The Experience

Light tackle sport fishing and fly-fishing the Lower Keys and Key West since 1980.

Capt. Mark Schmidt provides a friendly and no-stress environment in which to experience catching the different species of fish found while sportfishing the Lower Keys and Key West. Novices and veteran anglers alike will enjoy the time spent on the water fishing with Capt. Mark Schmidt.

Many world records have been caught aboard Capt. Mark’s boats, but he is equally proud of guiding novice anglers to their first trophy fish. Bring the family and kids to fish and enjoy the birds, turtles and porpoises that abound in the pristine waters around Key West. Having lunch on one of the remote Keys along both the Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico is another family option as well.

The “Keys”

The Lower Keys and Key West provide a unique fishing opportunity because the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico come together here. The variety of fish around Key West is amazing. Key West is also a historical and cultural center with great nightlife for those in your group who may not want to go fishing.

The Fish

From sailfish, tuna and other offshore species to grouper and snapper on the bottom to tarpon, bonefish and permit roaming the flats there is always something to fish for in the Lower Keys and Key West. Barracuda, sharks, jacks, cobia, and kingfish are just a few of the other species found in our waters.
