Fishing on a Key West Florida Fishing Charter out of Key West, Florida, is unlike any other charter you have ever been on. For me, Captain Mike Weinhofer, as well as my crew of experienced charter Captains, it's what we love to do!

It’s a chance to show clients, both novice and experienced, our passion and why we love fishing in the beautiful Florida Keys. On a Key West Florida Fishing Charter we like to have fun, so be sure to bring your sense of humor. Our goal is to get people involved in all levels of fishing. If we do ALL the necessary activities to prepare, find and hook your fish, then simply hand the rod to you, you have already missed out on a lot of what makes fishing so fulfilling. That wouldn’t be fun for you. We will teach you as much or as little as you want to know about Key West Florida Fishing. Some people want to help run the boat, hook their own bait and catch the fish and even gaff their own fish. We’re all for that! The more you learn with Key West Florida Fishing Charters the more fun you'll have on your trip. There is no need for apprehension. As with most charter boat captains, there isn't a mistake you can make on the boat that we haven’t already made at least once in our careers. I’m sure we would make plenty of mistakes at your job too. We believe fishing should be fun. Fishing is supposed to be fun. We like to laugh at (I mean with) our clients and may even bust your chops a little, but we are committed to making the charter experience fun for everyone on the boat.

On a Key West Florida Fishing Charter you can expect to use well-maintained gear and we pride ourselves on using first-class equipment. You pay good money to go fishing and we want to give you the best boat, tackle and gear to get it done well. The Key West Florida Fishing charter boats are safe, clean and maintained in top condition.

Booked a trip with Captain Mike on the Compass Rose for our vacation down in Key West. What an awesome day! Captain Mike and Mate Steve put us on some big Wahoo right away. Added some jigging and trolling to round out the day, and we all have a Blast! Great time, fun crew. Professional and well run charter boat. Highly recommended

— Steve A.

I’ve fished with Captain Mike three times now and I’ve always had a great time. We had two great days and one day where the fishing was not as great. It happens but one thing I would say is that Captain Mike could not have tried harder to find us fish or been fairer about the situation. One thing I would say is that whether the fishing has been great or not so great, you will always have a great time. Captain Mike is a lot of fun and a really knowledgeable captain.

— Tristram A.

Had a fabulous day out on the water with Mike! We never stopped laughing the entire trip, and he never stopped hunting out the fish! Can’t wait to go out with him again in November!

What an awesome experience we had this week. Took a trip down to the keys with my wife and younger kids. Fished for two days. We got on fish right away and landed Mahi, Grouper, Snapper, and Wahoo. This was just what we kept to eat! Tons of other species were landed as well. Capt Mike and Capt Steve are first class guys who are great with families.
