I'm not sure you can have a much better day in the Keys than out on a boat with Captain Chris. He knows the best spots for every type of fish and lobster, and reads the currents and ocean like it's his home. He was able to find lobsters even when people have spent weeks depleting the area of them. He also pointed out various fish and coral formations as we snorkels around. He is relaxed, patient, and we had an incredible day out on the boat!

Went out for the 2nd time with Chris and it was great again! Great captain that helps you with everything you need and is very accomodating. Very chill guy that is awesome to hang out with. Made sure we caught plenty of fish and had another awesome trip. Already have another one on the books for September!

If you are coming to Key West for the fishing, Chris Mendola is your guy. My buddy arranged this trip to go for sailfish, but on the day of our trip, Chris advised against it due to conditions. What to do? "Let's go out and try the grey snapper." Limited out in about 1 hr. Now what? "Let's try another spot for yellowtail & muttons." Limit in 2hrs. "Let's try a wreck for some amberjack." 24lb amberjack. "On the way back we can hit a couple of spots for deep jigging". 14lb tilefish. Yes 14lb tilefish.

Oh, forgot the 2 large grouper we got at the yellowtail stop. So on our trip we caught lots of fish on spinning reels, my favorite, and fought some big fish up from the bottom. Chris knows where the fish are and how to catch them. Everything he suggested on our trip worked. All provided with no bs by a nice guy.

We didn't lay all the fish out for a picture
b/c we were too tired. But these pics show basically a wheelbarrow filled with fish. You can see some of the bigger fish on top.

Awesome Cpt. By far, the best fishing out of key west. Plan was to target swords. Not only did he deliver on the swords, but was ready to go when other opportunities presented. Wound up catching some some nice mahi, triple tail, cobia, cuda, and snapper. Killer day on the water.

Chris will discuss what you are interested in doing, onshore, offshore, lobstering, spearfishing, and then let you know what the best options are depending on what is available, and he knows! We spent our first day spearfishing and cathing tuna, he put us on beautiful reefs and we caught blackfin tuna on a large wreck. The second day we wanted to load up on snapper and fish to take home, we limited on yellowtail snapper and caught several other delicious species. Took home almost 100 fillets. Chris is the only guide we will use in Key West from now on.
