All anglers welcome aboard! No Slack Sport Fishing offers all types of fishing from offshore, wreck, and reef to inshore, bay, and Tarpon fishing. It is a family-oriented, family-owned and operated business and with both captains being born and raised in Marathon, Florida, it has a lifetime of combined fishing experience on these waters. Holding the title to many local Sailfish and Tarpon tournaments over the years, the company specializes in species-specific, light tackle, and live bait sportfishing. Join Captain James Platt and book with No Slack Sport Fishing for a memorable experience on the water!

You’ll be fishing from a 25’ SeaVee offshore sport fishing boat that can accommodate up to 4 guests. It runs on a 225 HP Suzuki engine and uses GPS and radio technology for fast and efficient movement on the water. You’ll have an ice-box to store your fish and drinks, a livewell to provide live bait, as well as the help of a first mate.

You’ll go after Mahi Mahi, Tarpon, Great Barracuda, Snapper, Permit, and more. You’ll catch by bottom and deep sea fishing, spinning, fly fishing, as well as kite fishing, all using both light and heavy tackle. You will be keeping all the fish you catch and you’re free to bring kids on your trip.

Captain James will provide all the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures except for fly fishing gear, and will also cover you for fishing licenses and drinks. He’ll even clean and fillet your catch at no extra cost. The only thing you should bring is the snacks of your choice.

Come and have a fishing trip to remember together with No Slack Sport Fishing!
