Capt. Matt Pribyl

130 Palm Ln
Islamorada FL, United States

Capt Matt is a specialist in shallow water fishing, with a particular passion for sight fishing. The species commonly targeted aboard one of his two vessels include some of Florida’s most popular inshore species, including Redfish, Tarpon, Snook, Bonefish, Permit, Barracuda, Trout and many others.

Captain Matthew is a 2nd generation fishing guide in the Florida Keys. By serving as a mate for his dad since he was just a boy, as well as through a lifetime of his own fishing and guiding achievements, Matt has garnered a wealth of experience about the shallow waters of the Florida Keys as well as the Everglades national park, one that he doesn’t mind sharing with others.

Pretty early in his career as a fishing guide, Matt discovered that many of his fishing clients had less than stellar experiences with other guides, as they would often criticize them for every fishing-related mistake they made. This is the one thing that Captain Pribyl is passionately against. Not only is he very patient for a fishing guide, but his primary reason for guiding is to make sure each of his clients brings back with him an exciting, fun and above all pleasant fishing experience.

Aboard his two boats, Captain Matt utilizes quality fly and spin tackle, from notable brands such as Sage, Abel and Loomis. Billy Pate, Islander and Abler reels are all utilized.

Matt has a Maverick Mirage, 18.4’ long. Can accommodate up to 3 people. Powered by 150hp Yamaha four stroke. Quickly reaching the tarpon grounds, very helpful during the busy migration months.

Matt also operates a Hell’s Bay Boatworks Professional, 17.8’ long. Max capacity of 2 anglers. For fishing extreme shallow water and maneuverability. Powered by 70hp Yamaha four stroke.
