Captain Tony Horsley operates a 18’ Hell’s Bay Marquesa, powered by a single Yamaha 115 engine, with a maximum capacity of 3 passengers. He also operates a 22’ Pathfinder Bay Boat, powered by a single Yamaha 150 engine that accommodates up to 4 angler. If you have more than 2 people Capt. Tony recommends the Bay Boat for a more comfortable day. Both boats features an assortment of navigational utilities, including GPS as well as fishfinder. Bait and tackle are included in the price, but be sure to bring sunscreen (preferably not spray-on) and sunglasses, drinks and snacks/lunch. If Tarpon is in season, you also might want to bring your camera along with you, as their jumps can make for memorable pictures. Rain gear may also be needed, relative to the weather forecast.

Tony will be happy to customize a fishing excursion tailored to you and your group. Depending on your preferred target species and the time of year, you can go after Tarpon, Permit, Snook or Redfish – or if you’re more interested in bottom fishing, you can also focus on catching Snapper and Grouper, a great table fare for taking home or preparing as dinner at a local restaurant.

Regardless of whether you’re a seasoned angler or this is the first time you’re holding a rod, Captain Horsley will give his best effort to put you on fish and get you back to the docks satisfied. Bowed Up can be found at the World Wide Sportsman, Downtown Islamorada. All fishing gear, including rods, reels, live and artificial bait are provided by Captain Tony, along with mandatory fishing licenses for all occupants of the vessel.

About the Captain

Tony Horsley
Islamorada, Florida, United States
Member since October 2014
My addiction to fishing started when I was a kid. Growing up in Virginia, I fished the waters of The Chesapeake Bay my entire life. And I have been fortunate to fish the beautiful waters of The Florida Keys for over 18 years. My love of the water, enthusiasm for catching fish led me to a career as a fishing guide in The Sportfishing Capital of the World.
