Skins and Fins specialize in providing memorable fly and spin fishing trips, going after the likes of Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, Sharks, and much more. Captain Ted Benbow covers the area of Islamorada, Marathon and Key Largo, and enjoys fishing the backcountry waters of the Everglades as well. All the necessary fishing equipment, flies and bait is provided by the Captain.

A family fishing venture, Skins and Fins is operated by Captains Ted and Donnie Benbow, father and son. No matter your level of fishing experience or skill, they are determined to do everything they can to ensure you have an exciting time aboard their vessel. For those of you relatively new to the sport of fishing, the Benbows don’t mind taking the time to take you through everything you need to know to catch fish in these waters. Given their experience in fishing these backwaters though, some of their tips could benefit the seasoned pros just as easily.

With over 40 years of experience, Captain Ted specializes in fly fishing, spin fishing and sight casting for Tarpon, Redfish, Bonefish, Snook and whatever else’s biting at the time.
