Launch out of Key Largo with Captain Alex Monteagudo for the real deal Florida Keys flats fishing experience! A day with Captain Alex 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 18-foot Flats Boat as he works around mangroves or hidden backcountry flats. Some backcountry denizens you'll be targeting include snook, redfish, trout, a variety of snapper, and much more....Read More
If sportfishing is more your flavor, you can stay in closer to the keys to check out the crazy productive mud and grass flats where Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit like to hang. Tarpon are obviously a big draw in the Keys, but stalking bonefish and permit across flats in the Florida Keys is one of the most exciting kinds of fishing light tackle anglers can do and is one of the ultimate dreams for sport fishermen across the globe. Pair that with the fact that Tarpon often occupy the same flats and this area seems like heaven on earth!
So whether you're looking to chase down the saltwater grand slam with artificials, or hammer the backcountry with live bait, Captain Alex can cater his trips to a whole swath of anglers and will show you how to make it happen! He'll even provide all the gear from fishing gear to water so you're set up for success.
All you need to bring are some snacks and drinks, some sun protection and we highly recommend bringing some polarized sunglasses, they help tremendously when sight fishing for these denizens!
We booked a half day charter with Alex. It was me, my husband and our 17 year old son. We had a fantastic time. We wanted to catch fish we would eat. Alex knew exactly where to take us. It was a beautiful boat ride ...Read More and he knew exactly where the mangrove snapper were biting. We caught our limit and had a great time. But not only was the fishing great, Alex is SUPER nice guy. Just a great outgoing personality, answered all of our questions and was was professional but fun too. We had a great day. I would give him 6 stars if I could. We will definitely book with him again when we come back to the keys.

He put us on the fish, was very knowledgeable, caught my first Snook and it was a monster. We discussed what we wanted to target the day before the trip and Captain Alex came through. Caught ourselves dinner and a few snook! Was a great time, I have been out ...Read More with guides that just don’t seem to put any effort into finding or catching fish.
