If you are looking for a fun day of fishing with no stress, give Captain Brian Kmiotek of Operationtek a shout! He’s got local knowledge along with great fishing skills to ensure your trip is a great one.

Delray Beach and its waters have a lot to offer to both seasoned anglers and novices, and all you need is good weather and an even better boat. Thankfully, your guide has a 17’ Carolina Skiff that’s perfectly suited to take you to the most bountiful fishing grounds. She’s powered by a 40 HP Evinrude engine and can accommodate up to 2 anglers, or one grownup with two kids under the age of 16.

On board, you’ll find quality rods, reels, and tackle, so you don’t have to pack your own for this expedition. If you’re fond of fly fishing, Capt. Brian can take you to the best spots, though you should bring your own fly fishing equipment. Live bait will be provided for you, and you will be casting your line 15 minutes after you move out.

When it comes to your prey, you will be going after a colorful mixed bag of catch on your half-day trip. Peacock Bass, Largemouth Bass, and Clown Knife Fish could all easily find their way to your line, and then it’s up to you to keep or release them. All of these species will give a proper fight before you manage to reel them in, not to mention they look great on photos.

Capt. Mike loves having kids on his boat, for him, it’s a great joy to teach them the fishing basics and watch them hook their first catch. This means you’re welcome to bring your little ones for a family fishing jaunt, they will have a wonderful time. Also, remember to bring some snacks and drinks to keep your energy.

Join Operationtek and your guide, enjoy your trip to the fullest, and remember – on this charter, every guest is treated like family!

The first half of my life was spent growing up in Long Island, New York, fishing as far back as I can remember. For the last 15 years, I've been fishing all over Florida from inshore to offshore, from lakes to canals. My main focus lately has been freshwater live bait fishing for Clown Knife Fish, Peacock, and Largemouth Bass on Lake Ida and the surrounding areas. I always had a strong passion for fishing that I love to share with others. A trip with me will not only be a memorable experience – it will be something you brag about, as I will do my absolute best to ensure you get the fish of a lifetime!
