Florida Saltwater Flats Fishing Charters invites you to experience some of the best fishing Florida’s Big Bend has to offer. Join Captain Mark or one of the four captains that work for him, and find out for yourself why fishing in Steinhatchee is simply irresistible.

Capt. Mark and each of his captains you may fish with pride themselves on their professional demeanor and the 100% effort they put into helping their customers catch as many fish as possible. As advocates of wildlife conservation, they practice catch and release whenever possible.

Your fishing or scalloping trip will take place on a 2020, 26’ Dekkat, powered by a 200 HP Honda engine. The boat is equipped with top of the line electronics, a trolling motor, Okuma rods and reels, and Fins Fishing lines on board to enhance your experience.

A typical trip with Florida Saltwater Flats Fishing Charters will take you around the area of Steinhatchee, which is a beautiful, family friendly spot for fishing and swimming. Among other species, you’ll mainly fish for Redfish, Trout, and Flounder. The captains enjoy using artificial lures to catch Redfish, and their favorites are Gold Spoon and Target.

Capt. Mark also offers scalloping trips, which can be great fun for all involved. The crew will take you to abundant scallop beds where people often limit out on these delicious shellfish. Get wet and take in the beautiful nature and wildlife of the Big Bend area! As scallops are normally found in shallow water, all you need to bring with you is your mask, snorkel, and fins.

If you are part of a large group, that is not a problem, as Captain Mark works with a number of captains who can accommodate you. He can also provide lodging if required.
