Florida Snook Fishing

Thanks for checking in and see below for Sam's review of his Islamorada fishing trip with Captain Ben of Captain Experiences.

Booking with Captain Experiences

When my father put me in charge of finding a Marathon, FL fishing charter for us to book a trip with during our vacation, I didn’t really know where to start. I knew Jonathan had started a website that helped with just that so I reached out to him.

Fishing License Information for Every State

Where Can I Get a Fishing License?

Captain has you covered. Find your state on the list below and follow the link for the official government licensing site for fishing licenses and permits in each state. You will need a license in the state in which you are fishing, not where you live, so if you are traveling be sure to look for the state where you'll be reeling them in.

Fishing licenses are regulated at the state level in the US, so pricing and licensing varies a little bit everywhere, but licenses are easily bought online (or offline at local retailers, if you prefer). Licensing exists as a way for states to collect money that goes towards conservation - you are directly paying for the safety and longevity of the waterways you will be heading out to fish.

What Does Captain Experiences Do?
December 3, 2020

Captain Experiences makes booking outdoor sports guides simple, effective, and trustworthy. Search Captain for your ideal trip and book with our licensed and insured guides.

What started as a way to make booking fishing guides easy quickly matured into an all-out effort to Unlock the Outdoors for all. To us, the status quo of booking outdoor sports is fundamentally broken for both adventurers and guides.

In order to book a trip, adventurers search online hoping the limited information they find is accurate. If you’re lucky enough to hear back, you’ll learn the trip is twice as expensive as the website says or that your guide just isn’t available. Your reward for hitting the jackpot (booking a trip) is running to an ATM at 5am to withdraw $1,000 in cash and meeting at an unknown location in the dark...
