In demand!

Operating out of Key West, Florida, Corsair 2 Sportfishing specializes in providing their clients with premier fishing charters. Captain Russ McKinley has more than 30 years of experience fishing these waters, and he can’t wait to show you the best deep sea fishing the area has to offer.

He invites you to spend the day aboard his 50’ Hatteras saltwater fishing boat and create lifelong memories. The “Corsair 2” comes powered by twin 450 HP Detroit engines and can accommodate up to 6 anglers fishing without bumping elbows or tangling lines.

Fully overhauled in 2018, you’ll only find the latest gear and amenities on this boat, from top-notch marine electronics and safety gear to outriggers, downriggers, a flybridge, a fighting chair, a live bait tank, and the list keeps on impressing.

Capt. Russ will show you the best fisheries and hotspots known only to locals. He’ll take you up to 20 miles offshore and do everything he can to put you on Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, or a variety of Shark (Hammerhead, Tiger, and Mako).

You’ll also get to try your hand at various fishing techniques, including trolling and kite fishing during the fall/winter season, along with bottom and big game fishing.

Whatever you choose, Corsair 2 Sportfishing will take care of all the fishing gear and lures. Live bait is available at an additional fee. Fishing licenses are also provided and the first mate will even clean your catch after the trip is over.

What else can you ask for an ultimate day on the water?
