Equipment

Check out the equipment that we use while on charter. All of the equipment that has been chosen has been designed to make sure that you have the most favorable Florida Keys fishing experience possible.

The Big Dawg

Sea-Vee 32 powered up by twin Four Stroke Yamaha 300′s. 

The Lil Dawg

The Lil Dawg is a 23′ Pathfinder fitted with a Yamaha 150hp Four Stroke.

Rods

The Big Dawg Fishing Team uses handcrafted, custom built Knightstick rods crafted by Jim Knight.

We generally use light tackle spinning rods for offshore and reef fishing.  These are excellent for deep drops, when fishing for huge Muttons and Groupers and keeps the fight fun!!

Reels

We use an assortment of spinning and conventional Reels. The Daiwa SS 2600 is great for 12 pound spinning and helps stop Big Kings and Cobias. The Shimano Trinidad works nicely when deep fishing over wrecks. Loaded with 20 or 30 pound line, the 7500 Penn Spinning reels are good for shallow wrecks in the Gulf.
