Awesome past 2 days.  Yesterday clients  filled the cooler with mutton snappers in the fresh north breeze. The water was a little chilly but they didn't give a shit. 
Caught this wahoo on the @baitstrips this morning before the south breeze cranked and shook the  new industrial size Publix traffic lights. 
I prefer using the large size Baitstrips. That silver holographic 🔥.
We just got the new @seaworxfishing long shank #12 in the shop at Tavernier Creek Marina. 
Rigged this #12 just like the YouTube video on my channel. Awesome hooks💯  First time using them today. They work. 
Since I released that Baitstrips and long shank planer hook rigging video on my channel I have received numerous emails and direct messages thanking me for helping them. Very cool. 🇺🇸🙏
Coming Soon💥
Launching a 8 week grouper and mutton intensive. Anchor depths of  55 to 175 ft for the spring spawn. Going to be loaded. Something special will be included👍
Have fun at the Nautical beer at Founders. Pick up some 14 oz bank sinkers from my friend Tim "The Lead Guy"

The Best Fishing Charter In Key Largo

I’ve been coming down to the Keys for years, and have fished with a number of guides over this time. It was around 2012 when I first fished with Captain Ryan aboard the Good Karma, and he’s been my go to guide since.  During my recent trip to the keys I spent two days fishing with Capt. Ryan. On our first day we were joined by my 12-year-old daughter, and on the second it was just Capt. Ryan and me.

Jeff from VT

 

I’ve been fishing all my life so when I came to the Key Largo for the first time I knew I couldn’t leave without doing some fishing. I chose Capt. Ryan based on a recommendation from a local tackle shop and not only did he put me on the fish, we had an excellent time as well. He has excellent knowledge of the fishery, a great feel for changing conditions and the ability to put the two together to make things happen.

Scott from NY

Capt. Ryan is truly are a remarkable charter captain, this was my second charter with him. This time around I brought my long time friends for a guys weekend. I consider Capt. Ryan the “King of the Snapper Fishing” as his techniques are something you will not on Sportfishing TV show or magazine, best yet he will teach you every detail about his style of fishing during the trip. On this trip my friends and I caught a box full of quality Mutton Snappers.

Booking and Cancellation Policy

Leave the bad attitudes at home.  Good vibes only. 

We may require a valid credit card to hold your charter, but we don’t bill your card before the charter or withhold a deposit. If you cancel the night before the charter, the morning of, or do not show up, we will bill you the total amount of the charter.. To make a reservation, please email me at goodkarmaryan@gmail.com. I will return your email within 24-36 hours after you get confirmation from me via email or you may text me.  I ask all my clients to text me at 305-619-2126 or email me at goodkarmaryan@gmail.com 3-5 days before the fishing trip. The closer we get to the date of the fishing trip the more I know about the weather and will provide you with a fishing update.

Good Karma does not penalize clients if we cancel due to weather or mechanical issues. They are for safety reasons, things I cannot control, and never a fun discussion. I love to fish and work with my clients. If the weather looks horrible, I will call you well in advance to discuss your options. I will work to reschedule your charter; if it is not possible, I will cancel it with no penalty. 

I am not responsible for finding a replacement charter for you, even though I refer you to other marinas. I am also not responsible for the cost of your vacation or time off work. Again, it is never a fun discussion as I love fishing and look forward to taking my clients. I realize most people know this (99.9%), and I appreciate that. Thank you! 

If you have knee or back problems or have history of being seasick I highly recommend sourcing another charter operation. 

Using any GPS or cellular tracking phones is stealing from Good Karma Sportfishing. Therefore, these devices are not allowed on the boat. 

No photos are allowed of my gear, and I encourage you to put away your phones and shut them off during the fishing charter. I am always honest about the weather and want you to have fun. Please keep in mind that I am a fisherman and not a magician. Most captains do not care and will take your money; I care. I will be honest about the weather and the fishing, it may not be want you to hear, but that is how I operate my Florida Keys fishing charter business.
