The Kay K IV was built in 2002. Air conditioned, well maintained and fast, the K KAY IV was customized to maximize fishability and comfort. We can easily handle up to 6 fishermen in the KAY K IV’s huge cockpit with it’s large live bait well. The experienced crew will guide you to and give you instructions on how to catch Mahi , Wahoo, Sailfish, Kingfish, Tuna and more. Do you want to fish the reef for yellowtail snapper, muttons snapper and groupers? We can do that! How about fishing for something different? Deep dropping (300ft to 600ft) for snapper, tilefish, porgies and snowy grouper; just a few of the tasty deepwater fish species that Captain Don has the equipment and the expertise to catch. Concerned about getting seasick or don’t want to get too far out to sea? Try our patch fishing trip. Lots of action, close to shore and in relatively calm water. We have a clean bathroom, comfortable seating and a large fish box. We also have a courteous, professional, and experienced crew that will make your trip truly memorable.

We had a great full day with Captain Don down in Islamorada, FL over the Labor Day weekend. This was a surprise anniversary fishing trip for my husband and we caught plenty of fish. Captain Don's mate Tony was really great. He worked very hard, knew what he was doing and was very friendly. Tony even made a dinner reservation... More

Went out on the KAY K IV on August 25th with Captain Don and his first mate Tony. Very professional and Capt. Don put us right on the fish! Ended up coming back with 27 Dolphin and 7 Tuna. I recommend anybody wanting to catch some fish to go out with these guys! Will be telling everyone about this trip!

If anyone is looking for a charter trip this is the one to take. No question. The boat is immaculate, air conditioned cabin and everything works. We left at 0615 and stopped to catch live bait. That was the key to our success. We caught about a half dozen dolphin by 930 am then Capt Don took us out 22... More

What a fantastic trip! 37 yellowtail snapper on a half day fishing trip. We all became quite proficient fishermen, thanks to the patience and guidance of Captain Don and Tony. My son even wrestled the line with a shark! (I'm glad this was brief and the shark broke the line). We have fished in many places, and we all felt... More
