Experience the amazing fishing the Florida Keys flats offer with Skins and Fins Charters II. Captains Ted and Donnie Benbow, a father-son fishing team, enjoy providing their guests with a memorable day on the waterways of South Florida. They cater to anglers of all skill levels and are happy to provide stress-free fishing instructions to novice anglers, as well as slip a few helpful tips for the seasoned fishermen.
This amazing duo provides the shallow water flats experience of fly fishing, spin fishing and sight casting for Tarpon, Bonefish, Redfish, Snook, Permit, Sharks and more. You’ll be fishing on the flats of Islamorada, Marathon, Key Largo, and the Everglades. The captain provides Tsunami and Penn rods and reels, but you should bring your own fly fishing equipment.
Sight fishing involves spotting fish in the water – far easier said than done! Capt. Donnie Benbow is one of only 20–30 guides in the area who specialize in this type of fishing. Sight fishing trips are not easy, they are meant for hardcore fishermen willing to stand through the entire length of their trip to be able to see and catch the fish.
Your trip will take place on an 18’ Hellsbay flats boat. She can accommodate 2 guests and both can fish at the same time unless you do fly fishing – in that case, you need to take turns. There is enough storage room for your personal belongings and a cooler that you can stock up with your drinks and snacks.
Whether your goal is to learn fly fishing or level up your spinning and sight fishing game – Skins and Fins Charters have the trip for you. Book now and head out to the flats!
