Key West Florida
Fishing offers incredible catches all year, every season.
As the weather and the water temperature change in the Key
West waters, different species of fish inhabit the Florida
Keys waters. Water temperature is one of the most
important factors in determining what will be around when you
go charter fishing in Key West. Wind direction, wind speed and
tides are also key factors. With all this in mind, it is
best to call me or drop me an
and I will tell you what type of fish will most likely be
around at the time of your arrival in Key West, Florida.
I run light tackle fishing
charters. Seize the day is a 25' Contender center console,
new in 2008. This is a great boat for up to 4
passengers. Any more than that you will need more than one
light tackle boat.
I have several other guides that use and book (good fishing
guides) and I can set up other boats for fishing charters, if
you need more than one boat.
I fish both the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico
and everything in between. Some of the fish I target are
sailfish, dolphin, tuna, wahoo, kingfish, cobia, snapper,
grouper, amberjack, tarpon, permit and sharks. I mostly
use live bait, but also fish with cut bait, artificial baits or lures
and use shrimp boat by-catch for
Captain Paul's 2008 Contender.
If you look around, you will notice my rates are a little less than some
of the other light tackle boats in Key West. One of the reasons is
that I run a single four stroke engine boat that is good on
fuel. This certainly helps keep the cost down.
Another reason is the majority of my business is repeat
customers and referrals. So, I am not in any booking booth or
concierge service in any of the hotels. These "free" services
actually take a 20% to 30% commission to book the trip for you.
Most of these bookies do not even know what's really going on the water. The rest of my charters come from this
website, which I built and I maintain. Call me to set up a trip. I will make sure you get a good
| If I am
booked and can not fit you in on my boat, I will find a boat for
you. I know all of the top guides here in Key West and I only book charters with guides and captains that I know
personally. The guides I use catch fish and are the best at what
I want to make sure you have a great
trip in Key West
and I want you to come back and fish with me again.
offers great catches every season, from inshore on the flats
and back country to offshore on the reefs, wrecks and
blue water. Call me or
send an email for more information on the different styles
in Key West
and prices of the variety of
charters available in Key
If I am already booked
and I put you with another guide, their rates may be a little higher
than mine...Larger boats, rates increase.
Seize the Day Charters is located at Garrison Bight Marina, on the
corner of Eisenhower Drive and Palm Avenue.
