Serenity Fishing Charters welcomes you to Islamorada, Florida! Hop aboard and spend a wonderful day on the water with Captain Brian Gwilliam, a seasoned angler who’ll make sure you have a fun and enjoyable trip. You’ll travel inshore, nearshore, as well as to the backcountry waters of Everglades National Park in search of many lovely fish species. Book today and experience fishing in Islamorada to the fullest.

Your journey will start on a 24’ Ranger bay boat that can sit up to 4 guests. It runs on a 300 HP Suzuki engine with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots and uses modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio technology for navigation. The boat is completely wheelchair accessible and is equipped with a wireless trolling motor, livewell, and an ice-box.

In the winter, you can fish the shallow patches off the nearby shores for Mutton Snapper, Black Grouper, Yellowtail, Hogfish, Porgy, and more. Out into the Gulf of Mexico, you can search for Cobia, Permit, Goliath Grouper, sharks, Spotted Seatrout, and others. In the springtime, Serenity Fishing Charters switches gears primarily to fly fishing for Tarpon, but you can also use bait when around the local bridges and channels around the town. Apart from fly fishing, you can also spin, pop, and drift fish. You’re free to bring kids on your trip and you can choose whether to keep or release the fish you catch.

Captain Brian will cover you for everything you’ll need for the trip. This includes all fishing gear, licenses, and drinks. He’ll also clean, fillet, and bag your catch free of charge. The only thing you should bring is your favorite food.

Serenity Fishing Charters and Captain Brian would love to have you come down and spend a day or two on their boat fishing the beautiful waters of Islamorada.
