Fishing charters in the Lower Florida Keys. My name is Capt. Jason Gabriel. I'm the owner and operator of Boneafide Fishing Charters in the Lower Florida Keys. I've been fishing down here since I was about four years old. Grew up in South Florida. Had a passion for light tackle and offshore fishing. I got on the water at a very young age and just loved every aspect of angling. Spin, fly, conventional. I just love to put my friends and my family on fish and the passion grew to where I could actually do this for a living which is the greatest job in the world. I’d love to get you out on the water. We offer a variety of charters for every lifestyle and budget. We have 2 boats available. 29ft. SeaVee, 18ft. Hell’s Bay. 305.986.3211
