!! Sailfish season is here now!!

Split charter Dec.14 - Need 1 or 2

      
Bob from NJ with yet another sailfish.
This one was caught while anchored and it took almost an hour to land.

We specialize in catching sailfish during the winter and early spring. We use live bait and light tackle.
Often we sight fish for sailfish, this means we are not trolling but actually searching (hunting with fishing rods!) for
fish swimming and then tossing a bait to them. And sometimes we also catch sailfish that are showering bait.
For the thrill of a lifetime come on down to the Keys and get in the best sailfishing you can
find in this country. This is an experience you will never forget! If you have never done this before,
we will teach you, if you have, we will cater a trip to your skills. When sailfishing we might also catch other
species including kingfish, grouper, snapper, cobia, tuna, bonita, barracuda and dolphin.
We have lots of dates open for the coming months and we do other types of fishing if you are not interested in Sailfish.


Sailfish usually put on quite a show and are one of the fastest fish in the Oceans.


You will sometimes have multiple hook-ups when sailfishing!

 
There are a few dolphin around in sailfish season and they will eat the same bait we use for sailfish.

In business for over 43 years, same boat and same captain since 1976. We offer reasonable rates  and a top notch crew.
This is
not a business owned by some independently wealthy, retired or relocated person,
the captain is not a hired hand, this is a professional captain with a lifetime of experience fishing the
Keys who owns and operates his own boat. We want to take you fishing,
this is
all we do, all year, every year. The RESTLESS TOO is a customized 1964 Hatteras powered
with twin John Deere diesels (diesels without the smell), top quality tackle and
a vast array of modern electronics. You will catch fish! And have fun doing it with our
friendly professional crew. We have a NO Fish - No Pay guarantee. Our rates are much less than
the typical charter in the Florida Keys but our catching isn't. No one wants to
catch fish more than we do! Come get in on the fun!

Full Day trip is $1250. (8-9 hours)
3/4 Day trip is $1000 (6-7 hours)
Half day Reef trip is $800. (4-5 hours)
