Meet Key West Fishing Guide & Captain – Grif Helwig
A seemingly endangered species here in the Keys, Grif is our native Floridian. Born and raised in Jacksonville he started gaining his fishing experience in the salt at a very young age. It didn’t take him too long to go from a little kid scooping shrimp to a man who was a well respected off shore charter boat captain and fish guide. His reputation as a top notch fishing guide quickly earned him a position on multiple tournament and trophy fishing yachts throughout the Caribbean and Central America.
