Key West fishing Fun. Capt Mike Weinhofer has been fishing Key West for over 23 years charter. I run a 37 foot SeaHunter center console for comfort and speed. I look forward to getting you out fishing. Patience for the beginner and Competence for the expert.

  We also do Back country trips for tarpon permit and sharks. Playing in the flats is like fishing in a fish bowl it is shallow calm relaxing and you can see the fish coming one after another.

Cap'n Mike was recommended by a co-worker and he exceeded our expectations. He is a great captain--he knows the waters and finds where the fish are biting. He's patient -- coaching and teaching appropriate style and technique. He's got great stories and historical knowledge of the Keys. These were the best two days of fishing we've had and we will...

Late afternoon on a Thursday afternoon I decided that a deep sea fishing trip was in order. We visited the Charter Boar Row to seek out a potential Charter for the following day (a big ask I agree as I know how busy these guys get). I perhaps shouldn't have - but having no other way to judge the charters... More

Just had a trip with Capt Mike, first class all the way from his boat to how he fishes. Enjoyed all of it, he really wants his clients to have fun on their trip. His knowledge of the water and the fishing is second to none. We will be back.

I've had the pleasure of fishing with several other private charter companies in Florida... And captain Mike is a phenomenal captain/owner. We had a few anxiety ridden passengers, all of whom were calmed down by Mikes great sense of humor and all around "boat side manner. " We all had a fantastic time!! 4 days In key West... 2 days...

Took my family out with kids ages 12 to 7. Picked a day where the weather was questionable. Ended up running back to the harbor to avoid some pretty big squalls. Not only did Capt.
