Come enjoy the day or even just a few hours exploring the pristine backcountry waters in the Lower Keys! Trips with Flatzlife Charters can include but are not limited to sightseeing and birdwatching along with fishing.
Captain Brandon Steffen will take you out on his 17’ Ankona skiff. It’s powered by a 30 HP Tohatsu engine which gives it a maximum cruising speed of 28 knots. This is a humble and reliable craft that’s perfect for fishing on the calm flats around the Florida Keys.
Expect to do some drifting and spinning with light and heavy tackle depending on what you’re looking to catch. Barracuda, Sharks, Mangrove Snapper, and Tarpon are the main targets and the catches you’re most likely to come across in his favorite fishing grounds. You can either release them or the captain can clean them for you after the trip at no extra charge.
Capt. Brandon enjoys fly fishing and he’s happy to provide equipment for it or feel free to take your own. Star rods and Daiwa reels are provided for you as is live bait, which he’ll prepare before your trip.
Just make sure you bring food and drinks, which can be stored in his cooler, as well as sunglasses and sunscreen. Also make sure you get a fishing license before you head out. A day permit can be found for $16. Whether you want to target gamefish or just enjoy a few hours relaxing on the boat, Flatzlife Charters will get it done for you!
