    What a time!! Capt Mike and his mate/son Justin were a great team and limited us out on blackfin within a few hours! Spent the rest of the day trying to hook up with a sail! Was a terrific time and great experience and we went home with a ton of meat. As a fisherman myself, wouldn’t hesitate to go back out with these guys, they got it down!!

    I have fished all over and I went with Captain Mike today. They were the hardest working boat I ever went on. They went above and beyond to get my friend his first sailfish and I highly recommend if your ever in Key West and want to have one of the best the fishing trips of your life go on the Helm! You will not be disappointed.

    These guys are great father and son team. They know what they’re doing. They will definitely put you on the fish. We will be back in July for another charter.. Thanks for a great trip Mike.

    Had an absolute blast and was able to catch a dozen Mahi on a 6 hour trip! Capt Mike was great on the phone and honest about conditions and duration of the trip to catch the fish we wanted - he was spot on! His first mate and son, Justin, was extremely impressive and everything exceeded our expectations! We are both very novice but had an amazing time - a private charter is the way to go with these guys running the show! Definitely will be back for more next time we’re in the Keys!

    This fishing trip was incredible! Definitely worth every penny. Three of us couples went our men are avid outdoorsman/ fisherman. Captain Mike and his son and first mate Justin were awesome from the get go. They came recommended to us by a friend who lived in the area, so even though they were booked they squeezed us in one afternoon for a five hour trip. We were able to bring snack, beverages, and use their coolers if we needed. They were so attentive to the ocean and their communication between each other and other vessels was incredible. They actually WANT you to catch as many fish as possible. We caught 16-17 Mahi (13 keepers), 4-5 Bonita, and a huge Barracuda! When we docked they cleaned all the Mahi and supplied us with bags to hold the fillets and information for how to get it all the way back home to Indiana. They were professional, fun and definitely made it a memorable trip that we will all remember.
