I am Capt. John Hoover, a lifelong Floridian and have been fishing in the Lower Florida Keys for 15 years now. I am a full-time year round fishing guide.From the shallow flats to deep offshore and everywhere in between, the diversity of the ecosystem is truly incredible. Let me show you the natural beauty and angling opportunity that abounds in the nearshore waters off Key West. I am on the water over 300 days a year and keep my fingers on the pulse of the fisheries. I am grateful everyday to continue to share this wonderful ecosystem with others,
