Eric Scoble’s Black Water Charters runs fishing trips around the flats, estuaries, and creeks of Islamorada, FL. These waters are filled with fish year round. It’s fun, both for less experienced anglers and veteran fishermen.
The boat’s fishing gear is almost entirely light tackle, and is specifically designed for this type of fishing. Shimano, Daiwa and Penn International products are all commonly used and provided on board. Capt. Eric is fluent in both fly and light tackle fishing, and is committed to showing you the flats fishing potential of the Florida Keys.
Whichever course you set, you will have a reliable vessel to put you on track. You’ll be fishing from an 18’ Hewes Redfisher skiff. She is powered by a 90 HP Suzuki engine and can reach speeds of up to 30 knots. The boat can take up to two anglers. The boat is equipped with navigational electronics, a fish box, and stores quality tackle.
Cpt. Eric has been fishing the local waters for more than 25 years, mostly targeting species such as Bonefish, Permit, Snook, Redfish, and Tarpon. He has competed with success in a variety of local fishing tournaments, including the Redbone Celebrity Tournament, Islamorada Sailfish, The Backcountry Challenge and many others.
At the end of the day, whatever type of trip you choose, it’ll be an experience you won’t forget. All fishing equipment, flies, live and artificial bait, as well as the required fishing licenses are covered and provided by Capt, Scoble. Commercial life jackets are available for kids. Bring food and drinks. Pack sunblock, a cap, sunglasses, and light clothes. And don’t forget your camera.
