It was a chilly 60 degrees with 20 mph winds. However, the captain and first mate kept hopes high with great attitude and jokes. Honestly the weather was not cooperating. Swells were high and it was hard to even stand. Regardless of what mother earth threw at us... in the end he put us on fish! We had a great... More

My family chartered the Dirty Boat on Thanksgiving morning 2015. The wife, myself, and my 8 & 10 yr old daughters wanted to enjoy some fishing but on the way out to sea the waves started really kicking up (was 2-4 ft when we left and got at 6-8 ft about a 30 minutes later). The waves were just to... More

Capt. Joe and his mate, Kit, put us on the fish again We caught dolphin and yellowtail snappers. Anyone can go fishing but not everyone can catch fish, as we do on the Dirty Boat. Thank you Capt. Joe and mate Kit. Looking forward to another AWESOME fishing trip! Bill and Twila

We did two separate split charters with Capt. Joe and his 1st Mate, Kit. Our first was a 3/4 day reef/wreck charter. Even though we were only out several hours, we caught quite a few mackerel, barracuda, and even a shark. The second day we did a full day offshore and tore up the the tuna! Capt. Joe works to...

A friend and I had gone down to the Keys to lobster and try our luck at some tuna fishing. After about 3 hrs of trolling with no hits, we noticed the Dirty Boat coming full bore straight at us. Now the first thing I thought was oh crap! I pissed off one of the locals somehow. Let me tell... More

I have been chartering Joe during my vacation for the past three years. Each year including has been a blast and more than we expected. If you are looking to do some top notch fishing while down in the keys, make sure to charter the Dirty Boat. S. Ceng
