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

We had a fantastic time fishing with Capt. Don and Caveman, his first mate (he goes by "Cave," for short.) They were both phenomenal. The weather was rough that day, with 8 to 10 foot seas, and Capt. gave us the option of canceling. We were only in Islamorada for 3 days, however, so we weren't skipping a day of... More

We had a super time fishing on the beautiful Kaye K IV with Captain Don and Caveman last Saturday. First we got into the tuna. Caveman was hustling around the cockpit with us while we caught one after another, sometimes two at a time! Then while Captain Don maneuvered the boat into position, Caveman showed us how to do some... More

Captain Don and "Cave-man" made our trip so remarkable! We had never done any kind of big-fishing in the ocean. We went as a family (an 18 and 16 yr olds) and absolutely loved it! We caught 10 sharks between all of us and it was fantastic. Don's boat is amazing and Cave-Man showed us exactly what to do to... More

I have gone out with Captain Don over the past several years, multiple times each year. There has never been a time we did not have just a blast!! I am so impressed how well he understands the fish species that we pursued. What ever fish species we wanted he got us on the spot. I will be coming back... More

What a night the sharks and rays were circling all around the boat, and my three kids age(7,8,9) caught four sharks each ranging from 35-100 lbs each. A new shark would bite as soon as one came it, even a couple double hook ups. Capt Don and Cave were great with the kids, a perfect night fishing, thank you.

Kay K IV Charters and crew were professionals who made our fishing experience incredibly enjoyable this past President's Day weekend. The boat was beautiful and comfortable. The crew was knowledgeable and courteous. We relied on their wisdom to find the best fishing spots. Because of that my husband (along with a little encouragement from the crew and friends) caught a... More

My friends and I fished with Captain Don on the KayK1V on Martin Luther King week. The fishing was tremendous. The captain knew exactly were the fish were and as soon as we put our rods in we caught fish after fish. I personally recommend captain Don and his mate, they work great as a team to make the trip...
