Summer Fly Charters
Key West, Florida is known for being one of the best fishing capitals in the world, with stunning scenery and crystal clear waters that are just brimming with a huge variety of species. Captain Brice Padgett can’t wait to welcome you aboard Summer Fly Charters and take you on an adventure around the Lower Keys that you’ll remember for a lifetime!
Whether you were born with a rod in your hand or are just discovering your sea legs, Capt. Brice offers fully customizable trips that cover everything from poling the backcountry to fly fishing in the flats. Fancy targeting the Floridian ‘grand slam’ of Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit? Let your captain know—he’s a native Floridian who loves nothing more than seeing happy, smiling guests, so he’ll help you come up with the perfect plan to battle these big game fish.
You’ll be cruising the waters on a 17’ Maverick HPX flats boat. She can accommodate up to 2 adult anglers. However, Capt. Brice loves teaching budding anglers how to conquer these waters, and will happily allow 3 guests if your party is made up of either 2 adults and 1 child, or 1 adult and 2 children. Just make sure you let him know in advance, as he provides all life vests and will need to know what sizes to bring for your little ones!
As well as being the perfect size for sneaking up on your potential catch, Capt. Brice’s flats boat is equipped with a GPS and fishfinder—combined with your captain’s expert knowledge of this area, it’ll take you about 20 minutes to get to where the fish are biting. All equipment is included in your trip, so expect top-quality rods, reels, and live bait. If you’re up to something a little bit more challenging, there’s even fly fishing gear.
Whether you’re a keen angler, a fly fishing fanatic, or are simply looking to create family memories that you’ll cherish for a long time, get ready to come aboard Summer Fly Charters and experience Florida fishing at its absolute finest!
