About Your Trip

Florida Keys flats fishing is like no other experience in the world. Sight fishing is a combination of hunting and fishing in the shallow waters of the flats. You'll stalk fish in the gin-clear waters of the Keys for our main quarry, bonefish, permit, and tarpon. However, there are other sporting species to be found, such as redfish, jacks, barracuda, and sharks.

First Time Booking with Us?

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only catch fish, but show you a great time on the water, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.

Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR code (like a mobile boarding pass). Just show your guide your QR code on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to go fishing. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!

In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a full refund. Your safety is our top concern.

Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our location specialists are always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!

Recommended Packing

Polarized glasses — We'll be sight fishing and so polarized glasses are a must. Sunscreen — There is no shade on the boat so you'll need sunscreen and protective clothing to protect you from the South Florida sun. Food and Drink — I provide a cooler full of ice and water, but you need to bring whatever else you'd like to eat and drink for the day. Rain gear — I try to keep us out of the chop and rain, but sometimes its unavoidable, so rain gear is a good idea. Camera — Most of the fishing we will do is catch and release, so you'll want to capture your memories on camera.

Required Items

Nothing additional needed.
