key west fishing chartersSea Boots Charters was started over 20 years ago by Jim Sharpe a Captain with more than 50 years of experience in Big Game Fishing in the Florida Keys, Bahamas and South Florida. The name Sea Boots was taken from a world famous charter boat and Captain by the name of Buddy Carey out of Pier Five in Miami Florida. Capt. Jim's father Red Sharpe, Buddy Carey and world famous Captain Tommy Gifford were all in the Coast Guard together aboard a boat called the Black Swan. Capt Jim grew up working on charter boats in Miami at Pier five fishing with captain Lonny Cambel on the Wahoo, Fred Harvey on the Papa Sea Gull and John Sacon on the Martha Mary.

ALL NEW: Over the last 30 years or so I have written 100's of articles for national fishing magazines on fishing technique's and how to pre:dict their feeding behavior based on the moon phase, time of year and the direction of the wind. Many of my readers encouraged me to assemble these articles into a book. Well finally in 2008 I began to assemble the articles into a book and quickly realized there were far to many articles and short stories for just one book. I then decided to split the articles into five volumes; Collection of Articles One, Two, Three, Four and Five, "Fishing Adventures in the Florida Keys"
Each Volume deals with a like group of fish species/topics and includes a number of short stories and side bars bring the articles to life.  GO TO THE BOTTOM OF BOOKS VIDEOS TO SEE THE LISTING:


Sea Boots Charters was born out of Capt. Jim's love for big game fishing and his compassion for all the professional's (doctor's, Lawyers, nurses, fire fighters and policeman) working in high stress environment. Taking fishing to the leading edge was Capt. Jim's stress relief during and after riding Medical Rescue with Metro Dade Fire Rescue in Miami for 28 years.

The Sea Boots is Born
In 1988 Capt. Jim had Claude build one of the Torres 43 Foot hulls with wheelhouse and flying bridge. This was a shell only, no floor, bulkheads etc. Capt Jim and his son Jim began the task of finishing the boat. Capt. Jim's vision was to have no wood in the boat; this would eliminate weight and keep the boat as light as possible. This was accomplished by laminating sheets of ½ inch closed cell foam with fiberglass for all bulkheads, walls and floors. Even the keel was foam and fiberglass. Capt. Jim knew from past experience that his new boat must be lightweight for speed and economy but more importantly it must draft no more than 39 inches of water. This is a tall order considering that the Sea Boots is carrying 700 gallons of fuel, 200 gallons of water, two crew and six anglers. Not to mention a 900-horse power cat diesel, northern light generator, air conditioners and equipment. And lets not forget a twenty-six foot high tuna tower with controls. Well after two years of careful planning and a lot of work Capt. Jim's vision came to reality. A big thank you to my son for all his hard work helping to make the Sea Boots a reality.
