Our backcountry fishing charters guide our anglers through the rich ecosystem of mangroves and flats that surround the lower Florida Keys.

These charters take place on our flats fishing boat that provides a stable and silent platform to hunt for popular flats fishing species of the Florida Keys. 

Flats trips work best with one angler and our guide working hand-in-hand to silently hunt for some of the most elusive fish in the Florida Keys including Bonefish and Permit.

Our custom backcountry adventures are customized to target the fishing goals and preferences of our anglers, usually focusing on the targeting of one species.

Backcountry fishing is a game of patience and perseverance. Let our experienced guides show you the ropes!

Our nearshore, reef & offshore fishing adventures offer more variety than our specialty backcountry fishing adventures. 

In the months of April, May & June, our focus is dedicated to tarpon fishing under the bridges, and in the inlet and channels of the lower Florida Keys.

These charters take place on our center console sportfishing boat powered by twin Suzuki 200 HP Outboards. 

Our bottom fishing and offshore trips regularly hunt for multiple species of fish depending on the time of year and fishing conditions.
