Captain Randy Towe

Since 1984 Randy has been based out of Islamorada fishing both Offshore and the Backcountry. His real specialty is making sure you have a great day of fishing.

As Randy likes to say : “You can’t catch em sitting on the couch.”

Randy loves to share all that he has learned on the water with his friends and clients. Whether it is a big money sailfish tournament or your child’s first reef trip your time is priceless. A great guide maximizes your time. Fishing in the Keys improves your odds for sure. Father of three Randy knows a bit about kids and really enjoys teaching young kids how to fish. There are lots of fish to pursue; and as a versatile guide Randy can put you on the fish that are biting.

Depending on when you plan your trip the Florida Keys have some of the best offshore fishing in the world with Sailfish, Swordfish, Tuna, Wahoo and Dolphin offshore. With coral reefs that run all the way to the Dry Tortugas it’s like no other place on earth teaming with Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish and Lobsters.
