.Fishing in the Everglades National Park and the pristine waters surrounding the Florida Keys and Key West.
 Flats fishing, deep channel fishing or wreck fishing, either with spin fishing gear, or fly fishing.

The species of fish usually targeted are, but not limited to, Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit, Redfish,
Snook, Speckled Sea trout, Sharks, Spanish Mackerel and many more. Trips are customized to suit your needs and usually range from four to eight hours. Evening Tarpon charters are booked quite early on and they are four hours long. These usually coincide with the stunning sunsets we get here in the Florida Keys!

Now that Tarpon fishing season is here, we are busy and charters will be short in supply,
so it is advisable to book as early as you can!

Being close to the Everglades means that we can quickly get to some of the best backcountry fishing around. There are
many species of fish for young and old to catch. 
You are welcome to keep your catch as long as the fish are of legal size, edible and in season. 
Most restaurants will cook your fish to your liking as well. For the non fishing days, a trip to Key West or Bahia Honda State Park is also an option. 
We also offer sightseeing and Island tours for those who just want a look around and not fish.

​Fishing from a 16 Ft. Egret flats-boat, powered by a new 2015 140 HP 4 stroke Suzuki outboard. 
The "Flying Dutchman" is able to quickly and comfortably bring up to 3 anglers to the best backcountry fishing spots

in and around the waters of the Florida Keys. 
The boat has a build in backrest, so a longer run is more comfortable.
Sometimes longer runs are needed to get to different locations in the
backcountry of Florida Bay, the Everglades or the Gulf of Mexico.

Whether you are a new angler, or are more seasoned, Captain Oscar is able to advice and help you in getting the most out of your day on the water.
Patient with kids as well, families can have fun on the water too!! Fishing for trout with children is usually a great time and these are among the first back country fish they catch, followed by snappers and small sharks. Sharks are cool and not to be feared as they are very useful to the ecosystem in the Everglades and all the world's oceans.

For those who don't want to fish and just like to come along for the ride, they are welcome too! There is plenty to see when you're on the water, either in the  backcountry of the Everglades, or on the flats that surround the Florida Keys and Islamorada.​
