After talking with Jimmy Bailey on the dock for 15 minutes I knew he was the Captain for me to go with. He was born and raised in Key West knew the waters. His first mate Tom never quite working, always checking bait and keeping the rods ready. Caught Mutton and Grouper and Dolphin. Will always use "Hooked Up Charters"... More

My daughter and I went out with Jimmy and Tom for six hours trolling in blue water, the next day we fished for sharks four hours. They were friendly and knowledgeable. We caught plenty of fish and had a great time! I recommend Hooked Up Charters to everyone.

We went out with Capt. Jimmy and first mate Tom. They took us out in the gulf due to high seas in the ocean. We had a great time. We caught Bonita and then a black tipped shark which was beautiful to see and then saw probably 50 other sharks which was amazing. We then caught mackerel and other fish.... More

Fished 2 days with Capt. Jimmy. we caught Mahi, Grouper. Snapper, and a Sailfish. Mate Tom was outstanding and was hands down the best duo i have ever fished with. If you are looking for a charter in Key west look no further,you will not find better.I would highly recommend Fishing with "Hooked Up."

We spent a week in Islamorada looking for fish. Had a boat rented, followed the birds, the weed line and rips -got nothing. Our last few days lead us to Key West and the boat docks. We ended up on a six hour trip. Our first drop of lines provided 2 hookups of Mahi! We had some slow times but... More

Have used this captain five times now. Honest as the day is long. He will not promise anything he can't deliver. On this last trip, we knew the winds would keep us inshore, but he put us on some great grouper and snapper spots. He works real hard to make your day the best it can be.
