Joey Flats Fishing Trips Everglades National Park Homestead
Explore the immaculate flats and beautiful backcountry with Captain Mark to chase Redfish, Snook, Trout, Tarpon, Shark, Snapper, and Permit down in the Florida Keys! These trips start at a beacon of the sportfishing world, the World Widesportsman in Islamorada (You'll know what I mean when you meet up with Captain Mark if you don't already). From the Dock behind World Wide, you will hop aboard Captain Mark's 17' Mako skiff that comes ready with all the fishing gear you will need, a cooler with some ice, and waters for you as well. Depending on weather conditions, time of the year, and your preferences of course, Captain Mark will take you either up and down the strings of keys to explore the abounding flats for Permit, Bonefish, Jacks, and Tarpon (when they're in the area), or back into the everglades to explore the seemingly endless maze of mangroves and backwater flats for Redfish, Trout, Baby Tarpon, and Sharks. Both are awesome options and Captain Mark will be there, either way, to lend his knowledge of tides, share his secret spots, and show you his favorite techniques for each species! Captain Mark is a pleasure to fish with and looks forward to taking you out on your next Florida Key's inshore adventure! Read More

Captain Ron was fantastic. He definitely knows where the fish are. He was also cordial and polite. Helped myself and my family the whole time. I highly recommend Captain Ron.
Christian G. with Ron B. of Islamorada, Florida
Captain GW was an awesome guide! As an angler I have a higher standard, however fishing with my 12 year old daughter, I was hoping that we’d get someone who was patient, knowledgeable and an all around good guy as well. Some guides are kinda too salty, but GW was great! Him and my daughter really hit it off, and he definitely put us on the fish, even with a hard wind. His boat kept us dry and rode really well despite the conditions. You can tell that he really loves what he does and enjoys the “total experience” of fishing these beautiful waters. We saw manatees, dolphin, all kinds of birds including flamingos! It was an awesome experience caught snook and redfish and had lots of action. Great guy, great boat, great experience.
Philip G. with Gw D. of Tavernier, Florida
Chris rocks!!! Personable and knowledgeable. Great day fishing. Will recommend
Had a great time. Rod is super friendly and knowledgeable. We didn’t slay all the fish but still got some and had fun.
Patrick O. with Ron B. of Islamorada, Florida
Jason was amazing! Very knowledgeable and funny. Makes your trip feel like you’re with a friend and for sure worth it!
Lilly M. with Jason C. of Key Largo, Florida
Brian S. with Ron B. of Islamorada, Florida
Perfect captain for me. He was just personal enough, but didn’t talk your head off. He was focused on fishing and helped us make the most out of an overcast day.
David R. with Eric R. of Islamorada, Florida
GW was nice guide and enjoyed fishing with him. He was very knowledgeable about the snook and redfish habits, as a result we caught some fish…Thank You
Aldo P. with Gw D. of Tavernier, Florida

Brittni H. with Jason C. of Key Largo, Florida

JOSEPH B. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida
I booked this trip for my husband and grandson. We didn't want a large group trip, so this one was perfect. Capt Joey and I spoke several times and he was quick to respond with any answers I had. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and ensured my guys had a great trip! I would recommend him highly, with no hesitations. If you want a small, intimate trip into the Everglades, this is the way to go!!!
Gerald H. with Jose R. of Homestead, Florida
Awesome full Keys experience. Seatrout, Snook, Sun, Rain it had it all. Saw dolphins, sharks, stingrays, and lots of birds. GW was great to talk to and taught us alot about the area. Will recommend to friends.
Kaleb M. with Gw D. of Tavernier, Florida
Trip was great capt john Paul was like meeting an old friend.
Jeffrey M. with Jon-Paul H. of Islamorada, Florida
This was our 3rd trip with Chris that week. While all were memorable, this one ranks with a lifetime best. You can't control the fish, and as always, Chris put in maximum effort. However, on this day, the fish cooperated. My son landed a 45 pound Cobia, we had a couple large Mutton Snappers, a pair of King Mackerels, and a bonus Amberjack. Simply amazing day! I can't wait until our next trip! Already making plans...
Carl L. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida
This is my 2nd of 3 booked charters with Chris. This one was special. 3 generations on a fishing/swimming/snorkeling fun trip. This man was so patient and enthusiastic with my grandchildren. As I am tucking them in to bed tonight, they want to know when we can do that again! He got special mention in their bedtime prayers... I have no idea how Chris can manage this level of energy day in and day out. Hands down, the best guide I have ever booked.
Carl L. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida
We just got back prior to me writing this. Captain Chris, hands down is the best guide I have booked with. He is professional, positive, and driven. He worked incredibly hard to put us on fish, and stayed later than he would have been required. He is very knowledgeable. I am thrilled we have two more days booked this week.
Carl L. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida
Simply outstanding. We went out in challenging weather conditions (25+ MPH wind) - Chris put in the effort to make the trip a success. Highly recommended.
Justin M. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida
Had a good trip with Captain Nick, caught some quality fish and had a good time
