Capt. Steven Lamp is the owner and captain on board the “In XS”.
Running the In XS has been a great time for me. First of all she is a legendary Viking 47. Comfortable, fast and very accommodating for all on board. I own my slip at Oceans Edge Marina where my love for fishing and diving Key West started very early for me back in the late 70s with my dad. Add that to the really great people I get to meet every time we take the boat out. Truly living the dream. I really enjoy the thrill of the hunt and the smiles on the faces when memories are made.
Originally from St. Petersburg Florida where I started captaining boats at a very early age for water sports, fishing and diving trips. My whole life has been occupations on the water. I Moved to the Florida Keys in 1991. Starting off in the dive business and part time on sport fishing boats I chased my passion for spearfishing and fishing to a commercial level. The path of full time Charter fishing guide was chosen for me after a bad diving accident in 93′.
As a veteran of the United States Coast Guard I stood watch as one of the guardians of the Grave Yard of The Atlantic at Coast Guard Station Hatteras Inlet. A licensed captain since 1986. Currently holding a 100 ton masters license. A Dive master. In my career I have guided my anglers to 37 tournament wins.
My philosophy is “everyday with a client on board is tournament day!” Rig to win – always..
Owner of Dream Catcher Charters a premier fishing charter service in Key West. I have turned my passion for being a fishing guide and waterman to teaching others how to live the dream in this profession- the right way.
Thats a little about me…
Gennifer is the voice on the phone for all of our clients when they book with us on our Viking 47 Convertible and our many other fishing charters that we offer here in Key West.
First Mate, Manager of the “InXS”.
Garrett has a passion for fishing and makes sure the “In XS” is pretty and ready to roll taking care of the anglers along the way.
Garret is new the the charter fishing gig but has taken ahold of it naturally. Great customer service and dedication to the baits to be sure they are free of weed and look tasty.
Consistency, organization and situational awareness is key to a good sport fishing cockpit for the best shot at catching a trophy and keeping folks safe. Confidence and strength to handle large fish are also a huge plus. Garrett has all of these qualities and I really enjoy working with him and feel very comfortable relying on him to make the fishing experiences on board the “In XS” the best for our customers. – Capt.
