FLATS BOAT: FLATS FISHING ONLY
BAY BOAT 24′ : INSHORE, NEARSHORE, AND REEF TRIPS THREE TO FOUR ANGLERS.
To maximize your fishing experience, I suggest only 1 or 2 anglers on the flats boat, maximum two anglers. For groups of three or four, we will be fishing off our 24′ bay boat, spin fishing only.
In order to maximize your chances of success while sight fishing for Bone fish, Tarpon, or Permit, I highly recommend that you allow yourself at least 2 or 3 days of fishing. This will help accommodate for any less than perfect weather conditions we might experience on a 1 or 2 day trip. This will also allow you sufficient time to get more comfortable with seeing and reading the fish, as well as allowing you’re casting skills to develop to a more effective level.
Tarpon season is my busiest time of year during the tarpon migration. April through June is prime time for targeting tarpon on fly or bait. I recommend at least three days when booking a fly fishing trip for tarpon. I have several anglers that book five to fifteen days during the season to maximize their success.
To book dates for Tarpon Season April-July, I offer THREE DAY, FIVE DAY, AND SEVEN DAY FLY FISHING PACKAGES. No less then three days booking during tarpon season and a 50% deposit is due at the time of booking.
If you are looking for only one or two days of tarpon fishing, please call because at times we might have a one or two days available between booking.
Please read cancellation policy below.

For multi boat or corporate trips, the full payment is due upon booking. Please call ahead so we can plan the best option for your group. Rates may vary depending on the size of your party, and all sales are final on multi boat trips.
Weather is a constant question I get when someone is booking a trip. If your charter is cancelled due to unsafe weather, your deposit will be held for a future date. The captain is the only one who can cancel due to unsafe weather conditions.
When booking a FLY FISHING trip, the customer cannot cancel if they feel it’s to windy for them to fly fish. South Florida is a tropical place and we can experience calm days and windy days, and there’s always going to be more windy days than calm days. We will always have other options for the day with spin tackle using lures as well as bait. NO FLY SNOBS PLEASE! A true fisherman should be well rounded in all types of fishing tackle and adjust to the conditions for the day.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
