family manatee tricky nurse one thrill after another

One day that we will all not soon forget we enjoyed two of the best things Key West has to offer, snorkeling and fishing. Why not reel in a fish and soar through the water along side me, weightless, in a warm sea of Paradise. I watched this 25 minute battle with a reluctant nurse shark that we let go after snapping a few shots. Earlier this smart shark wrapped it's self around something at the reef and hoped that this hasty act of trickery, would allow for his escape, but he was no match for this master angler and my great fishing gear. Its a great feeling, a confidence boost when you pitted yourself up against a fish. Come take one on, let me make it happen for you, guarantied, or your money back, call me, Capt Chuck 305 619 0731

intense rollers sway us gently on a calm sea blanket

We jumped in the warm waters and snorkeled the reef. If you want to see some of my journey take a peek, be me and see the fun that awaits your eager eyes and yes its million times better in real life if you are wondering what you will see.
The fishing was great, what fun we had filling the bucket. Later back were we feed the tarpons we feed a huge Goliath, 350 pounds plus, he is a snow bird so its good to see him again. Come meet him its like feeding a whale by hand, he loves feedings out of our hands, he was more fun to feed than the tarpons. Come show some love to my Goliath grouper friend he will blow your mind.

stingray swims with us in a beautiful oceanwilderness

Two 12 year old girls, made their way to the reef, following me. We all got to swim with a stingray which was the highlight of the snorkeling. We also saw a variety of fish, some angels and blue tangs. The waves thrust us about making it really exciting on the trip out to the reef and as we came in.

The morning fishing was awesome we landed a few groupers, a huge Green moray eel, a good size barracuda and tons of other fish filling the bucket for our feeding the tarpon by hand, fun later.

honeymoon couple enjoys ocean snorkeling& fishing

We plunged into the sea, schools of gaint jacks swiming just inches from us. Its that time of year for these tuna looking fish, to show their faces. Great fishing, landing blue runners, some french and other snapers.

stingray& baracuda hang out symbiotically working

I was one of the only few boats out at the reef this Thanksgiving Day. The waves tore across the reef with tons of power pushing us around gently, like being tossed across your bedroom. Around me the first time snorkelers hovered at my sides, girls on one of life's most thrilling experiences, when I look about, how spectacular it is for me, its got to be 1000 times better for first timers.
The new treble hooks came in handy, fish had no chance,
Give a person a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a person to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. I like teaching, it didn't take much and at the end of the day all were great fisher persons, filling the bucket ,for the hungry tarpons awaiting are thanksgiving hands, back at there under sea hangout, later each of us individually reached out, putting fish in there mouths
giving tarpons happy full bellies

Just another day in Paradise......, Key West is truly magnificent her sky's and sea matched, like a cool clothing outfit around the yacht. Our island wonders did runway flirting with our eyes all around us. We had some magnificent battles filling the bucket with fish.

very comfy key west sleeping shark snorkel sighting

Its neat to have the sea life react with you, interacting in their own manor, coming closer checking you out as you do the same. I watched this french angel as he comes up to me to say hi its hard to imagine what goes through a fishes head, its like the same thing going through mine, curiosity in a nut shell. Click on the video below, watch and see this phenomenon its as close as you can get to the real thing, but the real thing is million times better in so many ways.
Fishing was a smorgasbord of yellow tails, we through three out as bait on wire leaders. There was some rod battling going on throught the day with the bait fish getting eaten by feirce teeth. hungering for yellow tail snappers. This is one of their favorite survival foods. They carefully take on the challenge out of boardom kind of knowing what is involved in this dangling fancy dinner at the end of our fishing lines baited with hooks. Suspecting what wait, a caught pierce of their body is what they avoid, yet get their food. Today the big fish played us, guess they win some, not when you guys get out there with me. I would have won if I had not run out of treble hooks. Come snorkel and fish with me, with your help we can get beat these monster fish bait thieves.

rough sea found some folks to cover fuel off we went

My love of this ocean stuff is extreme, most boats stayed in today, not me, I was able to talk some folks into exploring my playground seven miles out to sea. It was over 6ft seas past the reef, hang on folks, better than any ride at Walt Disney world. As the Delphine rocked wildly, hastily as soon as we moored at the reef my body hit the water, leaving my crew girl Nikki to watch the yacht sitting there rocking away. As soon as I hit the water, it was like awww, comfortable, the waters is still warm, it really never gets colder than 70 degrees year round. Really nice compared to a rocking boat a few waves splashed over my head, good thing all my snorkel equipment for me and my people have splash guards. We saw some mammoth groupers couldn't wait to get back to catch some. Fishing was awesome, we came in shore to slay some unsuspecting hungry fish. The current was at slack tide, making it way to easy to fill the fish bucket, the usual rod bending frenzy aboard the Delphine.

