Eric Scoble Blackwater Charters

Whale Harbor Marina Mm 83 Over…
Islamorada FL, United States

Captain Eric Scoble commandeers an 18’ Hewes that can accommodate up to 2 anglers, and which he custom built for shallow water fishing. This boat is made for getting up on the flats, to give you the best possible chance to get on the fish. The boat’s fishing gear is almost entirely light tackle, and is specifically designed for this type of fishing. Shimano, Daiwa and Penn International products are all commonly used and provided on board. Captain Scoble is fluent in both fly and light tackle fishing, and is committed to showing you the flats fishing potential of the Florida Keys.

Captain Eric was born and raised in Islamorada, five generations strong. He’s been fishing the local waters for more than 25 years, mostly targeting species such as Bonefish, Permit, Snook, Redfish and Tarpon, and has also been successfully involved in a variety of local fishing tournaments, including the Redbone Celebrity Tournament, Islamorada Sailfish, The Backcountry Challenge and many others. Captain Scoble’s expertise isn’t limited only to the Keys either; he’s done lots of trips to the Bahamas and back on a variety of private boats.

When it comes to fishing the Keys, the options aplenty. You can fish inshore around the island, or take a trip into the Everglades National Park which is vibrant with wildlife. Everglades is a popular choice for those who wish to experience the natural beauty of untouched land and more than 250 different species of endangered and protected fish and wildlife. At the end of the day, whatever type of trip you choose, Eric wants to make sure it is an experience you will not forget. All fishing equipment, flies, live and artificial bait, as well as the required fishing licenses are covered and provided by Captain Scoble.

Captain Eric put us on trout and we caught around 15. He gave us great information about Florida Bay for the remainder of our stay here.

We went out on a very windy day. Eric found some lady fish, that was a hoot! After we had some fun and enough bait fish he found a spot where we hooked a couple of black tip shark
Given the wind and very turbulent waters Eric managed to make it a memorable morning!

He put us on fish every day and made our time memorable. My 17 year old son is a die hard fisherman and says our trip was his best ever spring break. Give Capt Eric a try.
