Dee Cee Sportfishing and Capt. Chuck Schimmelman

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Capt. Chuck Schimmelman has lived in the Florida Keys since he was just 2 years of age. He owned his own skiff when he was just 10 years old and remembers fishing for snapper, grouper, and tarpon when he was very young. Chuck has fished as both a captain and a mate from the Post Card Inn, (formally Holiday Isle Marina) for more than 35 years. Well-known throughout the Upper Keys for his fishing expertise, Chuck has won many tournaments over the years, and always gives his customers a wonderful experience on the water and fond memories to take home with them.

Our Florida Keys Fishing Charter Boat

The DEE CEE is a 42’ custom fiberglass over mahogany wood sportfishing yacht. The boat is powered by clean-burning twin 3208 Caterpillar engines. It has a large fishing cockpit with 4 fighting chairs, and an open salon with a table to enjoy your lunch and a couch for resting or to get out of the sun. We use Penn and Dawia fishing reels with Lowrance electronics to make for a successful day of fishing.
