About Your Trip

Hop on board with Captain Brad and prepare for an action-packed day of fishing the beautiful Key West waters! The inshore area around Key West is the perfect spot to chase after some hard-fighting Tarpon.

Tarpons have become the most sought-after game fish in the Florida Keys, and fishers flock here during prime season (April through July). Whether you’re using rod and reel or fly fishing, these sometimes 100 plus pound fish love to fight
hard. Bring your camera because catching a tarpon is a stunning experience that you will want to capture.

On this 4-hour trip, Captain Brad will take you to prime fishing spots in the Key West backcountry. Once there, you'll be using light tackle and Captain Brad is happy to demonstrate proper fundamentals for luring in Tarpon. He grew up fishing in the Keys and is sure to put you where the fish are biting.

Captain Brad fishes aboard a 34’ Yellowfin center console with a capacity for 2 people. Powered by 2 300 HP Suzuki engines, this well-outfitted vessel is sure to comfortably get you where you need to be in no time. It has a GPS, Fishfinder, Live Bait Well, Outriggers, Ice Box and even a bathroom!

Captain Brad will provide all rods, reels, and tackle. All you need to bring is any food or drinks you might want. Climb aboard and catch some Tarpon!

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
