any other angling destination on the globe. The Keys are bordered by the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Straits of Florida on the other. Outside our reef, the water plunges to depths of 1,500 feet or more. Offering an abundance of catch options. Year around we target Mahi-Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish and Marlin. While targeting these pelagic species we often catch King Fish, Cero and Spanish Mackerel, Cobia Amber Jacks, Barracuda, Bonita, Sharks and more.
Key West Sport Fishing is a fun way to celebrate any occasion such as birthdays, anniversaries, bachelor parties, reunions or any time you want to treat yourself. So grab your fishing rod or use one our ours and come aboard. We have plenty of space for coolers, snacks and good memories. Once we get to the dock we can filet your catch while you kick back a few cold ones and look forward to the next trip! Afterwards share your stories and photos on our blog, FaceBook, TripAdvisor and Yelp pages. We look forward to fishing with you soon.

Best Charter Crew in Key West
This father son team is by far the best sportfishing charter in Key West. Or anywhere for that matter. I have never seen a captain and mate work so well together. The communication back and forth between the bridge and cockpit was amazing to watch. Together they are a well oiled fish catching machine! When you're in Key West you have to book a trip with Discretion Sportfishing.
