Was kind of randomly stopped by Captain Joe at the dock at Robbie's in Islamorada where I assumed I was gonna walk onto their party boat (which none of us knew at the time was already sold out), but Joe explained to me that two people canceled on his private charter and asked if I wanted to partake in a...

Ive been out with captain Joe on the dirty boat a handful of times. The man knows what he's doing! Consistently able to deliver targeted species, and he's always got some tricks up his sleeve if the bight slows down. Not to mention he's personable and always has a professional crew. From putting us on double header 20lb dolphin to... More

Went to the keys for our honeymoon. The wife had never been on a open water fishing charter. They took us out to the reef to catch my favorite dish's fish. Yellowtail Snapper. I was impressed with their technique to catch them. Would definitely book another charter with John & Kit!

While the weather played against us in the morning, Capt Joe did what he could to make our day work out. Joe & Kit did everything they could to accommodate us as well as our kids (7 & 9 yrs old) we may not have caught a cooler full but Capt Joe put us on some fish and the kids... More

After much researching for knowledgeable charters that can find fish we ended up on The Dirty Boat Captained by Capt. Joe Saba. We decided to do a split charter (he was the only that did them) and were connected with a couple that had been charter fishing all over the Keys and had only used Capt. Joe's boat now because...

Capt. Joe and first mate, Kit were really great with me and my family. My children really wanted to catch sportfish, but I'm a seasoned angler and I know how hard chartering really is. Joe and crew were great, They made it a point to catch a few tuna to get the momentum going and then settled in for the... More

My mom, brother and I went on a full day split charter with Capt. Joe and the first mate Kitt. The weather was horrible and stormy that day so Joe talked to us about other options and we decided to go reef fishing instead of offshore (which would be a lot tougher). We started off trying to catch some Yellowtail... More

Joe and Kit were great to our family! They both seemed to be having a great time. They were patient with our rookies, and had our daughter a fishing pro! I would definitely recommend their charter for a great time fishing the Keys!
