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. « less

Went out with Capt Don and his mate Dan with the family today. We had a great time and caught alot of mahi. They worked very hard finding fish and it paid off. I think we caught more than other boat today. Thanks Don & Dan. Hope we get to do it again. Bob

I fished today (Sept 2nd) with Captain Don, first mate Tony and my five friends. The day was amazing with lots of reef action for Yellowtail Snapper and deep dropping for Porgies. The fishing is always good so the part of the trip that makes it special is the comfort of the boat and the friendly relaxed professionalism of the... More

After much aggravation with trying to find a split on another charter, we stumbled across Caption Don and the Kay K. So glad we did! He worked very hard to find us fish on a very choppy day. He knew this was important to me as it was my husbands 50th birthday celebration. We caught about 16 dolphin in less... More

Let me just start out by saying rain rain go away!!! Lol! We have been trying to fish for two days as this was a short trip to the Keys. We postponed the scheduled trip on the Kay K IV by a day to see if the weather would clear. The very next day the weather was still at 60%... More

We went out 7.24.14 with Captain Don and Mate Tommy. The Gulf was pretty choppy and had more than half of our group not feeling well. The Captain and Mate worked hard at locating the fish and were spot on. We came home with 21 Dolphin and 2 Tuna when most other boats arrived home with a handful. We were... More

We fished with Captain Don on July 10th. He and mate Rick are both outstanding people. We had a great time catching 40 or more Mahi, 5 of them were gaffers over 20lbs! Our group had several individuals that had never been offshore before, and the Captain and mate's attention, instruction and patience were amazing. So much so that we... More

Captain Don is a total professional. I had a great time fishing with him. I caught a 50 lb amberjack, some yellow tail snapper, queen snapper, tile fish, and grouper. We threw the snowy grouper back (not in season).

We booked a half day charter on the Kay K IV on the merits of it's tripadvisor rating. Capt Don and mate Rick worked hard for the duration of charter to provide us with a nice bounty of Yellowtail Snapper. In total we caught 33 fish in the 1 and 1/2lb to 2lb range. The crew chummed the water the... More
