    I'm looking for a skipper in Key West (or lower keys) whose specialty is bottom/reef/wreck fishing for grouper & snapper...Any references?

    I highly recommend "Spear One" with Capt Steve Rodgers. He is a local guy that has grown up fishing and diving out of Key West.

    Key West fishing charters aboard Spear One - Key West deep sea fishing, offshore fly fishing - sailfish, tuna, wahoo, mahi, snapper, grouper and kingfish

    I get nothing for recommending him to you. I just know he is one of the best offshore guides there. If you want to try flats fishing Steve Impallomeni is one of the best. Same thing...local guy who's mom was an inshore guide before he was an inshore guide.

    Fishing Charter Key West, FL with Capt Steve Impallomeni - Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit

    Those two guys are either on or in the waters around Key West almost every day of the year.

    Steve Rodgers of "Spear One Charters" is excellent. No better bottom fisherman by far... Ralph Delph Sr. & Jr. are also excellent all around choices. The only problem with these guys is that they are probably booked solid for the season a year in advance... Give them a call... you never know.

    Yes, the Delph's are great also. Ralphs son wins a lot of the big Kingfish tourny's in that part of the world
