“I recently had Rand Holstead down from Houston Texas for a day of permit and bonefishing. The day started early with the forecast calling for light winds. We started at 6:00 am and after a 30 minute ride we reached our first spot on the oceanside just as the sun was rising. The tide was at the very last part of the fall, we started to push onto the flat and off in the distance you could see the signs of tailing bonefish.
Redfish, Bonefish, Permit

Heading down to florida for a little fishing? Ask about our off-shore charters where you can catch kingfish, grouper snapper, dolphin (mahi-mahi – not Flipper) and even one of those beautiful sailfish for your den.
Have you ever caught a double digit Bonefish?
Looking for something special ask Brian to take you and your wife on an Everglades tour. You can see alligators, salt water crocodiles, manatee, dolphin (yes like Flipper) and an amazing display of birds and water fowl. If you like to fish on slightly lighter gear try out the baby tarpon. Baby tarpon can jump 3 times their length out of the water and bend your mind with the fight you get out of these little buggers. Bring binoculars and luch it will be a memorable and safe experience.
