The Captain

Florida SportfishingCaptain Frank invites you to join him for a day onboard the Sonny Boy. Happy to start beginners and pleased to work with experts, Frank's goal is to take anyone on a most rewarding day of fishing. Having grown up around the water, Frank is a veteran of the Atlantic and Caribbean and has developed a sixth sense on how to find fish. He is still enthusiastic and creative using different combinations to find what it takes to get the fish to bite on a given day. Captain Frank insists on providing his passengers with only the highest levels of safety and comfort. He promotes friendly service to help the novice and experienced as well as the physically impaired.


Our Key Biscayne Sportfishing Charter Crew

Our mates are carefully chosen not only for their competence but also for their ability to make the customer feel welcome, and to help them enjoy the day. We place the highest importance on crew members who are people oriented. Out mates will do everything for you, from fetching another can of soda, to showing you how they rig ballyhoo and will even fillet your catch at the end of the day. We are in the business to offer the very best - not only fishing, but to make your trip memorable, enjoyable, and successful. The crewmembers appreciate tips if you are pleased with their service. This is left to the discretion of the client and is customary, though not obligatory.

It is customary to tip the mate 15 - 20% of the price of the charter.

sonny boy 7Where we fish will depend on the season, weather, sea conditions, and the fish.

We never know whether an individual will get seasick. It can be avoided in most cases by getting a good night's rest and not overindulging the evening before. You can also try using an over the counter seasickness medication the evening before, as well as the morning before coming to the dock (preferably one that does not make you drowsy). Your doctor can also prescribe a patch to prevent seasickness.
