This was my first time off-shore fishing and it was amazing. Capt. Michelle made us feel comfortable on our new adventure and the fishing was good to boot. I had called Capt. Michelle about a month before our trip was to take place, she maintained contact with me each week and even during a pending hurricane the calls became more frequent, keeping me informed of the weather in Key West. Once we got to Key West we made contact again, got accurate driving directions to her loaction and the fishing commenced. She took us 7 miles off shore and less than five minutes after we anchored I had captured a 23" red tail snapper and the catching didn"t stop. The four hours on the water and I mean four hours of fishing, not four hours from dock to dock, were amazing. It was a warm ,sunny day and Capt Michelle provided beverages to both of us. Once back to the dock, she fileted a couple of fish and we went to the local campground where the were cooked fresh. Once we finished lunch, Capt Michelle had fileted all our fish, placed them in ziplock bags and provided ice for our cooler. Nothing like catching a bunch of fish and finding a friend at the same time. Thank you Capt Michelle, your our first choice from now on.

Your new Louisiana friend,

There were four of us....two girls, two guys. One guy wanted to spear fish, one wanted to bottom firsh, and I wanted lobster! Michelle managed to make everyone happy. We did a 3/4 day trip and reeled in a bunch of yellow tail. She knew what was biting and where. We had so much fun with Michelle we did another 1/2 day the next day for lobster. We are so glad we found Spear It! Going out on the water with Michelle absolutely made our trip. There is no question that I will go back to her year after year from now on. She knows her stuff and she's a blast to be with to boot!

This is our 2nd year going out on this charter and we have not been disappointed. Capt. Michelle and her first mate Eric are so fun and friendly! She takes you to all the best spots and she has plenty of spots to try out! We went lobstering and spear fishing! It was a hunt this year but we had a lot of fun both days we were hooked!

Went with two friends that have never been spear fishing before and I have been a couple times. We were in the water spearing hogs in a matter of minutes. Our captain, michelle, aka hog dog, was unbelievable. She made the trip so much fun, and this chick def knows what she is doing and where to find the fish. She must have taken us to twelve different spots after we cleared each one. Michelle, and her mate Eric, made the trip fun, exciting, and truly unique for us. She has such an awesome outlook and attitude, and so laid back. If you want something amazing to do in key west besides mindless binge drinking, this should be first on anyone's list.

A group of ladies decided to head to the Keys for a lot of fun, and once we found Spear It Charters, we had to book a 3/4 day trip! Left early from Capt. Michelles dock, and she and Eric put us on a lot of Yellow tails, Trigger fish, and Strawberry Grouper, we also managed to bring home several lobsters! Michelle and Eric take their time with each person, and they work very hard to make your fishing trip a successful one! Not like most charters, these folks let you be yourself, and they make your charter a very personable one! She has an awesome boat! Book a trip with her, you won't regret it, I promise....
