You will be fishing from a 22’ Pathfinder bay boat. She is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha, has GPS, a fishfinder and other navigational electronics to make your trip productive. The boat can take up to four people and is ideal for families looking for a fun day out while catching some nice fish.

The boat also as a trolling motor, a live well, and a cooler with plenty of ice. Onboard, you will find all the gear you may need. Capt. Tony will take care of the license, so all you need are food, snacks, and drinks. There is water onboard, but you should also bring your own. Put on sunscreen, bring a cap, sunglasses, preferably polarized, and make some room for a camera. With all the fish swimming around, you will want to have a good shot of your catch.

Capt. Tony will take on kids and parents and will tailor the trip to meet your needs. He’s a knowledgeable captain with a lot of experience fishing in the area. Also, if you’d like fishing with your buddies, Capt. Tony has the skills to put you on more demanding fish. Tarpon, Reds, and Permit can grow really big here. You could fill your bags in no time.

If you’re looking for more technical fishing, Capt. Tony can take you on his 18’ Skiff. Those trips are for more hardcore anglers. Just scroll down, and click on the captain’s name.

Capt. Tony started fishing when he was a kid. He knows these waters superbly as he learnt about it growing up in Virginia, fishing around the Chesapeake Bay. If someone knows how to put you on fish here, it's him. Capt. Tony has fished the waters of the Florida Keys for over 18 years. You can go fishing aboard a bigger boat and have a fun day on the water, or join Capt. Tony on his skiff for a round of technical fishing. Either way, you'll be in safe hands of a guide who wants to make your trip memorable.
