I especially enjoy working with beginning anglers and families from all over the world. Getting kids hooked on fishing is awesome; kids are the future of sport fishing. We are located at Tavernier Creek Marina (http://mytaverniercreekmarina.com/amenities.html )Mile Marker 90.8.
Whether you are an experienced fisherman or have never cast a line, I promise a time you will not forget. Come find out why Islamorada is known worldwide as “The Sport Fishing Capital of the World”.

This past weekend we ventured past the reef on all trips targeting Mahi Mahi (dolphin) and Blackfin Tuna. I am happy to report the Blackfin Tuna schools are starting to show up. On Friday the dolphin fishing was awesome for Good Karma. We found a nice 32 lb. Bull Dolphin and on the way in we found another 15 lb. Bull dolphin along with bunch of nice size school fish.
On Saturday and Sunday 1/2 day afternoon trips we found a lot dolphin but they had the late summertime "lockjaw" so we hit my tuna spots and they produced some nice Blackfin Tunas for the dinner table. Here is Allison with her Sunday evening catch.
If you love catching and eating grouper as much I do then give me a call. I will teach you about the Good Karma "Grouper Bomb" and hopefully make your arms very sore from fighting these monster fish.
Check out this rare Hammerhead Shark that swam up to our boat in 55 ft. of water. Anything can happen out there so bring your cameras!

Just a short 10-15 minute ride from Tavernier Creek Marina on the deep reefs we will anchor up & chum for Yellowtail, Mutton Snappers, & Groupers. These fish really like to eat when presented with the right bait and chumming techniques. On 1/2 day trips I like to get you fishing right away, therefore I have fresh bait already prepared for the trip.
On charters we can now add deep dropping to the mix for tasty deep water snappers, groupers and much more.
What to expect this Summer Offshore (15-20 Miles) in the Upper Florida Keys
Written by Capt. Ryan on June 30 2014
Offshore fishing requires a lot of patience; remember we are big game hunting. Some days the fish will literally eat anything, but then there are other days where it takes time to find the fish. Most offshore fish such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish and Tuna don’t take up full time residence in our waters. Check out our Florida Keys Fish calendar before planning a trip or just give me a call at 305-619-2126 & ask me what’s happening offshore in the Florida Keys.
Good Karma is set up for the ultimate night time fishing adventure.
Seadek Customized Fishing Deck/Platform
SeaDek provides not only an exceptional traction surface but also lessens the fatigue brought on by prolonged standing while fishing. If you have knee or back problems then you are going to love fishing on Good Karma. Below are some key points about SeaDek:
- Exceptional traction even when wet
- Unparalleled comfort when standing, walking or leaning on the surface of the boat
- Shock absorption, which decreases fatigue during a day of fishing on the reef and trolling offshore.
- UV Protected
Garmin "Chirp" Depth Finding
On each trip we run 2 state of the art Garmin depth/chart plotter systems with one being the new 2013 Garmin "Chirp" system. We also utilize the Garmin GHP 10 Autopilot system to keep us dialed in on the fish.
Garmin GXM/Sirius Radio, Weather and Sea Surface Imaging(SST Charts)
Having updated weather and being dialed in on the sea surface temperature is critical. Good Karma is equipped with a Garmin GXM 51 XM/Sirius weather/radio receiver. We are now getting continuous weather feeds & have and have updated real time Sea Sea Surface temperatures at our finger tips. Having sea surface temperature imaging on our Garmin screens allows us to see dynamic changes in offshore waters.
Finally decided to get some fishing shirts made up. Check it out. If you want to order one, for "Good Karma" (laughing) contact me for pricing.
