Light tackle fishing on the flats gives you better opportunities with sight fishing Permit, Bonefish, Tarpon, and Redfish. Light tackle fishing makes itself the most common and versatile type of fishing with just about anything you can think of catching. Light tackle makes a great day out on the water in producing numbers of fish like Mangrove Snapper and Jack Crevalle which is great for the kids. Another possible great opportunity for kids is Bonefish believe it or not.
For light tackle fishing Captain Robert provides all rods and reels for the trip. If you have a fishing rod that you would like to bring you are more than welcome to.
Captain Robert has over 20 years of fishing experience in the Florida Keys. He established his charter which is named after his late uncle's charter boat called the "Kingfisher". He was a great fisherman and charter captain whom inspired Captain Robert to NEVER give up. He is hoping to make a new legacy in honor of him. So come and join Captain Robert and he'll show you how to chase down Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, and other flats/backcountry species throughout the Florida Keys! Experienced and Non Experienced anglers are welcome from all ages.

We’ll be back and will hopefully be able to charter with Capt. Robert again when the weather (and fishing) warms up!
