Eric Scoble Blackwater Charters
One of our top picks in Islamorada. Captain Eric Scoble’s Black Water Charters runs fishing trips around the flats, estuaries, and creeks of Islamorada, FL. These waters are filled with fish year round. It’s fun, both for less experienced anglers and veteran fishermen.
Captain Eric Scoble commandeers an 18’ Hewes that can accommodate up to two anglers, and which he custom built for shallow water fishing. She is powered by a 115 HP Suzuki engine.
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. He has competed with success 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.

All fishing equipment, flies, live and artificial bait, as well as the required fishing licenses are covered and provided by Captain Scoble.

Spent a fantastic half day fishing the back water. Captain Eric was knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Caught snapper but also hooked, and unfortunately lost, a number of tarpon too. Would love to go back at some point to fish for tarpon, they were amazing, and I’m sure with more time Eric could have coached us to landing one! Already learned a lot from him in half a day!
