YKnotFish

1110 River
Steinhatchee FL, United States

YKnotFish is a full service inshore charter business based out of Steinhatchee, FL, fishing the flats and bays for Redfish, Trout and Flounder. Located on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Steinhatchee has that perfect small town feel that many of Florida’s popular fishing destinations have lost, while still offering amazing fishing in the area’s secluded backwaters, shallow grass flats, and inshore bays. YKnotFish was featured in an episode of NBC Sports international TV show Bass2Billfish with Peter Miller! Join them and see what gives them the star quality.

You will be fishing aboard a 25 ft Carolina Skiff center console with room aboard for up to 4 passengers. Built in 2015, she is powered by a 200HP Suzuki engine up to a top speed of 40 knots, meaning you will waste no time getting to the best fishing spots. The boat comes equipped with GPS, Fishfinder, a trolling motor for sneaking up on the fish, and a livewell full of quality bait to make sure they can’t resist your hook once you’re in range.

YKnotFish provides high quality tackle for a wide range of fishing techniques including spinning, popping, jigging and drift fishing. Captain Tony Mathis has been fishing the Gulf of Mexico for over 50 years and has fished out of Steinhatchee since 2001. He will take you to all the best spots, and will show you the tricks and techniques he has learned over his long career to make sure the fish don’t stand a chance!

During the summer months there are also fun-filled scalloping charters available. These are great for families, as you can spend the morning splashing around in the water with the kids and making the most of the amazing weather, and head home at the end of the day with a bucketful of tasty scallops.

YKnotFish asks a very important question - Why not fish!? With a great boat, quality gear, and an experienced captain there is no reason not to, so grab your cooler and your sunscreen and get down to Steinhatchee for an awesome day catching big tasty fish!

Tony did a wonderful job of ensuring we had a great family fishing outing. Despite some very challenging weather conditions (cold front settled in, just had 7” of rain in the area, very windy and rough waters), Tony helped us enjoy the day together and catch some fish too. You definitely know your stuff when it comes to fishing the Steinhatchee waters. Thank you for everything. We would recommend you to anyone and hope to make it back soon!
