Imagine fighting a Sailfish or Wahoo with the sea breeze blowing past while your jealous buddies are back at work thinking about you!

Key West and Florida fishing in general
just doesn't get any better than this!

How long will you put off the fishing trip of a lifetime? How many times have you thought about what it would be like to reel in a sailfish and then thought "Maybe next year?" Now is the time to call Captain Craig Jiovani who has over 25 years of experience in the waters surrounding Key West and the lower Florida Keys studying the patterns and behaviors of the various species of sport fish and sharks here.

If you are looking for the thrill of bringing in a fish that's as big as you are then you are in the right place! The Charterboat Ultra Grand Slam has the equipment to help you catch great fish and to be comfortable while you're doing it. Her captain knows the area and how to find the best spots to catch your next wall trophy and how to make it so much fun you'll be talking about it for years.

It is not uncommon for the guests on other charter boats to be fishing while Captain Craig's vacationers are catching, and that's where the fun is!

 There are many days that you can turn on the marine radio and hear other charter fishing boat captains talking about how slow it is while the guests of Captain Craig are reeling in huge sailfish or sharks or any of a number of other fish like the great tasting dolphin (aka Mahi Mahi)!

Look around all you like at our site and when you get ready to schedule your next great fishing charter adventure just pick up the phone and call the number in our Contact Us! section.

More about Florida fishing.

There are all kinds of fish for you to catch in the waters of Key West and the Florida Keys. While fishing here you will see many species depending on the season and water conditions. Some of the fish you will likely encounter are: Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Kingfish, Barracuda, Marlin, Wahoo, Dolphin fish (Mahi Mahi), Grouper, Tarpon, Yellowtail and various sharks.

In fact, there are over 220 species of gamefish in the waters of the Florida Keys. Of course, not all of these are suitable gamefish, there are plenty of challenges out there. While a 15 pound bass may be fine for the lakes up north, imagine yourself reeling in a 7 foot, 55 pound sailfish like 13 year old John Edwards did while aboard our boat. This is what charter boat fishing is all about!

The best vacation is fishing in Key West!

Have you ever had a vacation that seems like it is just driving, walking and rushing around to see all the sites on your list? May we suggest a Key West fishing excursion instead? It has all the elements of a great vacation without all the headaches. You can drive or taxi over to the docks, jump on the boat and enjoy a short trip out to where the fish are waiting to take your line! How much more relaxing is a day on the water catching those great fish and enjoying the breeze from the bridge or even tanning on the deck if you're not the angler of the family?

The Ultra Grand Slam has an air conditioned salon, 2 state rooms, bathrooms and all the comforts of home. Read more about it on our page about the boat. What more could you ask from a vacation than a relaxing boat ride, exciting fish catches and all the sun and sea you could want. It sure sounds better than waiting in line for an hour to ride the next great rollercoaster that only lasts a few minutes, doesn't it?

If you have any questions about your next vacation the call Captain Craig and he can give you the details and before you know it you'll be fighting a Marlin or cheering on your family member as they bring in the biggest fish you've ever caught!
