Great day of fishing. The crew knew exactly where to go and what to do to catch a bunch of fish. We caught around 60 yellow tails and 2 jacks over 40 pounds.

This past June i decided to go down to Key West, while i was there i booked a trip with Linda D to go fishing. Some friends of mine had recommend them to me, i have to say they were AMAZING!!!
I had the best time out there, my first catch was a Sand Shark which i fought with him for a while but it was worth it. Once i caught it, i took some pictures and released him back into the water. My second catch was a Tarpon which it took some time to get but I did!!!!The day was perfect sunny and the water was not so rough. I would recommend them to anyone, the Captain has so much experience you can go with your eyes close and trust him that you will get the fish you want.

This past weekend my girlfriend and I went down to Key west for the weekend. On Saturday we decided to go on a fishing trip, we chose Linda D because when we got the dock we liked what they offered and the experience the captain had. As we went out,he explain everything in detail and in a friendly matter. We had such a great time, the weather was perfect and we were lucky to have caught a lot of fish. Would i recommend this charter to anyone else?? Absolutely!!!!!!!! They were amazing, keep up the good work.

We had the best time with Capt. Billy and Joe for my husband's birthday. We caught 21 snapper some of which we took to a local restaurant to cook for dinner - which was wonderful, and we couldn't believe it when our son, who booked the trip, hooked a Goliath Grouper and his girlfriend followed that with a Shark! What a day! We will definitely book with Capt. Billy again when we are back in the Keys - would highly recommend him.