huge leather back super friendly Turtle around 500lb

I ran into a couple guys on Duval and said lets
go yachting. Wow, what fun we had battling some feisty fish. In all my years of diving I have never seen such a massive turtle, he probably hung out with president Lincoln as a kid. Seeing stuff like this
is such a rush that is so intense.

green monster moray eel slithers fiercely at our feet

Yesterday's charter was to much fun for my shipmates they decided to go out on a new adventure today. This time we were really eager to bring in some of Atlantic's bounty's and that's just what we did. We battling all kinds of fish, savoring every minute of this spectacular sunny Key West day. Its always a joy landing something, not knowing what's at the end of your fishing line awaiting. As you baited the fish hook and wait for that yank, you enjoying a cool drink with a nice breeze and a ocean view beyond belief, with the sun gently warming our faces. This beautiful day is such a high in so many ways, come take in some excitement, your yacht for the day, the Delphine, awaits.

more fun in the sun enjoying key wests awesomeness

We made our way to the best reef in the lower keys, as we were swimming a very curious cuda swam with us, putting a bit of a scare in some of my fellow snorkelers. There really is nothing to fear with these toothy creatures, they do injure lots of people, but that's from food poisoning. Some say that a cud under two feet good is good to eat, its Russian roulette if you ask me.
The fishing was fun we were reeling in all kinds of fish, the water was so clear making it easy to look down you could almost see what was going after your bait. We took our bucket of fish to feed the tarpons and found a manatee who came around. He wanted all the attention making it easy to touch his bearded mug.

Admiral's dautghter comes sea with some Coasties

Its always fun to have some local people aboard. We swam the reef, enjoying the tons of fish fluttering about the reef, a school of parrot fish swam with us for awhile. Its really neat to watch a school of these colorful fellows, they look at one another as if they are a brother or sister, tight, each doing alot of chomping, they are moving in harmony as one.
The chumb bag hit the water with the usual flutter of fish scurring for Capt Chuck's easy to get free tasty treats. We landed tons of fish, my hands worked really hard making wire luers, Unfortunately some of the oceans sharpest teeth worked their way through a lot of my best made stuff they gradually worked their way up to my strongest wire that could handle jaws . We didn't caught any monster fish today, but instead we caught a lot of fish, one of the girls caught three huge yellow tails, enough to feed all of us.
This lovely sunset is a perk to the afternoon charter, we were astounded by its beauty as we came in.

43 fish caught by all girl anglers at boca chica cut

At my spot we caught a lots of fish with a sweet endless view that awestruck me as usual as I looked into the distance, when I had a chance. I found myself very busy unhooking caught fish, making up leaders for some busy fishing poles. It was just a really comfortable non rocking day of fish slaying. The time changed moving to one hour early seem to effect my tarpon feeding spot, my tarpon friends most cruised on making tarpon feeding a slow go.

36 fish caught filling bucket tarpons chowed down

The wind was still up to no good as we headed out to sea to my other spot for fishing. Once the chum bag hit the water, fish enveloped the surroundings of the Delphine at our fishing spot, every few minutes it was, whoops, got another one, someone said. We were running out of room in the bucket for all these fish as we piled them in the boat. Later we dove in to see lots of fish about, a huge barracuda was watching the schools with their hungry mouths eating my bits of fish that were escaping from the chum bag in the current that was off the stern of the yacht. The water was mighty refreshing as always, we all hung out on the stern sitting or standing comfortably looking out across the endless view of turquoise sea, aah yes Paradise we all thought and I said.

endless Keys, warm wind whistling, rigging filling sails

Just another wild day in Paradise. So when you get lemons, you make lemonade and that's just what's up. A wild time for some Americas cup style, rail dipping, windy fun stuff off Key Kest. It's the next best thing to snorkeling and fishing since its the slow season. I guess you are all working hard out there at your different jobs, somewhere, the reef needs us to visit soon something fierce, come to Key West.------------------------ Thanks
