Let It Ride

When you’re looking for a new angling challenge, Captain Jack Lavin of Let It Ride fishing charters is at your disposal! Let him take you out on a memorable fishing expedition in the upper Florida Keys to enjoy the scenery and fill your cooler with fresh catch.

Join him on his 16’ saltwater fisher that can accommodate up to 2 anglers ready to explore the outside patches of Florida Bay. The boat sports a push pole for sight fishing and solid navigational electronics to keep you on the bite. Capt. Jack will provide top-of-the-line rods, reels, and tackle, and even fly fishing equipment.

Fishing licenses, live bait, and lures are also included in the price of the trip, so you only need to bring drinks and snacks.

The primary targets on your expedition will be Mangrove Snapper, Red Grouper, and many more. The variety of the catch depends on the time of the year and your preferences. After you’re back on land, your guide will clean and fillet your catch for you.

Everybody is welcome to fish with Let It Ride and Capt. Jack! Kids will have a great time on board, as well as novices and even pro anglers will have a thing or two to learn. Get your rods at the ready!

I've been an avid fisherman my whole life. I've had the fortune to fish around Florida, East Tennessee, east Mexico and west Sea of Cortez, as well as Yucatan Peninsula, Belize, Bahamas, Cuba, Christmas Island, Hawaii, and the list just keeps going. I try to fish practically every day now, with or without clients, though it's always fun to share great fishing with fellow anglers.
