Key West Fishing Charters

Kevin Newell

2018 marks Kevin's 18th year guiding. He specializes in the waters around Key West.

Our light tackle fishing charters in Key West focus on providing you exactly what you want from a day on the water. When you get on the boat it's your day and we do what you want to do. We talk about what fish are available and make a game plan for the day.
We fish with the highest quality tackle available, because we're not going to risk losing your fish of a lifetime.
We often fish multiple areas in a day to give you the best possible fishing and to catch a variety of different species.
Give us a call, you will be glad you did!

Light Tackle Fishing Charters

One of the reasons that the Key West area provides such consistent fishing success is because of it's close proximity to both the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.

The Total Fisherman Philosophy

We believe that:

- Spending your life doing something you love is the secret to happiness.
- Attention to detail and being absolutely driven, catches fish and creates success.
- A focused effort catches more fish and bigger fish. Just going through the motions is for other people.
- Spending extra time and effort toward making your day successful is important and makes a difference.
- We believe that cutting corners on expenses and effort isn't something you do, even if nobody else will know.
- We believe we should expect the most from every day on the water and hold ourselves to a higher standard.
- We should give back as much and as often as we possibly can.

Giving 100% every day is the norm. Let's be realistic ... every one of us has to have a last day on the water. We never know when that day will come, so we are absolutely going to make every day our best day.

We won't tell you that we're catching Marlin every day, or tell you the fishing is red hot when it's not, or any of the other assorted things that guides tell prospective clients to get them on their boats. We're honest and we have integrity.

We provide high quality fishing trips at the median price for charters in Key West. We could charge more or we could charge less, but we don't want you to come fishing with us because your decision is based on price. We want you to come fishing with us because you think we run a first class operation, that we are going to treat you well, and because we catch fish.

We're not the Dollar Store of fishing charters and we certainly aren't the Four Seasons. Our pricing is middle of the road. We believe in charging enough so that we can use high quality equipment, maintain this equipment, and not have to cut corners. We also believe that charging the average price will hopefully allow you to come back more often.

We really take fishing seriously, it's our passion and we certainly want to catch fish just as much as you do; that's why we go during the best times to the best locations and spend extra time, effort, and money to make your trip the best that it can be. We want you to have a successful trip so you come back fishing with us, we also want to be successful so we maintain our reputation as a top notch charter boat.

We take a lot of pride in our fish catching ability and we do everything in our power to put fish in the box, while at the same time having fun, and keeping you safe.

Our approach to life and to fishing isn't standard, and it would certainly be "easier" for us if we weren't worried about these things, but the easy route and the safe bet aren't what we're after. We care about you and we care about your experience on our boat.

We believe our customers, peers and fellow fishermen know that we hold this philosophy close to our hearts and that they know we are out there every day living it. We believe it's important to not let them down.
