Join Salt Creek Fishing Charters and get ready to discover the Florida Keys with Captain Alex Harmon. Capt. Alex knows all the best inshore spots to put you on trophy-size fish and will work hard to get you hooked up. He caters his trips to all ages and skill levels and invites you and your family for a fun day of fishing.

Your boat for the day is a 24’ Shearwater bay boat, equipped with state-of-the-art navigational electronics, tackle, and safety gear. This is exactly the boat you want when fishing in shallow waters, with a casting platform and wireless trolling motor to put you on your target without being detected. She accommodates up to 4 guests and everyone can fish comfortably at the same time.

Your target species will include inshore A-listers, such as Jack Crevalle, Permit, Bonefish, Tarpon, Goliath Grouper, and snappers. Capt. Alex also takes his clients into nearshore waters to target the likes of Cobia, Kingfish, Barracuda, and Horse-eye Jack.

Various Snapper species are also on the menu, including Yellowtail, Mutton, and Mangrove Snapper. In short, these waters are teeming with a variety of fish, so you’ll have your fair shot at reeling in some pretty cool species.

Capt. Alex specializes in fly fishing and spinning on light tackle. He provides top-quality Penn rods and reels. Your fishing license is also included, so just arrive 10 minutes before the departure time, and you’re all set.

Be sure to pack some sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, and feel free to bring snacks and drinks as well. Everything else is covered, including catch cleaning and filleting services. Just come ready to have a great time and let Salt Creek Fishing Charters put you on the fish of your dreams!
