You’ll be fishing from a 22’ Epic bay boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. She’s powered by a 150 HP Suzuki engine and features the most sophisticated electronics to put you on the fish. You’ll also find wireless Minn-Kota Ulterra engine, a live bait tank, and a cooler.

Visit Flamingo Everglades, Biscayne Bay, and Miami inshore waters. Your fishing grounds depend on what fish you want to catch, such as Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Snook, Sailfish, Tarpon, King Mackerel, and many more. Just ask the captain what’s in season and he’ll arrange a trip of a lifetime.

Your fishing equipment is fully covered, which includes live bait as well. There’s fresh water on the boat but feel free to bring your snacks and drinks.

Born and raised in Florida. Grew up on the water. Parents owned a shrimp boat business, so all I ever did as a kid was fish. I know the waters of Miami very well. I have over 20 years of experience.
