When locals want to come back tomorrow, you know it was a great day! Captain Rich had to take his girl sky-diving, but sent us out with John as our captain and Paul as mate for an incredible day of dolphin fishing! We caught every size from peanuts to a 28 pound bull. A group of 6 grey haired locals... More

Captain Rich and his First Mate did a great job for us on a all day trip with my twin 14 year old daughters and me, in spite of what was high winds and difficult conditions. He made sure they had the time of their life, catching (and releasing) a large Black Tip Shark -- Bucket List for one daughter... More

If in key... More

My wife and I had a morning charter on Southbound on Feb 14th (romantic?) I could not say enough about the amount of fun and excitement my wife and I had with Captain Rich and John. My wife got ill twice and she still had a great time (even was able to catch a nice mackerel). Even if we did... More

I knew we were in the right place immediately. Only 1 of 4 of us had any real fishing experience. Before we left Cpt. Rich asked us all what we wanted to do. It wasn't based on what was biting, but rather what we thought we would have fun doing. He runs a laid-back, but very professional charter. We had... More

I took my daughter and mother out for a day of fishing and not being great fishermen what we really wanted was an experience and some great pictures to take home. Capt.

Always dreamed of fishing in the keys with my two sons. Captain Rich and John were nothing but excellent. We were having a slow start but he went further and we had some nice catches. Nice Mahi mami and Tuna. Thanks to John's skills in cleaning and filetting the fish, we had a great dinner cooked by the chef at... More

My husband and 3 kids (ages 17,14,& 11) went out for a 4 hour trip with Capt. John and First Mate Paul. We caught sharks, snapper and grouper. The guys were informative and taught us a lot about reef fishing while keeping things fun and exciting for the kids. Definitely coming back to KW for another fishing trip with these... More

Captain Rich Houde did it again! We went fishing with him in Dec 2012 and again last week. He asked what we wanted to catch- my husband said dolphin ( Mahi Mahi) and he didn't disappoint! Fantastic at navigation through the reef! Definitely with the full day charter price!
