My three sons, ages 27, 23, and 23 spent a fun 3/4 day with Captain David Irwin on his 24 foot Tarpon/Bay Boat during our stay in Key West. My sons and I like to fish, and have done so in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and other venues, as parts of our vacations together. We spoke with Captain Dave the night before our trip, and discussed catching some fish to eat, and then perhaps catching some Barracuda and sharks. We went to the shallows around some of the nearby islands where we were the only boat in sight. Captain Dave knew the waters well, being a native of Key West, and negotiated the channels easily right up to the Mangroves on the islands. Although we have fishing experience, he gave us some helpful tips on casting into the shallow water to draw out the larger Mangrove snapper in only a few feet of water. We caught six nice Mangrove Snapper that he later cleaned, and they made for a wonderful meal that we grilled when we returned to shore. We also caught several barracuda, saw Lemon Sharks, and even had an experience of a Grouper eating one of the Snapper we had hooked before we could land him. Captain Dave was entertaining, accommodating and knowledgeable, and we had a great time!
