PERFECT FISHING TRIP!
Key West Pro Guides are the best in the business! Everything went perfect: from the first phone call to the end of the fishing trip. Very professional yet personable. Thank you Capt. Roc for the great information you provided at the time of booking. The Marquesas have been on my 'list' for quite some time now and it really was worth it! Booking the 8hr day was the best way to go. Captain Jason is fantastic!! He asked us what we were looking for, got us on the fish and kept us there! It truly was the perfect fishing day for all of us. We caught multiple species, the shark was my favorite, and Captain Jason cleaned them up at the end of the day. We ate like royalty. If you want a safe, reliable, professional and personable guide service, this is your team! Thanks again, we will be back for more!
Great day fishing with Key West Pro Guides
This was my first time fishing out of Key West and we selected Key West Pro Guides to take us on our journey. My 2 sons and my brother joined me for the day.
Booking this trip with Captain Roc was a breeze and the information he provided was outstanding in helping me decide that this was who I wanted to charter with for the day. We met Captain Jason Wells at the dock and we were looking to do a trip to the Marquesas but given the front moving in we all agreed to change to a shorter day and stay close to the Key West area. Though the weather looked ominous It was a great decision. Key West Pro Guides was flexible and fair in shortening our trip due to winds as well as the cost due to the shorter day.
Captain Jason was one of the most professional Guides/charter captain I have experienced. He was courteous, had top notch fish knowledge and had great boat handling abilities. He was quick to share his knowledge as well as answer our inquiries and made us feel relaxed and comfortable fishing the day long. The boat was a pleasure to fish from and tackle well kept.
He started us off checking some channels just in case any tarpon were around which was not likely given the weather and immediately we switched to chumming and catching very nice Mangroves which we enjoyed very much. These were as big or bigger as I have caught and the fun we all had made our day. The fish dinner we cooked up that night was to die for. We saw shark activity on a flat as we drove by and it was just an enjoyable day on the water.
Jason moved us around to a few different areas and each one was as good as the other. We appreciated his service in keeping our tackle in line and baits being rigged and when not busy helping us directly he always was working on finding other fish and casting lines to see what he could get us into. All in all my sons and brother and I had a great Day and really appreciated the service we experienced that day.
Anytime I am in Key West I will look no further than chartering with Key West Pro Guides when I do. I would tell anyone I know to do the same and save their time checking out other operations - things were that good!
Second Trip Better than the first!
This was my second trip with Captain Jason, booked through Key West Pro Guides, only this time I took my daughters shark fishing and for some snappers. What a great experience and as usual captain Jason was awesome. My second trip with him and it was better than the first one. A true Pro and great person. As a Guide myself I sure do appreciate his knowledge and how he interacts with his clients. We will be back again next year and hope to fish with Jason for the third time! Thanks again for the memories!
Key West Pro Guides Fishing Charter
We had Captain Jason on two different trips. Cpt. Jason is extremely knowledgeable about fishing and the Key West waters. We caught lots of fish and even came back with a few fishing stories about the ones that got away. Highly recommend Key West Pro Guides. They are the best!
Super-fantastic Key West Fishing Trip
Had a super-fantastic day in Key West fishing the back country with Key West Pro Guides’ CAPT Jason Wells accompanied by my wife, son and daughter-in-law. CAPT Jason is a prince and made everything easy and fun. My wife had not been fishing since she was a girl, and CAPT Jason patiently coached her through every step of the process. (By the way, she caught the biggest fish of the day).
CAPT Jason took us to great scenic locations, (including just off a shipwreck and a private island) that also had plenty of fish. We caught Yellow Jack, Yellow Tail Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Bluefish and even a Nurse Shark which we of course released. Catching fish seems to come natural to CAPT Jason and we were fortunate to be able to take advantage of his knowledge and skills. Our boat was shipshape with plenty of room for the four of us. After we returned, CAPT Jason filleted the fish we caught and we ate it on the spot at the Hurricane Hole dockside restaurant - it was delicious!! I would also like to note that Key West Pro Guides was a great organization to deal with and CAPT Roc made booking the charter a pleasure. We are definitely planning to return in the future for another great day of fishing in Key West.
Great fun - Super Guide
First, my 15 year old son and I are not serious fishermen. When we fish back home it’s mostly for bass and catfish. It started by calling KW Pro Guides. Captain Roc was responsive, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Our captain, Captain Jason, was very knowledgeable as he grew up in Key West on the water. The boat was spotless, fast, and very stable. He took us to various spots to catch different fish. The boat ride alone was terrific. We caught some Mangrove Groupers - fun to catch and tasty (more later). Then we hooked into blue fish. They fought so hard, and there were so many, that our forearms were sore! Tons of action - and for kids, this was important. Our grouper were then cooked at the restaurant right at the dock. Delicious and can’t get any fresher! The Pina Colada was great (added a floater)! If you are a beginner or pro, this trip is a “must do” in Key West. All in all, a perfect day we will always remember.
