    The best of both ends of the day. Tarpon being nocturnal by nature are best fished for during the early am and late pm hours. This trip leaves right at sunrise for 4 hours, returns to the dock during lunch time and heads back out around 5:00pm for another four hours. This is truly the best chance you will have to catch a Tarpon in the spring time, one of the most popular trips we offer!!

August 1998 I started running Charters professionally out of Key West.

Come experience an awesome day on the water with one of the most productive teams in Key West!! From early childhood in Washington State, Dave was on the water every possible minute. As a freshwater fisherman young Dave became an expert on Steelhead and Salmon. Making the decision to fish in the tropic’s Captain Dave found himself in Key West in 2000.
