Flats & Backcountry Fishing

Our flagship charter service here at Nautical Fishing Charters, backcountry and flats fishing is our passion and specialty.

There is nothing like cutting the engine and silently cruising the flats in search of some of the most elusive fish anywhere in the world.

Our flats and backcountry fishing adventures are built around our angler’s skill level and what species they are trying to target with their excursion.

On our flats and backcountry fishing adventures, we regularly target:

  • Bonefish
  • Permit
  • Redfish
  • and much more!

At Nautical Fishing Charters, we happily offer both spinning and fly fishing for your backcountry fishing trip.

Prime Season March – June

Tarpon Fishing

Ever hooked into a Silver King and listen to the sound of that reel roar? 

The Atlantic Tarpon is one of the most powerful and awe-inspiring fish species found in plentiful numbers in the nearshore waters of the Lower Florida Keys. 

From March – June each year, the tarpon put on a show under the bridges and within the cuts and channels of the Florida Keys fisheries. 

For anglers, hooking into these magnificent creatures is the thrill of a lifetime. 

Captain Kevin Grubb and the Nautical Fishing Charters team has fished tarpon charters out of Summerland Key for years and is passionate about putting anglers of all experience levels eye-to-eye with this powerfully amazing resident of the Florida Keys marine ecosystem.
