Key West Party Boat Fishing is a very popular pastime with locals and visitors alike. It is the most economical way to get out fishing, and with a good captain and a little luck, you will haul in much the same quantity and quality of fish as on a far more expensive reef or wreck fishing charter.
A Party Boat can be ideal if you have a large group of friends who want to go fishing together, or several kids to take fishing, or if you just want an easy, cheap way to get out and get a line in the water. Best In Key West can hook you up with the top Key West Party Boats so you can have a good time and bring home a fish dinner without breaking the bank.
Most fishermen who live anywhere near saltwater have been out fishing on a Party Boat. These large recreational fishing vessels can carry anywhere from 10 to 100 people on drift or bottom fishing trips, and are often called “Head-Boats” because they charge a fixed price person (per head) for regularly scheduled fishing trips. Party Boats have been operating out of Key West’s historic charter boat row for over 50 years, showing new fisher-people and experienced anglers alike great times on the rich fishing grounds off Key West.
On a Best In Key West Party Boat Trip, you will go out with an experienced captain and crew who will do their best to get the boat over the fish and let everyone catch a few. Crew members will be on hand to help new fishermen with their equipment, including baiting hooks, boating fish, and removing fish from hooks. You will be fishing along the railing with a number of other people, and a few tangles and difficulties are common, but are generally handled with good humor, grace, and help from the crew.
Depending on the conditions, the captain may have you drop baits to the bottom over a reef or a wreck, or you may fish as the boat drifts slowly over a good spot. You can expect to catch many types of reef fish, with the most common being various Snapper species, Groupers, Porgies, Grunts, Hog Fish, Mackerel, and Sharks. However, part of the fun of Party Boat Fishing is that so many lines in the water nearly always result in something unusual being pulled up. Sometimes a Best In Key West Party Boat Fishing trip turns into a regular marine biology lesson!
Whether you are a fishing expert looking to drop a line on the cheap, a novice looking for some fun and a boat trip, or a Mom/Dad with kids who want to catch fish, it is hard to go wrong with a Key West Party Boat Fishing trip. Book yours today at Best In Key West.
