Rusty Albury’s Backcountry Charters operates out of Islamorada, Florida, the unofficial ‘Sportfishing Capital of the World.’
Among other species, Captain Rusty commonly targets the likes of Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, Redfish, Snook, and Sharks, as well as a variety of other game fish that can be found in the productive Florida Keys depending on the time of year. Rusty specializes in light tackle and fly fishing excursions, and is happy to try and customize your trip to your own fishing preferences as much as possible.
You’ll be fishing aboard an 18’ center console vessel powered by a single Mercury outboard engine, with a maximum passenger capacity of 3 per trip. The boat is furnished with a conventional arrangement of navigational and marine electronics, including a GPS, radio, and fishfinder. A push pole, as well as an icebox, can also be found on board.
Captain Rusty is committed to making sure your trip is memorable and will do everything he can to put you on fish. A trip along these backwaters is not only a fishing experience, it can also be a firsthand environmental lesson.
All the necessary fishing equipment is provided by Captain Rusty, complete with live and artificial bait to be used depending on the species you’d like to target and the recent fish behavior. If you’d like to have your catch cleaned and bagged, the captain will be happy to do so following the trip. Fishing licenses for all occupants of the boat are mandatory and will be supplied by Rusty at no additional cost.
