SoFlo Inshore Charters offers year-round fishing adventures in the Biscayne Bay. Join Captain David, who’s been fishing in this area for over 30 years. His main goal on each trip is to provide his guests an experience they’ll remember forever. No matter who joins him on the boat, he always brings hard work, laughs, and smiles, all while catching lots of fish.

Capt. David runs a 21’ Pathfinder out of Haulover ramp. This bay boat is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and accommodates up to 3 guests. Besides safety and navigational gear, the boat has a Yeti cooler, a fighting chair, and a live bait tank. You can also count on top of the line fishing equipment that the captain gets from his sponsors.

The main targets of these trips are Tarpon and Snook but there’s a variety of other species too. You can also go after Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, Barracuda, and Grouper. Combine different fishing techniques and change your targets. The fishing can change fast with the tides, so you’d be surprised how dynamic it can get in just a few hours.

All of your fishing equipment and drinking water are included in the price. Pack some snacks and don’t forget your sun protection. The captain also cleans your catch and he’ll fillet it free of charge. Make sure to bring your cooler if you want to keep it fresh.

This day is about enjoying nature, catching tasty fish, and most of all, building a relationship that will last for years to come. SoFlo Inshore Charters is looking forward to having you aboard!
