95FiveFishing is not just about catching fish, it’s not just another charter. Its heart and soul poured out into a world class fishing experience for anyone that steps foot on the boat. 

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 trolling motor system that allows you to anchor no matter how deep the water.

Onboard electronics such as dual Garmin sonar/GPS units will save you time and help you find fish throughout the trip. Not neglecting creature comforts, the boat features a large fiberglass T-Top that provides good shade, a freshwater shower, and a high end JL stereo with subwoofers with Bluetooth hook up ready for any tunes you’d like to listen to on the boat.
Capt. Nathan’s passion is teaching fishing to people of all ages, especially kids. There is no minimum age for children on 95FiveFishing charters, however, on trips longer than 4 hours, he recommends bringing kids ages 7 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 or Tuna, possibly try your hand in many of the Snapper species in the Keys 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! Captain Nathan’s boat is conveniently located at Ragged Edge Resort and Marina in Islamorada.

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

About the Captain

Member since May 2019
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 4 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.
