Welcome to my fishing page-a place where you will find all sorts of great information regarding species of fish caught down here in the fabulous Florida Keys, information about fishing throughout the year, under the monthly reports, and of course information about the many different trips and adventures that I can take you on.
Don’t forget that when you call, we will discuss what your interests are, what has been biting, who will be going, and I will personalize your trip to meet your wants and desires.
Do you know that feeling, that one of excitement when your heart starts beating a bit faster-when you can feel it in your chest, your hands begin trembling just slightly, your brain immediately fills with too many thoughts to process? The anticipation of what is to come, the unknown, the potential for a great thrill? That’s just a minuscule description of what it is like to stand on the bow of a skiff, holding a fly rod, when you see a school of tarpon-swimming like underwater black missiles, coming straight at you. Everything else in your life comes to a screeching halt and you are only there, on that bow, 100% in the moment. Now that’s an adventure!
The excitement is the same whether you end up seeing school after school of ‘silver kings’ swimming in your direction, or whether you see single fish laid up in a still backcountry basin. The potential to feed that fish, see him gobble up your fly, see the amazing ariel show he will most likely put on, and then to fight the good fight that will ensue…there’s nothing like it in the world. If you’ve never experienced something like this before, it’s time to quit watching it on TV and U-tube and come experience it for yourself. Call and book today, so you can get out there-it’s too much fun to miss out on. If you’ve caught a tarpon before and know what I’m talking about…well then, you’re probably already booked again!
Fishing in the Everglades National Park is something on the bucket list that cannot be passed up. As you leave the dock you immediately start heading into a backcountry paradise as you glide over the pristine waters of Florida Bay and enter into the Everglades. The Everglades National Park spans across 1.5 million acres and is the third largest National Park in the lower 48 states. It is home to 36 threatened or protected species, and is the largest breeding ground for tropical wading birds in North America. It supports 350 species of birds, 300 species of fresh and saltwater fish, 40 species of mammals, and 50 species of reptiles. Back here we will target snook, redfish, baby tarpon, and more. Fishing in the backcountry is a unique experience and can be absolutely spectacular! The possibilities are endless as we get deeper and deeper into the Glades and wind our way through different mangrove creeks and over beautiful flats. Besides the awesome fishing capabilities, the wildlife and scenery that surrounds you back there is breathtaking. You literally take a step back in time and are surrounded by a place untouched by technology and crowds, and you are truly one with nature. Call and book today to make this dream your reality!
