Call Doug


Capt. Doug Kilpatrick has been guiding in the Lower Keys & Marquesas for 20 years.  His accomplishments include guiding to 23 IGFA World Records and numerous tournament wins.  He enjoys the Keys for its diversity of fishing opportunities and its unique ecosystem.  The ability to launch his boat from multiple locations allows guide and angler to take advantage of the optimal tides, areas, and species throughout the season.


Whether you’re a beginner wishing to snapper fish with spin tackle in the Lower Keys or an experienced angler wishing to pursue World Records west of Key West, Doug can accommodate all levels.


Doug began fishing in South Florida as a kid, and he has followed his passion since.  Working on charter boats in high school, college, and after graduating from the University of Central Florida, Doug moved to the Lower Keys to live his dream.  He purchased his first flats skiff and received his captain’s license in 1994 … the rest is history.  Doug has been fortunate enough to fish some of the top anglers in the sport, and many continue to return year after year.
