About Compass Rose Charters
Key West fishing Fun. Capt Mike Weinhofer has been fishing Key West for over 26 years charter. I run a 37 foot SeaHunter center console for comfort and speed. I look forward to getting you out fishing. Patience for the beginner and Competence for the expert. We also do Back country trips for tarpon permit and sharks. Playing in the flats is like fishing in a fish bowl it is shallow calm relaxing and you can see the fish coming one after another.
