Flats fishing is an experience like no other, and the Florida Keys are unlike any other flats fishing experience in the world. Sight fishing is a combination of hunting and fishing in the shallow waters of the flats. We'll stalk fish in the gin clear waters of the Keys for our main quarry, bonefish, permit, and tarpon. However, there are other sporting species to be found, such as redfish, jacks, barracuda, and sharks. I\'ve fished the Lower Keys flats for many years and I have the patience and experience to make your trip the success you've dreamed of. I specialize in fly fishing but I am adept in spin fishing with light tackle and have all the gear we'll need regardless of your skill level. We offer an experience of a lifetime!

Hire a Charter Boat

If you don't have a boat, why not hire a charter boat with a professional fishing guide for a hassle-free experience. Charter boats come in all sizes and offer offshore, inshore, and backwater fishing trips. There are Party Boats offering lots of fun. There are also charters offering kayak fishing trips, paddle board tours, jet ski tours, sailing tours, scuba diving & snorkeling, and trips for exploring like sightseeing or shell collecting on barrier islands. If you want to just get out on the water, maybe go to dinner at a waterfront restaurant or go shopping, hire a charter boat!

Fishing guides offer charters as popular way to get out on the water and they ensure a successful fishing day. Your fishing guide, the Captain, is licensed and has many years experience fishing the local waters guaranteeing an exciting fishing trip. As your personal fishing guide, your captain knows where to go, what to use for bait and chum, and will share some of their secrets with you and your guests.

You are welcome to bring your own fishing gear, but almost all guides have high-quality rigged tackle available for your use at no extra charge. Many companies will even clean and pack the fish you catch, just cook and enjoy!
