Dirty Water Fishing Charters Key Largo Florida Review

Editor: Mike

Basic Description of Service:

Dirty Waters Charters offers backcountry fishing charters from the Upper Keys to Florida Bay, Everglades National Park and Biscayne Bay. Capt. Lain Goodwin is the owner/operator of Dirty Waters Charters and specializes in targeting shallow-water species around Key Largo and Islamorada.


June 2012 found myself, my son, and son in law with an uncontrollable desire to go on a Florida fishing trip! We each are avid fishermen, and spend a little too much time chasing Trout, Salmon and Steelhead in the west. We all felt a trip to the ocean would be a blast..were we correct?

We did LOTS of research and came to the conclusion that a trip to the Florida Keys, chasing fish in the shallow waters of the Everglades would be a blast.
We did MORE research and decided we HAD to have a guide. It was not hard, from that point deciding on Captain Lain Goodwin with Dirty Water Charters.

Why did we choose Captain Lain Goodwin?
-He had a great web site :). This really does show that he is legitimate, and that he cares about his image. VERY IMPORTANT
-He had great reviews, we checked at the Hotel we would be staying at, and called some former clients. All agreed Lain is one of the best.
-He was great to talk to and his LOVE of the Keys really stood out.

The Event:
We jumped on Captain Lain’s boat at 7am. We headed out to the everglades. We made a quick stop to catch some bait fish, and we were off.
We then spent the day chasing: Snook, Red Fish, Sea Trout, Jack Crevalle, Grouper, and anything else that would take the bait.

The fishing was great, and the company was even better.
Captain Lain really knew what he was doing. He was able to tell us all about the area, giving us information and comments that made the trip even better.

Lain Goodwin is not only a very good fishing guide, he is just a fun and good guy to hang out with. He made the trip fun, exciting, and with us wanting more!

The boat, poles, reels, and all other equipment was TOP NOTCH. If we lost bait, broke off, or had any hiccup at all, Captain Lain was there with a new setup. He kept us FISHING all day, with no interruptions.

We at highly recommend Dirty Water Charters! You will have a good experience, and be well taken care of.

What he could have done better:

Nothing, great work!!!
