About Your Trip

Have you ever wanted to go on an adventure in the Florida Keys? Islamorada, and the whole Florida Keys, is the perfect backdrops for fishing charters with Captain Mark.

No matter if you’re an experienced angler looking to hook a big fish or you’re a beginner and want some rod bending action and tasty table fare, Captain Mark can cater your trip to your goals! Kids are always welcome!

Inshore fishing the Florida Keys attracts anglers from all over the world who are looking for the “grand slam” of shallow water fishing as you can target numerous prized species in the Florida Keys! Backcountry fishing is done in the inland waters of the Florida Keys and Key West. Flats fishing and backcountry Fishing are done in the same place, as the backcountry holds all the flats.

The shallow waters in the Keys are home to plenty of fish feed, such as shrimp and crab, making it a hotspot for larger fish to prey. You will come into contact with prized monster inshore fish that call these waters home or are just passing through. Water depth in the backcountry can range from 0 to 30 ft of water with massive cuts and channels between the shallow flats and also includes the mangrove ilands. It's all part of the “backcountry”.

Back up in the Everglades you can expect to catch Redfish, Speckled Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Blue Runners, and Permit, Bonefish, and Tarpon as well!

Book a trip above and have a once-in-a-lifetime experience traveling through and fishing in this unique coastal environment. Captain Mark will make sure you have an experience you'll be talking about for the rest of your life.

Captain Mark
has been saltwater fishing his whole life. After many years fishing the Gulf in the Tampa area, he decided to move down to the Florida Keys and share his experience with as many veterans as he possibly can. Although he enjoys fishing with everyone, 16 years ago he began taking out other vets, with and without disabilities, to share the fun and camaraderie of fishing. Soon after, began to take everyone out fishing and it became a passion to share the joy of fishing with as many people as possible. The beauty of the Everglades, Florida Bay and Atlantic Ocean is something everyone should see once in their life. Whether you are a first time salt water fisherman or old salt. There is always something to share that is new.

I wish I could give Captain Mark more than 5 stars! My two sons and I caught a ton of fish -- mackerel, snapper, trout, bluefish and more. Captain Mark knew the area, took us right where we needed to be and made sure we were set up

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

Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs.

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