Experience Key West fishing in comfort and cruise through the beautiful backcountry and flats of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. DNA Sportfishing offers some of the best inshore fishing Key West has to offer. Conveniently based out of Oceans Edge Resort & Marina, one of the new premier resorts in Key West, Captain Dave Irwin, a third-generation commercial fisherman and guide, will ensure you have an enjoyable and productive day out on the water.

Your fishing vessel for the day will be a 24’ Yellowfin bay boat. Powered by a 300 HP Mercury outboard, she has a max cruising speed of 50 knots, so you can rest assured you won’t be wasting much time getting to your fishing spot. Fully equipped with all the navigation, communication and fish-finding electronics, safety equipment, and even a JL Audio system, the boat has every feature you’d need for a fun day of fishing.

Captain Dave specializes in a variety of styles of backcountry fishing and welcomes anglers of all skill levels. From the first time fisherman to the pro angler he’s committed to adapting to every client’s needs and goals. He uses only the best tackle, gear, and equipment and is on the Van Staal Pro-Staff Program for spinning reels, Hatch Outdoors for fly reels, Biscayne Rod Company for spinning rods, and the Thomas & Thomas Pro Guide Program for fly rods.

Thanks to the world-renowned diversity of fish that the Keys offer the types of fishing grounds and species you can target is unlike anywhere else. Fish around the mangrove islands for Mangrove Snapper, Goliath Grouper, Barracuda, Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, and Shark. Or fish the channels in the backcountry for Tarpon, Permit, Cobia, Goliath Grouper, and Shark.

Apart from fishing tackle, also included in the price of all trips is your fishing license, live bait, bottled water and catch cleaning. The only things you should bring along are any food or drinks you’d like, some sunscreen and your sunglasses and you’ll be ready for your adventure!

My name is Capt. Dave Irwin, I hold a USCG 100 ton Masters License. I am a fourth-generation fisherman in the Florida Keys. My family homesteaded Flamingo in the 1940s. Which is now known as "Everglades National Park." I started commercial fishing as a mate for my dad, Capt. Johnny Irwin, when I was 12 years old. That's when he taught me about the water and how to fish for a variety of species. I chose to become a professional fishing guide to be able to share some of my experiences with others that have the same passion for the outdoors and fishing as I do. I am on multiple Pro-Staff programs in the fishing industry. As the charter logo states: "It's in our blood. " Come on down to Key West, FL and let me take you on your next fishing adventure. Fishing isn't just a way to make a living for me, it's a way of life.
