Overview
More
The Kay K IV was built in 2002. Air conditioned, well maintained and fast, the K KAY IV was customized to maximize fishability and comfort. We can easily handle up to 6 fishermen in the KAY K IV’s huge cockpit with it’s large live bait well. The experienced crew will guide you to and give you instructions on how to catch Mahi , Wahoo, Sailfish, Kingfish, Tuna and more. Do you want to fish the reef for yellowtail snapper, muttons snapper and groupers? We can do that! How about fishing for something different? Deep dropping (300ft to 600ft) for snapper, tilefish, porgies and snowy grouper; just a few of the tasty deepwater fish species that Captain Don has the equipment and the expertise to catch. Concerned about getting seasick or don’t want to get too far out to sea? Try our patch fishing trip. Lots of action, close to shore and in relatively calm water. We have a clean bathroom, comfortable seating and a large fish box. We also have a courteous, professional, and experienced crew that will make your trip truly memorable.

Caught lots of dolphin -(mahi-mahi}, blackfin tuna, and also yellowtail. Cap't Don & Dave really know how to find fish. The boat is super clean. I recommend them highly for a great time. We're having dolphin on the barbecue tonight. Thanks guys. Dorothy & Steve

My 21 year old son and I have fished together since he was old enough to stand, but he's always wanted to fight something bigger than the offerings of backwaters, bays and rivers. So on a recent trip to Florida, we did a little research,...More
