I run shallow water sight fishing charters for tarpon, bonefish, permit, barracudas and sharks. I offer half, three quarter and full day charters and night tarpon trips during tarpon season. My boat is an 18' Beavertail BT3 flats skiff powered by a proven Yamaha 115 HP four stroke outboard. Capable of floating in a foot of water, my boat will get us to the best flats quickly and comfortably. I am equipped with high quality saltwater fly and spin fishing gear for you to use including Colton rods and reels, Penn, Abu Garcia and Tibor. Whether you want to pursue a tournament winning permit on fly or have a ten year old kid simply bend a rod for the first time, everyone is welcome aboard my boat.

I offer private charters accommodating 1 to 2 anglers and I can secure additional guides for your party upon request.

Please text or call me directly at 305-797-2452 or send me an email at to check availability.
