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.

Kay K IV is the best! Captain Don and Dave are very professional and took great care of my daughter and grandson and I on our first offshore fishing trip. Dave worked so hard in helping my 10 year old grandsons dream of catching his first Mahi Mahi. The smile on his face when he reeled it in was priceless... More

We are experienced anglers and hard to please. We always get guides with trepidation. When we boarded Kay K the boat was clean, Don and David were well dressed and professional. The boat was immaculate and the gear was top notch. We've been on so many boats where the crew either had an attitude or wouldn't shut up. Don and... More

Captain Don and his mate Dave need to be your first choice for charter fishing in the Keys! The experience couldn't have been better with a catch of 60lbs of Dolphin (Mahi Mahi ) for the day. Both were extremely experienced and professional. They were both dedicated to a great experience fishing with an outcome of bringing a bountiful catch... More

While staying on Islamorada we wanted to go Mahi fishing. We got recommended to take a charter with Cap. Don and first mate Dave. First thing in the morning we arrived at the dock parked right by the boat and met Cap. Don and Dave. Both dressed nice and were very helpful with loading all of our gear. As we... More

We highly recommend this fishing charter! We had an awesome time on our shark and tarpon fishing trip with Captain Don and David! They were very accommodating. We caught a lot of sharks and our 14 year-old had fun trying to reel in a huge tarpon! Thank you for the fun time and the great memories! We hope to be... More

We are a family with two young girls aged 10 and 11 years old. None of us had ever sea fished before. The boat is spotlessly clean and looks magnificent. Really First Class boat. We felt like millionaires !! Nice cruise out sitting up top with Capt. Don who is very knowledgeable and answered all my rookie questions. He explained... More

My son and I decided to go fishing before school started. His father has ALS and is failing fast so I wanted to do something special that Cole would be excited to tell his father about. Something they both love to do. I on the other hand had never been "offshore" fishing and have a "newfound" appreciation for those that... More

I've been fishing before, but this trip was the best so far! Captain Don and mate Dave made this trip memorable! I'm not a fishing person by any means. But I went with family and had a great time. When I come back to visit, I'm definitely booking with the Kay K again! I highly recommend them for a great... More
