Captain Keith McGlade is a US Coast Guard-licensed mariner. He is an easy going, down to earth guy who loves his work. A ‘nature boy’ from his youth, he grew up on the Gulf coast of Florida, catching and eating every edible creature from the ocean.
Our vessel is a 34-foot Calypso with twin 225 four-stroke Honda outboards. It is equipped with advanced GPS and fish finding technology on board, as well as a livewell. The skiff is stocked with all of the Coast Guard-required safety gear, as well as a PLB (personal locator beacon).
You won’t find a captain more knowledgeable than Captain Keith. His website talks about his unique knowledge of the offshore spots because he dives on them. This is so true. We were on the same wreck as other boats hauling up fish while the other fisherman around us had no action. Captain Keith is also super friendly and kind. He’s easy to talk to and and a great teacher for the less experienced. When we got back to the ramp and Keith was filleting our fish, we saw a pretty big snook. Even though we were well over our 7 hours and we had booked the offshore trip, Keith quickly rigged up a rod to catch the snook. It was the icing on a great day. I highly recommend booking with Seafood Charters.
