FUNYET Charters offers a full array of fishing options for your Keys vacation. You customize your trips aboard the FUNYET, our 33′ custom built open fisherman. Our boat is equipped with all of the latest fish finding technology and plenty of room for your party of up to six passengers.
Offshore fishing starts about five miles off the coast where the reef comes to an end in about 100 feet of indigo water and where the Gulf Stream begins. Typically a combination of ballyhoo and artificial offerings are rigged and trolled between four and eight knots. Outriggers and down riggers help keep the lines properly spaced. Other offshore techniques involve using a variety of live baits, either drifted or slowly trolled behind the boat or occasionally presented from a kite. A wide variety of fish can be caught offshore with these techniques including: sailfish, dolphin (dorado, mahi mahi), wahoo, king mackerel, tuna, barracuda, and sharks.
Included in the charter: Cooler packed with ice, bait, tackle featuring Penn fishing reels, state and federal fishing licenses, and pickup service in some Lower Keys locations.
You need to bring: Sun protection, hat, polarized sunglasses, food to eat and drink, camera, and the willingness to have fun.
FUNYET Charters can arrange to have your trophy fish mounted through Gray Taxidermy, the worlds largest marine taxidermist.
