“Awesome trip”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

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 between 4 of us we did end up with 18 keeper mahi, lost 3 at the boat, some Bonita and a barracuda. Went out again the next day, fishing was really slow and we had to repeated dodge big rain storms. Ended up with 16 mahi, 2 lost at the boat, Bonita and a cero mackeral. Our friends went out the same time but on a different charter, they only caught 3 mahi and a shark. Jimmy knows his fishing!
This was the cleanest boat I've ever been on. The mate was great too. Both are born and raised in Key West - not a northern capt settled in the keys.

I would highly recommend going out with Jimmy, the fishing was really slow but he still managed to find us some fish?

The marina has free parking - another thing that is hard to find in Key West

“fastest boat at the dock w\ the best Captain on the Dock”
Reviewed March 14, 2011

hooked up charters Captain Jim Baily is the best, he can put you on the fish either blue water trolling for Dolphin and Wahoo or bottom fishing for Grouper and snapper Cap. Jim knows where the fish are and his 30 ft CAPE HORN center console does it in style with twin 250's you have to hold on to your hat or it is gone, nothing but a great time with hooked up charters, Captain Jim is my choice when out of towners come in and want to go fishing i have gone fishing with Cap. Jim at least 4 times and we always caught fish

“Best captain/charter in Key West!”
Reviewed June 29, 2010

Have used this captain five times now. Honest as the day is long. He will not promise anything he can't deliver. On this last trip, we knew the winds would keep us inshore, but he put us on some great grouper and snapper spots. He works real hard to make your day the best it can be.
