The Kay K IV was built in 2002. Air conditioned, well maintained and fast, the K KAY IV was customized to maximize fishability and comfort. 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.

I took four key employees to Islamorada to fish as a reward for their exemplary work this year. I was told by the 4 star resort where we were staying that Captain Don Chittick was the best guide & boat on the island. We fished with him & his first mate, Dave, for 2 days. It was a great experience... More

We returned to fish on the KayKIV with Captain Don Chittick on November 4, 2016; and guess what, we will be back again….and again….and again. I’ve been fishing the Florida Keys since I was a kid and I have to say the Captain Don is one of the most professional, knowledgeable, personable, and talented captains I’ve been around….and I’ve been...

Thanks Samantha, Enjoyed having you on the boat but next time you have to elbow the guys out of the way so you get a chance to fish too. You do know the ladies always catch the biggest fish? It a proven fact, but you can't catch that fish unless you fish. Maybe next time we will just take you,... More

Been fishing the keys for 15 years but first time on a charter boat. Amazing experience and amazing people both Don and Dave were so helpful and were great fun to be around. We caught 31 fish in all which was way beyond expectations. If you want the best fishing In the keys Kay K IV is the one!
