About Us

The first time I set foot in the Florida Keys, I knew this was the place for me.  The
ocean water mesmerized me to the point, there was no turning back.  Goodbye to
cold, snowy winters.  We were here to stay.  My wife, and First Mate, Lynda, and I
have since set our goals to help folks like you have a great fishing trip you will
never forget.  If you are looking for a winter getaway, this place has it all.  Beautiful
weather, mostly in 70's in winter, warm water, great food, and best of all Super

I am a USCG certified Captain.  We operate out of Big Pine Key area, Mile Marker
30, on U.S. Highway 1.  We have a 2006 - 33foot Hydrosport open fisherman with
triple 250 Yamaha four strokes.  We can get you to the fish with ease and comfort
on the Lynda Jean.  We fish with top of the line equipment and always try to be
prepared for a change of plans in what we fish for.  We offer multiple types of
fishing such as Deep Dropping, Kite Fishing, Trolling, Drifting, and Night fishing
for Swordfish.

There is no greater job than ours.  We get to meet and take good people like you
out and help you catch that first Sailfish, laugh with you while you are trying to reel
in that giant grouper or amberjack from 200' to 600' below, or listen to whoops of
excitement when we get into a school of dolphin and have 5 or 6 fish on at the same
time, or spend an entire night in the dark of night to hook on to that beautiful
