Key West Fishing Charter Boat

Key West Fishing Charter Boat Southbound retruning from fishing Key West catching Sailfish, Wahoo, Dolphin, Barracuda, Snapper, Grouper, Tarpon and more


Having the right tackle for different anglers and conditions is important. On the SOUTHBOUND  we offer a wide range of tackle so we can accommodate both the beginner and the seasoned angler. We have everything from 80 lb. trolling rods to 15 lb. spinning reels.  Our preferred tackle while trolling is 30 lb. test line. This has proven to be a great all around line size. It's not too small for the big fish and still light enough to allow smaller fish to put up a great fight. We've successfully landed Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Dolphin, Barracuda, Tuna, Grouper and Snapper fishing with 30 lb. tackle. For the more experienced angler, 15 and 20 lb. spinning tackle is available.


The Key West fishing charter boat SOUTHBOUND is a 40 ft. custom fiberglass sport fisherman built in Key West for the waters of Key West. The  Southbound has a 14 ft. beam (width) to give it a comfortable, stable ride on the water and a roomy back deck that can support 5 fishing chairs comfortably. The SOUTHBOUND has the latest in marine electronics including GPS, Loran, Radar,Color Depth Sounder, VHF Radio, CB, and Cell phone. The SOUTHBOUND is equipped with a stereo CD player, so if you would like to listen to music,  please bring your favorite CD's and unless it's really bad, we'll play it for you.

Less running time means more Fishing time!!

700Hp generated  by SOUTHBOUNDS  twin Caterpillar diesel engines gives Southbound the speed to get to the fishing grounds faster.  With a top speed of 27 kts and a 20 kt cruise, you'll be fishing before other boats get there!


As Captain and owner of the SOUTHBOUND, I've been fishing the waters of Key West for over 30+years. I have a U.S. Coast Guard  Masters Captains License that allows me to operate vessels up to 100 tons. Before owning the SOUTHBOUND,  operated the M/V Can't Miss, a 75 ft bottom fishing boat here in Key West.

ALL bait, tackle and fishing licenses are included in the cost of a charter. Customers bring their own food and drink, however, cooler space and the ice to keep it cold are provided.
