Sportfishing Charters - Key West

High Class Hooker

Experience offshore sportfishing at its finest aboard what we think you’ll agree is Key West’s best, most comfortable, and most luxurious 6-pack charter boat – High Class Hooker.

A quick four-hour trip to beautiful blue/green nearshore waters, on or just off the reef? Or a longer, more adventurous full-day trip to the deeper, purple-blue waters out past our famous “Wood’s Wall?” We can do it comfortably and with style!

Sailfish, Dolphin (mahi-mahi), Wahoo, Blackfin tuna, Blue or white marlin, Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish, all those fish, and many more, are here year-round. It’s just a matter of numbers and likelihood, usually determined by the prevailing weather and current conditions at the time. Check out our guide below for some more info on some of our favorite fish to target.

Call in a food order in advance and have it delivered to the docks the morning before your trip!



The name Buddy Davis means only the finest in marine craftsmanship and it’s one of the best rough water boats ever built. We can give you a nice, dry ride on days when other boats will have to consider staying at the dock, as well as comfort well beyond what you would normally expect to find in a “6-pack” charter boat! And, because of her twin 735 HP Detroit 8V92 diesel engines, we can get you to the fish fast!

Captains of the High Class Hooker
Longtime High Class Hooker First Mate, Capt. Jerry Pope along with his wife Capt. Susanna Pope took the helm after original owner Gene Chrzanowski passed in May 2017. Gene was a mentor and true friend to many. It's an honor and a privilege to be able to continue on his legacy. 
The High Class Hooker Adventure Continues

The High Class Hooker has been a staple on the harbor walk outside of A&B Lobster House for over 15 years now. The Hooker and Crew have built a reputation for professional friendly sportfishing charters that knows how to bring in fish. Much of our clientele are repeat visitors who come back to fish with us year after year.

We owe much of that success to our mates. And we have the best! We pride ourselves on having fun-loving mates who not only do a great job catching fish, but also provide you with the whole Key West fishing and life-style experience.

High Class Hooker – A Reel Good Time

Just because we have the ultimate fishing machine doesn’t mean that you have to be a serious, experienced angler to have a great time. Nothing could be further from the truth. While we’ll be happy to let you do as much as you want, we’ll do all the “dirty work” for you if you prefer. You can just enjoy bringing in the big ones after we hook ’em up. As a matter of fact, some of our favorite trips tend to be with beginners and especially kids. They just seem to get a much bigger kick out of the whole experience than customers who think they know it all and/or have done it all (and, quite frankly, they just tend to follow our instructions better so that  we get better results.) Remember, this is supposed to “recreational fishing.” The bottom line is that our goal is for everyone to have FUN, including the crew, and we’ll do everything we can to make that happen.

Nice Mahi! Not bad for a first time hooker.
