Florida Keys Fishing with Gringo Charters and Captain Carlos

Meet the Captain

As a child Capt. Carlos spent every summer fishing, diving and exploring in the Florida Keys. These early days laid the groundwork for a life on the water.

Capt. Carlos has been making a living fishing in the Upper Keys since 1991. He started out as a mate learning the ropes from the top captains in the area. In 1994 he obtained his captain’s license and began running large offshore fishing boats from both Key Largo and Islamorada.

In 2008 he moved away from charter boats and focused on the niche of running a multitude of private boats for private clients from Ocean Reef to Marathon. During his free time he focused on exploring the backcountry and learned that he loved that side of the island just as much as the oceanside.

What others say about Captain Carlos

Between February and August I’ve fished with Carlos 15 times and he ALWAYS puts us on the fish and a huge variety of fish as well.  Very accomplished capt. and a great personality.  Carlos is a 10 in my book!!!!

My son and I have fished with Capt. Carlos 12-15 times a year for a few years and always catch fish.  Snapper, grouper, mahi, tuna etc. Even if it’s blowing he always finds fish w/o getting beat up.  If you’re a master angler or novice he adjusts to your skills.

Carlos is an excellent fishing guide and good companion.  You will enjoy your time with him.
