Captain Yoan was born in Cuba in 1976 and has over 30 years of fishing experience. Having first learned to fish with his grandparents, who took him to the local ponds in Cuba to fish for Tilapia with a stick and some string, he has always been on the search for new fishing adventures. This passion brought him to Florida in 2002, and he hasn’t looked back since. With well over a decade of experience studying, fishing, and succeeding in these waters, he is now a well-known and respected captain both locally and nationwide, and his several large sponsors are proof of his success and talent. What makes him unique as a charter captain is his strong attention to detail and his desire and ability to meet the needs of his clients.

Our fishing experience with Captain Yoan was excellent. Our day total was well over 30 fish. His knowledge, experience and keen eye helped us catch fish throughout the day with at least 5 lunker peacock bass. He taught us a couple of fishing tricks that we'll be using on our future trips. Captain also kept us entertained with stories from his pro bass fishing circuit days during thunderstorm while we were fishing under the bridge.,

Flew down to Key Largo, FL as a last minute weekend vacation and I knew I wanted to fill one of my mornings with a private charter to catch Peacock Bass. I ended up messaging Captain Yoan. I told him I had a small window to book something and he accommodated me x10. He was flexible on the time and drove closer to me so I could grab breakfast before I checked out of my resort. He is an absolute professional and has a level of experience that is unmatched, but very down to earth and patient which made me feel like we were long time friends. This was hands down my best day of fishing…caught a 6.3lb peacock bass and 25+ others in a 4hr half day trip. No need to look anywhere else, seriously…this is the whole package experience!

We caught at least 25-30 peacocks that morning! Captain Yoan is simply the best. If you’re in Miami area you need take a trip with him!

I booked a full day for my brother and I on our vacation and could not have picked a better captain. We are both born in Palm Beach and never caught a peacock bass until this trip. The captain set realistic expectations and blew them out of the water just like we were by all the peacocks. He said 10-20 fish would be attainable but I’d guess we hit the 50 mark some 10-20 being the kind you want a net to land safely. Not only that you won’t find a better fishermen. Every cast he makes is spot on and he helped find so many extra fish for us it was truly remarkable. I go on a lot of guided trips and he not only a billy bad ass but he had us laughing a ton too. Will definitely be booking again because we had the time of our lives. Thank you again Capt.

Best two days of guided fishing we’ve ever had! More Black bass and Peacock bass than we could count. If you want a guide that will work hard to put you on the fish, this is the man to use. We will definitely be back!! Thanks again for a memorable trip my friend.

Captain Yoan was a great host, we ended up catching 15 and lost several. Captain Yoan showed us where and how to catch and was a great driver in high winds.
