Join Miami native, Captain Matt Pourbaix of Bandit Outdoors for a memorable custom-designed fishing vacation! This charter specializes in sight fishing Biscayne Bay, Florida Keys, Everglades National Park, and beyond in search of the best fishing opportunities and beautiful fish.

Snook, Redfish, Permit, as well as the majestic Tarpon and Bonefish, are all in the cards when you go fishing with Capt. Matt. If you’re looking to hone your fly fishing and light tackle skills, then this charter is the right choice for you.

Freshwater excursions for Asian Carp, Largemouth Bass, Peacock Bass, and other native and exotic species in the urban canals of South Florida are also on offer. Capt. Matt also gives fly casting instruction and lessons – these trips are educational and ideal for beginners or young anglers.

Your vessel will be a 16’ Dolphin Super Skiff with a 50 HP Evinrude engine. This classic flats boat can accommodate up to 2 anglers, and is quick and maneuverable on the skinniest of flats, while also handling chop comfortably. Everything you need for a successful day on the water will wait for you on the boat and Capt. Matt will be there to help with everything else.

All of the necessary safety equipment, licenses, and tackle is provided as well as fly rods and spinners. If you prefer, you are welcome to bring your own equipment. On full day trips, you’ll have light lunch on board, and drinks are provided on every excursion. If you have any food restrictions, please let your guide know in advance.

Kids are welcome to join on your fishing trip, as long as they’re at least 10 years old, so that they can fully enjoy the experience.

I am a native of Miami and I grew up fishing the waters around South Florida and the Keys. Since I was strapped to the flybridge of my family's 31' Bertram, I have been on the water targeting everything from Permit to Sailfish. I'm a fourth-generation South Floridian and I spend my time split between Miami and Belize. I have years of experience safely guiding clients to finding fish and providing in-depth knowledge and history of local areas. I also teach new and intermediate anglers everything from basic to advanced fly fishing techniques and practices. I have guided trips in Florida, Cuba, Wyoming, Puerto Rico, Belize, and other fishing destinations all over the world.
