The vast fertile waters of Florida Bay provide shelter for juvenile species of Redfish, Snook, and Tarpon, which makes it a primary feeding ground for gamefish of all sizes.

Fly Fishing affords anglers an opportunity to target aerobatic baby tarpon – often in schooled up in pods which stay tight to the mangroves. Finding schools of feeding redfish and tarpon is what Capt. Montoro does best during his guided fishing trips to Flamingo. Aside from chasing Tarpon and Snook around the mangroves of Florida Bay, Capt. Montoro is an expert at finding monster snook. Many of the Snook caught on his Flamingo fishing charters range from 5 to 15 lbs with a few larger fish mixed in.
