trip description for Islamorada Angling Excursion in Islamorada

On this trip, you'll launch from one of the coolest marinas in the Florida Keys. Even the marina here is packed with Tarpon! You'll be able to watch 100-pound Tarpon cruising right next to the dock while you board Captain Mike's Action Craft skiff. Once on board, you'll discuss the game plan for the day. Whether you want to try for the inshore "grand slam" of a Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, and Snook, or if you want to fish for dinner, Captain Mike does it all and is willing to accommodate any technique you wish to use. He comes prepared, and will provide you with all the rods, tackle, live bait, or artificial lures you will need for a successful day out on the water. If you decide to chase the sport fish, Captain Mike will use his knowledge of the tides and weather to take you to the best Tarpon, Bonefish, or Permit flats in the area. On these beautiful clear water flats, Captain Mike will use his wireless trolling motor to stealthily sneak you across the flat to sightcast right to the fish! If you choose to bag some gamefish, Capt. Mike will put his 30+ years of experience to work taking you to all the secret channels, mangroves islands, and "honey holes" to help you catch your limits on delicious species including Mangrove Snapper, Redfish, Gag Grouper, and more. Plus, if fly fishing is your game of choice, Captain Mike just asks that you bring your own gear. He can also provide his own flies and fly rods as backup. Besides that, all you need to bring is your food and drink of choice, sunglasses, and a hat, and Captain Mike will take care of the rest on your Florida Keys fishing adventure! Read More

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    On behalf of Warren Herndon, Wayne Hall and myself (Dexter Hudson), I would like to report that we had an outstanding time on our fishing excursion with Captain Don. Captain Don was very enjoyable to talk and visit with and he also patiently answered all of our questions, explaining what he was doing. And he worked like a Trojan baiting and putting new hooks and leaders on our poles after sharks robbed us of our catch when we reeled in too slowly. We did manage to reel in 22 good-sized Yellow Tail snapper and were able to return home as conquering heroes with meat for the table. Don not only cleaned the fish but provided several tasty recipes. The gentlemen did the cooking, the wives joined us in devouring the meal and we all had big smiles on our faces.. Thanks Captain Don! If or when we get back, you'll be the man we call!

    I highly recommend Anthony if you want to fish out of Key Largo. He was obviously respected by the other guides we met while we were fishing and demonstrated a great knowledge of the local water and the best places to find different species of fish. Additionally, he had excellent equipment that was in very good shape. This includes his boat. Even more important was his willingness to conduct the type of trip I wanted for my grandchildren's first fishing trip. He is also extremely affable and fun to be with. If I go back to the Keys, I won't look for a different guide. I will just call Anthony and ask, "What's biting?".

    Allen T. with Anthony A. of Key Largo, Florida

    Captain Andrew, put us on fish right away! He knowledgeable about all things Key Largo. He is professional, organized, and enthusiastic about what he does. We highly recommend captain andrew to anyone, and when we come back we will book with him again. Highlight of the trip was landing the nurse shark!

    Our team of 6 went inshore fishing and got plenty of mangrove snappers! The captain Chris was very informative and friendly. He took us to different spots to catch fish and get a nice breezy ride with amazing scenery of Florida keys.

    We had an amazing time on a tough fishing day, would definitely book again when I am in the area. Andrew is great with the kids, and super patient with the beginners. He did everything he could to put us on fish. He also pointed out the abundance of wildlife, including sea turtles, hammerhead sharks, and a manatee. Everything we could hope for with my son's first saltwater fishing adventure.

    William S. with Andrew A. of Key Largo, Florida

    We booked a 3/4 day after speaking with the captain the (plan) was made to shoot out deep and if we were not hitting them we would come in on the 3/4 day booking rather than a full day. Captain troy and his first mate worked as hard as I have ever seen to get fish on the boat. Not sure but at one time I think he had a deep running plug in one marlin plug and 4 top water trolling plugs so it looked like they were shooting for many different depths. We finally got into the mahi-mahi it was on. The first mate and captain maneuvered through 4 men as quick as humanly possible pulling fish off the lines and baiting hooks and handing them back. The only true way to explain it would be controlled chaos. These guys are GREAT at what they do and both the first mate and the captain seem to be fantastic people in there own right. So if your looking for a hard working boat stop here at Miller Time....

    Vance T. with Troy W. of Islamorada, Florida

    Incredible fishing! I’ve never had the experience where I cast my line and within 5 seconds I get a strike. Over and over, it was constant cast and strike. Caught 20 fish in the first hour. Not only an expert guide for fishing, but Patrick is a really nice person to hang out with. Super chill to talk sports and fishing, but was cool and professional. He also recommended an awesome place for lunch where they grilled our catch! Top notch, highest recommendation possible!

    Robert B. with Patrick B. of Key Largo, Florida

    Had an absolute blast with Captain Chris! He was so nice and his passion and love for fishing made my bachelorette trip worthwhile! Our crew got to catch some great mackerel, yellowtail snapper and mutton snapper, plus more! Being able to celebrate my love for fishing and send off in the Keys with my gfs and Chris was the best! He got me on a huge tarpon hook up that I’ll absolutely never forget. Highly highly recommend this trip and we’ll certainly be back!!!

    Elizabeth G. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida

    We had a great day on the water. Caught a variety of fish, some bigger some smaller. Captain Jason proved to be a real people person, in firm control of his craft. Great conversationalist. Definitely would go out with him again.

    John U. with Jason C. of Key Largo, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Our trip with Anthony totally exceeded our expectations. From the moment we met him we knew we were in for a wonderful experience. His equipment is all first class and his knowledge of the back bay is extensive. After putting us on many fish and constant action, we were able to catch a beautiful snook for the dinner table and a fish that was a trophy fish of a lifetime. He then suggested a local restaurant and suggestions on how to prepare our catch. The ambiance, service and food preparation was the best meal of our entire trip. We would highly recommend Captain Anthony and love to spend more time with him whenever possible.

    Grant F. with Anthony A. of Key Largo, Florida
