About Your Guide

13 Years of Experience

Captain Jamie grew up working as a mate on head boats and charters boats in the Northeast. Captain Jamie moved to the Florida Keys in his early twenties to pursue a career as a guide. He spent a couple years running light tackle and offshore boats out of Key West, before accepting a job on St. John in the Virgin Islands. He guided there for 2 years, targeting Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and other species. Captain Jamie moved back to the Keys to establish his own charter business so he can offer the best experience to anglers pursuing gamefish on fly or light tackle.

There is something about a flats boat in the keys that just feels right. Being poled around the endless maze of gin clear flats and mangrove riddled backcountry, stalking up on unsuspecting Bonefish, Permit, and Redfish, hooking into monster Tarpon in the summertime are what Florida Key's inshore fishing is all about! So head out to explore the beautiful tropical waters the Florida Keys are known for with Captain Jamie down in Key West to catch the bug! You'll chase bonefish and permit on the flats, and redfish, trout, jacks, and snapper back in the backcountry. Either way, Captain Jamie will be there to lend expert advice as he quietly poles you into schools of fish. Possible Species: Snook, Jack Crevalle, Tarpon, Spotted Sea Trout, Bonefish, Permit, Sharks, Ladyfish, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Redfish, Goliath Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and others Read More

Jamie was very professional and helpful. Few fish found compared to preception put out by most folks. He was very knowledgeable of the other wildlife we encountered and able it add local history of area to go along with that. His boat, equipment and tackle pristine and zero problems. Great guide and I would go with him again.

Good trip, focused on 3 different prey, large fish(tarpon, sharks), bone fish, and skip jacks, sea trout, etc., next time will stick with large fish exclusively

Captain Jamie wad awesome! Even though this time of year is one of the worst for tarpon, we hooked 5 and landed 3. We also chased barracuda and landed one as well. Jamie is just a good dude to hang out with and fish for the day…he will with out a doubt find and put you on good fish. I will be back for more trips in the future.

Had a great time fishing for bonefish, bonnet head sharks, and lemon sharks. The boat and fishing locations were beautiful. Guide needs to get a fishing landing net. Will go back out with Captain Jamie again next year. Thanks!
