I went out with my nephew for a half day trip in September, limited out on reds within the first hour. Spent the rest of the trip targeting large reds and my nephew loves throwing popping corks for sea trout which we caught quite a few of. Great day on the water with Capt Jimbo, an experienced and local guide.

Captain Steven was an amazing guide! He was excellent with my two boys who are 7 and 9 and have tons of questions. He put us on the fish all day and we were always in the action. Can't wait to come back to Cedar Key and will definitely use Captain Steven again!!

Was dragged out by friends. Yes...I said dragged out. I wasn't in the state of mind to go fishing. We had just finished a week and a half of Hurricane clean up here in Cedar Key. Being a volunteer coordinator takes a lot out of you. We went out and within 5 minutes of the boat stopping we were on... More

Saltwater Assassin charters were highly recommended and so worth it! Capt. Steven Keith was super friendly and knowledgeable. We did a half day charter and caught speckled trout, redfish and our daughter caught a sting ray that really put up a fight. We had a great time and will definitely use these guys again! Thanks again Capt. Steven - you... More

We fished a half day with Capt. Steve. He was not only knowledgable, professional and safe, you could tell he really loved what he was doing. Not only did we walk away with more meat than we knew what to do with, we left with a new buddy too!!!

Were to start, well I am in the Navy and I set this up while still on deployment. Jimbo was fantastic to work with over email since I couldn't really use the phone. He set me up for a full day's charter with Capt. Steven Keith. Steve and I connected via facebook, and I was able to talk to him... More

My son-in-law and I were interested in finding an opportunity to get out on the water and catch some fish in the near shore waters and were able to arrange a half day trip with Capt. Jim Keith. We met at the Cedar Key Marina at 8AM and headed out in search of the wily redfish. We set up next... More

Lucky to have both Keith's to charter us. Assassins with combined 41 plus years guiding experience knew exactly where to go and fished with fresh netted and live bait. Our cooler is full and fish are on the family grill this week.

This was my husband & his friend's first time fishing in Cedar Key. They researched charter fishing and decided to go with saltwater assassin's. It was the BEST decision, they caught the limit on spotted trout and a beautiful Red fish. Captain Jim and his first mate were great! Very patience & helpful. Highly recommend them. They are extremely knowledgeable... More
