What I had pictured is the offshore fishing we've done in St Lucia and in Belize, not the 4-6 foot swells we went out in! It was a rough ride, but once we got to our first stop, Cole caught a baby strawberry grouper right off the bat!

Our goal was to catch grouper and sharks and do some snorkeling. We hooked multiple sharks who frayed the line, and we never got them in the boat, but they sure were fun to try to reel in! We ended up catching yellow tail snapper, Spanish mackerel and spear fished for hogfish.

At the first stop, Our daughter started feeling sick and grumpy. Once we got going to the second stop, Captain Michelle offered to let her drive the boat and she perked right up! Captain Michelle was very knowledgeable and loved on our kids all day! She dove and brought up lobsters and other items for them to see. The 3 kids-aged 4,6, and 8 loved learning, fishing and snorkeling.

Mr. Mike (Captain Michelle's first mate) and Captain Michelle were amazing with the kids-very patient and kind, and set out to make their day fabulous! We had such a fun time and totally recommend Spear It Charters for your Florida Keys charter!

Went out with Michelle and Mike first week of June 2017 with 3 kids (ages 5-9). Both Michelle and Mike were incredibly kid friendly and my boys had a great experience. Even caught fish off their dock while Mike was cleaning catch. It was nice leaving from a private residence/dock instead of the busy marinas and we enjoyed the boat ride through the mangroves. Would highly recommend to any family.

An excellent way to experience high quality fishing while making a lifetime memories with you family or friends.
The crow is 100% professional and they will lead to those monsters from the deep.
Highly recommended and worth every penny!

My son and I fished with Capt. Michelle and her husband on a 4 hour charter. We caught lots of large yellowtail snappers, a large black grouper and a cero. They were great hosts, always having bait ready as well as food and refreshments.

They filleted the catch and gave us ice and a cooler for the fish. They gave us a couple of snappers to take to a nearby restaurant while they finished cleaning the remaining catch. Bobalu (the restaurant) fried them up and they were delicious. I highly recommend Spear It! Couldn't be nicer people.

If you're searching for a fishing charter in the Key West area, look no further than Spear-It Charters! My wife & I (we booked a half-day trip on April 25) were treated to a fabulous experience with Cpt. Michelle & Mike, who will exceed your expectations and perhaps even restore your confidence in what a successful day on the water should be like! Before, during and after our fishing trip we received courteous & prompt updates regarding weather forecasts, sea conditions, proper fishing techniques, and of course we caught LOTS of fish (and they cleaned and packed them on ice)! They were very patient & accommodating in every way!

AThe boat can take 1-6 guests and their dock is located "in the back yard" on a private canal in Geiger Key, about a 15 min drive North of the Key West Airport. Looking forward to trying "spear fishing" on our next trip!
