4 Hour Fishing Charter (1-6 People)

Location

81576 Overseas Highway - Islamorada, FL

Description

We will travel 15 to 40 minutes across Florida Bay into the Everglades National Park. Here in 2-8 feet of water we will catch Speckled Sea Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Barracuda and several species of sharks.  Redfish and Snook can be caught on this trip depending on water temps and the time of the year. 

During the ride to the Backcountry and back to our marina we will be see the various wading and shore birds that call the Everglades home. We also can spot pods of Dolphin that often approach the boat and will ride our wake very close to the boat. The ride is very enjoyable and the sheltered shallow waters of the Bay rarely get rough. Many clients tell us that the ride is an amazing part of the charter. 

We will fish with a mix of live and artificial baits all provided within the cost of the charter. The rod and reel combos we use are well maintained spinning outfits. All of the captains will be happy to teach anyone aboard how to properly cast, retrieve and hook up fish. We bait the hooks and take your catch off your hook for you as well. This style of fishing is very much like freshwater fishing in that we will be doing a lot of casting and retrieving similar to Bass fishing. However, we will catch fish that will pull more drag and fight harder than any Bass that you’ve ever hooked!

We will fish in channels, basins, on shallow flats and around mangrove shorelines. Our boats have a Minnkota trolling motor for working shorelines and in 1-2 feet of water along the flats. We don’t troll lures.  Backcountry fishing is very active and we will be doing a lot of casting.

The captains have a long-standing policy of catch and release only for all Snook and Redfish that are caught year-round. We are happy to keep legal size Sea Trout, Snapper, Tripletail and Spanish Mackerel for you to enjoy for a meal and we will happily filet and package your catch for you at the dock.
