Booking For Miami Tarpon Fishing Now

Hey guys I just wanted to let you know that we are now currently taking Miami Tarpon Fishing bookings for next year right now and space is filling up.  If you want in on all the great action call now.


Fishing Trip For Redfish In Miami

Here’s the husband and wife duo fishing with us in the Everglades.  Their fishing trip was actually out of Flamingo which is just a short drive west of Miami.  During their trip they got to catch many Redfish, Snook, and even a Tarpon on light tackle spinning rods.

Arrival Of Migrating Birds

This is a shot taken last week while fishing in Flamingo.  It’s of migrating birds flying down to South Florida for the winter time.  If you choose to take a Miami fishing trip you should be able to see flocks like this one.  It just tops off an unforgettable fishing experience in the backcountry waters of Miami.


Shark Fishing Duo

Here’s a cool shot taken while Miami Shark Fishing last week.  The father and son team came down from Alabama to go Shark and Tarpon fishing here in the Florida Keys.  They caught Tarpon up to 200 lbs. in the evening and sharks up to 8 feet long on the flats during the day.  Not a bad way to spend a vacation.


Underwater 80 Pound Poon

This shot was taken last Tarpon season while fishing in the Florida Keys just a short drive south of Miami.  The Miami Tarpon Fishing can be done all year long and even during the winter time while it’s snowing up north.  We have a ton of resident fish that can be caught on light tackle and even fly fishing equipment.  To book a charter with us please call us today.


Miami Fishing Charter

This shot was taken by a client from the Northeast that was down here on a Miami Fishing Charter.  Together we caught a bunch of fish in the backcountry of Flamingo just west of Homestead.  Seeing this sunset was a great way to end a spectacular fishing day.


Snook Fishing With Rob

This is a really nice Everglades backcountry Snook.  Rob from New York was using soft plastic baits “Texas Rigged” which means weedless.  He took one of these lures and pitched it in the shadows created by the over-hanging mangrove trees.  If you want to learn more about backcountry everglades snook fishing click here.
