95FiveFishing

Impressed by the beauty and wealth of Islamorada fishing, Captain Nathan started 95FiveFishing to let other people in on the things that drew him here. On his trips, he will try his hardest to make each moment memorable as you explore the rich fishing grounds scattered all across the area! 

You’ll be fishing off of a 24’ Tidewater 2400 Baymax powered by a 300 HP Yamaha outboard. Thanks to its powerful engine, the boat is capable of a top cruising speed of 50 knots! It’s equipped with a top of the line Minn Kota troller system that allows you to anchor no matter how deep the water.

Onboard electronics such as dual sonar/GPS will save you time and help you find fish throughout the trip. Not neglecting creature comforts, the boat features a fiberglass T-Top that provides good shade, a freshwater shower, and a Bluetooth stereo system.

Capt. Nathan’s passion is teaching fishing to beginners and children. There is no minimum age for children on 95FiveFishing charters: however, on trips longer than 4 hours, he recommends bringing kids ages 5 and up. 

Depending on the trip or customer wishes, the captain will target a wide variety of species available in the local waters. You may want to target Mahi Mahi, try your hand at catching Blackfin Tuna, or bottom fish for Red or Black Grouper. If you’d like to enjoy your daily catch for dinner, Capt. Nathan will be happy to clean and fillet it for you free of charge.

On board, you’ll also find a large cooler with plenty of room to store all your snacks and drinks to keep yourself energized through all the fishing! The meetup spot is at Capt. Nathan’s home, where you can park for free and head to the boat ramp 100 feet from there.

The last thing to remember is to bring your sunscreen, sunglasses, and fish until you drop with 95FiveFishing!

Captain Nathan has been fishing ever since he could hold a rod, and caught his first Sailfish when he only 9 years old! Originally from Minnesota, Capt. Nathan has been guiding fishing tours in his home state for almost 12 years. About 2 years ago he moved to Florida with his family, got his captain’s license, and turned his dream of running charters into a reality. He's always had a passion for fishing, but what made him decide to fully dedicate himself to it is his love of teaching people how to fish and sharing his experience with them.
