Capt Jimmy took us out last week and all we did was catch fish. Groupers, snappers of all kinds, Goliath Grouper, sharks,.....it was non-stop action. He knows where to go to catch fish and he knows how to catch them. Go fishing with Capt JImmy Bailey on the Hooked-Up. You won't regret it.

Captain Jimmy and his awesome mate Jeff took out my husband and two sons on a half day trip. Fishing was slow this week all over the keys offshore, but Jimmy took my boys barracuda fishing. They caught 8 or so barracuda, including a few very large ones and some grouper. They had a blast and even sent one trophy... More

Bonitas, mackerel, yellow fin tuna, Copia, two eight foot Sharks (or was it the same one twice??). Mick never stopped working and did... More

After talking with Jimmy Bailey on the dock for 15 minutes I knew he was the Captain for me to go with. He was born and raised in Key West knew the waters. His first mate Tom never quite working, always checking bait and keeping the rods ready. Caught Mutton and Grouper and Dolphin. Will always use "Hooked Up Charters"... More

My daughter and I went out with Jimmy and Tom for six hours trolling in blue water, the next day we fished for sharks four hours. They were friendly and knowledgeable. We caught plenty of fish and had a great time! I recommend Hooked Up Charters to everyone.

We went out with Capt. Jimmy and first mate Tom. They took us out in the gulf due to high seas in the ocean. We had a great time. We caught Bonita and then a black tipped shark which was beautiful to see and then saw probably 50 other sharks which was amazing. We then caught mackerel and other fish.... More

Fished 2 days with Capt. Jimmy. we caught Mahi, Grouper. Snapper, and a Sailfish. Mate Tom was outstanding and was hands down the best duo i have ever fished with. If you are looking for a charter in Key west look no further,you will not find better.I would highly recommend Fishing with "Hooked Up."

We spent a week in Islamorada looking for fish. Had a boat rented, followed the birds, the weed line and rips -got nothing. Our last few days lead us to Key West and the boat docks. We ended up on a six hour trip. Our first drop of lines provided 2 hookups of Mahi! We had some slow times but... More
