I went two days with this fishing guide. The first day he did everything he could to get me on tarpon. Saw a lot of Tarpon but we just could not get them to bite. The second trip out we caught 3 large tarpon, a lemon shark and hook a black tip shark. We also had a bull shark try to take our tarpon. Overall was a great day. If you want to go to Key West and get a Guide you can trust, Pepe is your guide.

Love to fish with Captain Pepe! (Book him ahead of time, as he is so popular that you may miss out!) Pepe always puts us on the fish and we have a lot of laughs. Just an all-around great guy, and unbelievable fisherman! A must if you love to fish in Key West!

We had a tremendous time with Capt Pepe and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to fish while in Key West. He is extremely personable, his boat and equipment are top notch, and he kept the fishing action hot all day.

My girlfriend and I fished a 1/2 day and it was the BEST part of our recent trip to KW. We met Pepe at the dock at 730 and he was ready to go. We headed out to some reefs 10-15minutes offshore and were instantly getting lots of action. As the chum set in the snapper got bigger and more species started to arrive. Before long we were catching keeper gray snapper, hogfish, and porgy. She hooked into a nice sized bar jack and had a blast fighting it to the boat. The action was non stop, and we quickly filled the cooler and had tons of fun doing so. Eventually Pepe netted some ballyhoo and we headed offshore. No luck with the sailfish but it was still fun to see how it’s done.

During any break in the action, we had a great time talking with Pepe about his various experiences being a capt in KW. His dinner suggestion (Santiago’s Bodega) was also awesome.

Thanks Pepe, Can’t wait till next time!

Captain Pepe needs to change his name to Captain Awesome!!
My wife and I had been fishing only a couple of times before going down to Key West for our 25th anniversary. We could not have had a better experience with Captain Pepe.
We thought we were going to fish for red snapper or smaller fish, but ended up going shark fishing. My wife caught a 5-6 foot lemon shark and I hauled in a 7-8 foot lemon shark as well.
The boat was in immaculate condition and Captain Pepe kept us entertained with fishing stories all afternoon. I cannot recommend Captain Pepe enough for couples or families. It was a perfect morning/afternoon and my wife is now “hooked” on going out fishing again and “battling” with another shark or big fish.
Captain Pepe went above and beyond the call of duty with his hospitality and easy going nature. He was a consummate professional and a generous and thoughtful teach

Pepe was just what I needed….a light tackle bay boat for action for me, my son-in-law and grandson age 17. I have fished with many guides (mostly fly fishing) all over the country and Captain Pepe ranks at the top of the list. Very accommodating and worked very hard to please us. Patient and pleasant. Fished with him in Feb of 2015. Caught lots of snapper and grouper.
