Pisces Connections, LLC

There are many reasons to visit the legendary Islamorada, ‘Sport Fishing Capital of the World’, and Pisces Connections, Llc. will give you one reason more. Captain John Guastavino has been fishing the plentiful Florida waters for more than 35 years and he can’t wait to teach you everything he knows about fishing and having a great time!

Hop aboard his 18’ Dolphin flats boat specially designed for navigating the inshore and backwater areas smoothly and quietly. It has a 150 HP Mercury Pro XS OPTIMAX engine, top-notch GPS, and the most reliable safety gear. The boat also features two ice-boxes — one for your drinks and one for your hard-earned catch.

You’ll get to flex your fishing muscles and try your hand in spinning, jigging, popping, and even fly fishing. The captain will show you the most productive areas, backcountry and inshore to offshore.

Your weapon of choice will be light and fly tackle by top brands such as Shimano and Daiwa, provided by the charter. Live bait, lures, licenses, and even catch cleaning are also included in the price. Live bait is usually provided beforehand, but the captain also fishes for it while on the boat with the customers, so you’ll get to help him catch the best bait for your dream fish.

There’s no age limit — Pisces Connections, Llc. invites anglers of ages and experience levels to join them in an adventure of a lifetime.

About the Captain

John Guastavino
Islamorada, Florida, United States
Response time 6 hours
Member since June 2018
Captain John Guastavino was born and raised in the Chesapeake Bay and started fishing since he was only five years old. He fished there until he was in his twenties and then decided to move to Florida Bay when he was 23. Captain John has been fishing in Florida for 35 years now. He is a huge Tarpon lover — this fish can be found in pretty shallow waters, yet it is the hard-fighting one and he loves that.
