About Your Trip

Launch out of Angler House Marina on Islamorada with Captain Brock for the real deal Florida Keys flats fishing experience! A day with Captain Brock will include exploring the seemingly endless maze of backcountry inlets, mangroves, and honey holes that stretch in the Everglades National Forest. You'll stand vigilant at the bow of his 17-foot Maverick skiff as he works around mangroves or hidden backcountry flats where others can't even fish! His permit to fish the Everglades National forest is harder to get down there and thus he can take you where most other captains cannot! Some of these backcountry denizens include snook, redfish, trout, a variety of snapper, and much more.

Had a great time fishing with Brock! The beauty of the backcountry was amazing and our goal was to catch some fish for dinner which we did! Bonus was going to his uncles marina for a quick snack and drink and really felt like locals! Highly recommend.

Went out for a 2 hr trip with captain Brock and it was fabulous! Love that he offers quick trips as the wife of a fisherman I get bored after too many hours. Brock was a great guide & we will definitely go out with him in the future!
