Chasin’ Tails offers exciting and unforgettable fishing experiences, which is why you’ll find Captain David Lamb at the helm. Born and raised in Miami, Capt. David made his first fishing steps as a kid, under the guidance of his father and uncle. He mastered both saltwater and freshwater fishing early on and moved to Key West. This is where he got more experience in backcountry waters and also explored far offshore spots for big game fishing.

With a guide this experienced and fishing grounds this versatile, there’s plenty of adventures to choose from. Check out mangroves and nearshore waters, where you can target Shark, Barracuda, Permit, Cobia, Snapper, and Grouper. Or head out to the shallows and battle the Silver King - Tarpon!

You’ll be fishing on a 24’ Pathfinder that accommodates up to 4 guests. She’s powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine and reaches the speed of 50 knots. The boat features the latest navigational electronics, safety gear, and a live bait tank.

All fishing gear, including live bait, rods, reels, and lures are covered. There’s also bottled water on the boat but feel free to bring other beverages and food. Don’t forget your sun protection, such as sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen.

Capt. David’s enthusiasm is contagious! Even if you’re not passionate about fishing, you’ll find yourself wanting to catch more and waiting for the next battle with the rod. It’s easy to make the best out of this trip. Just pick a date and join Chasin’ Tails!

    The best of both ends of the day. Tarpon being nocturnal by nature is best fished for during the early am and late pm hours. This trip leaves right at sunrise for 4 hours, returns to the dock during lunchtime, and heads back out around 5:00 pm for another 4 hours. This is truly the best chance you will have to catch a Tarpon in the springtime.
