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 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

We ended up catching 30 good size Mahi Mahi and one small tuna. Don and Rick were amazing. Rick was very helping and patience with my son and it... 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

Finding a good charter is often hard work, but when you find a gem others need to know so they can support this great boat and crew while having the best time fishing. Captain Don and 1st mate Ricky are the real deal. Two great guys who run the cleanest boat I have ever been on. We went out on... More

We had an awesome trip with Capt. Don and first mate Rick. They put us on a lot of fish. We had planned a deep drop trip however Capt. Don said the current was over 2 knots and it would be a bad trip. We decided to go Mahi fishing instead and we were not disappointed. Capt. Don has a... More

After much urging by our son, we scheduled a half day charter with Capt. Don and Mate Rick for our family of 4. I am glad we finally did it! All four of us are at different fishing levels: from 'intermediate' to 'never touched a fishing pole before.' i can't say enough about the professionalism of this crew. They really... More

We have done 6 charters with Capt Don over the past three years. Each one has been a special adventure with lots of great fishing. No one works harder than Capt Don and his Firstmate to "get you on the fish." It's great fun and great family time. Always like to watch my teenage boys reeling in the big ones.... More

Our group has been going out with Captain Don for over twenty years now. We have never had a bad outing with him. They are serious about catching fish but even more intent that everyone have a good time. We book the next year's trip with them as soon as we get off the boat - we wouldn't consider using... More
