Hillbilly Hookers Charters

Get ready for a Florida-style showdown and book your next fishing trip with Hillbilly Hookers! The best way to experience the Keys is with a local expert who knows all the best spots to put you on some remarkable fish. Captain Andrew Mercer invites you to join him on an island-hopping adventure while adding some weight to his boat!

The captain’s vessel is a 35’ Bluewater center console, built for versatility and comfort. She’s powered by 3 powerful 300 HP Suzuki engines and can easily cruise up to 40 knots, bringing you to some of the top fishing grounds in the area. The boat’s GPS and fishfinder will help you navigate the waters to make sure you’re at the right place at the right time.

Explore the world-famous Dry Tortugas Islands and go trolling for Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Kingfish. You’ll also have a chance to drift or bottom fish over some of the most productive wrecks and reefs along the Keys to target various Snapper and Grouper species.

There’s also snorkeling equipment available if you’d like to take a break and go for a dip. This is a great way to experience a unique opportunity and swim with the fish! If you have your own spearfishing gear, feel free to bring it along and enjoy a fun underwater challenge! For everything else, you’ll be provided with top-quality rods and reels, as well as live and dead bait, and artificial lures.

Capt. Andrew is flexible and will customize your trip to best suit your preferences. If you want to do a combination of different types of fishing or focus on one style, just let him know and he’ll make it work. The most important thing is that you’re having fun and creating lasting memories!

Hillbilly Hookers Charters’ mission is simple: “It’s all about putting you on fish while putting a smile on your face.” Your license is already provided, so you can get right down to the fishing and a fun adventure ahead.
