The Kay K IV was built in 2002. Air conditioned, well maintained and fast, the K KAY IV was customized to maximize fishability and comfort. We can easily handle up to 6 fishermen in the KAY K IV’s huge cockpit with it’s large live bait well. The experienced crew will guide you to and give you instructions on how to catch Mahi , Wahoo, Sailfish, Kingfish, Tuna and more. Do you want to fish the reef for yellowtail snapper, muttons snapper and groupers? We can do that! How about fishing for something different? Deep dropping (300ft to 600ft) for snapper, tilefish, porgies and snowy grouper; just a few of the tasty deepwater fish species that Captain Don has the equipment and the expertise to catch. Concerned about getting seasick or don’t want to get too far out to sea? Try our patch fishing trip. Lots of action, close to shore and in relatively calm water. We have a clean bathroom, comfortable seating and a large fish box. We also have a courteous, professional, and experienced crew that will make your trip truly memorable.

A group of 6 of us did a full day Mahi trip with Captain Don and we were not disappointed. The boat was clean and comfortable. We caught 40+ Mahi with some great bulls in there. My husband caught a huge bull. The first mate Tony was super nice and works hard. We got into a school of fish and... More

There is nothing but good to say about captain Don and his crew! They made us feel right at home on his beautiful and very well equipped vessel. They worked their Tails off ensuring we brought in the nicest catch of the day! Our goal was to catch enough fish for a family gathering next weekend! Let me put it... More

I went with my boyfriend and his family for the first time off shore fishing and I wouldn't of wanted it with any other captain! The boat was wonderful and clean and the ride was great as well. Capt Don and Tony were outstanding and definitely made the experience better!

My wife and I went reef fishing with Capt Don and first mate, Tony, earlier this week. What a great experience! We are new to fishing but both Don and Tony were unfazed and very helpful. Not withstanding our inexperience we had a wonderful day on the water and came back to the dock with our limit on yellowtail snapper.... More

I had my son and 3 of his college age friends out for a day of mahi mahi fishing on June 9th. We had a great time and got a good catch. Don really knows his stuff, will spot the fish from the tower and try to find the big guys. One of the guys caught a 35lb mahi. Tony... More
