Pepe took us out into the Key West Harbor in May to fish for tarpon. He out worked every other boat in the harbor and the reward was three tarpon between 100 and 150 pounds.

It was a great day out on the water. We met up with Captain Ang and took off. Got to see what it was like to catch pin fish in one of their bait traps. Kinda reminded me of catching minnies to go fishing back home. But anyway, we then did some fishing not too far out and caught some... More

Two days of fishing with Capt. Pepe was more than we could ask for. He is the perfect blend of a great fishing guide and a wonderful conversationalist. We caught dinner both days and ended by landing a couple of big (to us) sharks. What an exciting treat! Next time we visit Key West, we will definitely charter with him... More

Captain Pepe had a medical emergency in Miami and hooked us up with Captain Ange who was utterly amazing. My husband caught his first ever Tarpon and had three or four other hookups. Captain Ange worked her butt off to provide us with an amazing experience. We were very lucky having the clouds with us all day and the current... More

I plan a Key West vacation around a tarpon trip and was disappointed to learn that the guide I had been using was moving to the west coast. Fortnuately, he recommended I charter a trip with Captain Pepe Gonzalez and I was glad I took his advice. In addition to being a great guy, Pepe is an outstanding guide and... More

I have fished offshore since I was a young boy. Captain Pepe is the best guide I have ever been with. His concern is for your safety first, putting you on fish that you want, and customer service. I will never fish with another guide in Key West other than Pepe. He is a consummate professional, and family man. You... More

I went two days with this fishing guide. The first day he did everything he could to get me on tarpon. Saw a lot of Tarpon but we just could not get them to bite. The second trip out we caught 3 large tarpon, a lemon shark and hook a black tip shark. We also had a bull shark try... More
