Key West Florida Fishing – Compass Rose Charters

Capt. Mike Weinhofer Key West, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Key West Florida is a top sportfishing destination – for good reason.  In Key West you can experience everything from deep sea fishing or light tackle offshore fishing to backcountry and flats fishing.  There is something for everyone.  It is also home to Captain Mike Weinhofer and Key West Florida Fishing Charters.  

 

Captain Mike and his experienced crew know these waters like the back of their hand.  They love to share their knowledge with their guests.  At Key West Florida Fishing Charters they have developed a unique style of fishing that creates a more hands on, enjoyable experience.  

 

Captain Mike welcomes you aboard the Compass Rose, the largest center console boat in Key West.  She is a 40ft Seahunter with twin 350hp Yamaha engines to get you to the fish quickly and smoothly.  She is equipped with a full array of the latest electronics and all necessary safety gear.  On board you will also find three livewells with over 250 gallons of live bait and below deck there is a full toilet for comfort and privacy.  She was designed by fisherman for fisherman to be the ultimate fishing machine.

 

Key West Florida Fishing Charters provides top of the line equipment so you can have an enjoyable and successful day on the water.  Your fishing license, rods, reels, tackle, fly fishing equipment, lures and fresh or live bait are all included.  You can keep your catch and the crew will clean and fillet it for you.  Feel free to bring your favorite snacks and drinks to enjoy on your trip.  Captain Mike has coolers and ice onboard for you to store them.  He also recommends you bring sunblock, polarized sunglasses, light jacket, camera, and bags to take your catch home. 

 

Whether sight fishing for sailfish, trolling for Mahi Mahi or fishing for tarpon,

Captain Mike and Key West Florida Fishing Charters like to run a different type of charter – one where the customer is involved. You’re not just sitting in a chair and reeling in fish; you hook your own fish and fight it all yourself. The crew is there to teach you to help make you a better angler. Their motto is Patience for the beginner and Competence for the expert.  The only thing they ask is that if you are not having fun let them know immediately so they can work to fix it.  

 

Book today and join Captain Mike aboard the Compass Rose for a fishing adventure like no other.
