With a draft of less then 5" and an all-welded aluminum construction, the Flats Tracker will get you up close and personal with the fish! It's equipped with a 21' Stiffy Hybrid Push Pole that allows the boat to glide quietly right to the fish (as well as a 55lb thrust MinnKota trolling motor upon request and style of fishing) and a 6' Power Pole. The Tracker can hold Captain Matt and one other person, and is perfect for those that want to fly fish or use light tackle and sight fish. Captain Matt is a very passionate angler who prides himself on making sure that no matter what the circumstances of the day might be, you will still have a great time out on the water. Safety is always the number one priority. Captain Matt is very flexible and is willing to do what it takes to make your dream day on the water a reality! Captain Matt comes prepared with all the necessary Licensing as well as full insurance coverage, all the necessary bait and tackle for the type of fishing that day as well as iced down coolers with nonalcoholic drinks (water, Gatorade, Soda, etc. depending on what Matt has in stock), and you will only use high quality, well-maintained Shimano and Penn reels paired up with St. Croix, TFO, and Shimano rods. If you want to bring your own gear that's awesome as well! Just let Captain Matt know in the days leading up to your trip. Read More

Great charter, we caught trout and some thick black drum. You can just hang out and wait for a strike.

Had a great relaxing time with Capt. Matt. Went for an afternoon fishing trip and caught a bunch of fish that we were able to take home. Would definitely go again!

Been on the boat multiple times. Always puts me on fish. Always has drinks on board. Has a few different boats for getting shallow. 10/10 definitely recommend!

Our experience with Captain Matt was excellent! Just an overall great person with tons of knowledge. The fish did not cooperate but Matt made it enjoyable with his positive attitude and personality. Hope to book again in the future!

Beautiful day to be on the water. Captain Matt was awesome! From his knowledge about fishing and the area, to his willingness to pass along that knowledge to our 18yr old boys who are down here for college. They will be fishing while down here thanks to Captain Matt!

This was the BEST fishing trip with guide I have ever had. Captain Matt was awesome. My family had the most wonderful time. He is knowledgable and very good with people and all fishing levels of experience. Best of the best! We also saw dolphin and wonderful wildlife back in the mangroves. It was a memorable three hour trip and we can’t wait to go again.

Did an inshore trip. Took my wife and 2 young children (7 and 5). Captain Matt was fantastic. Took time to explain all the different fish to the kids. Caught many different varieties. I could not recommend Captain Matt more highly if you have young kids and want to take them fishing

Captain Matt is awesome!! He taught us so much about the area and the wildlife. Played excellent music -whatever we wanted! He put us right on the fish and we had a blast. He’s very entertaining and just great at what he does! Highly recommend. We will definitely see him on our next trip to Daytona!!
