Deep South Fishing Charters

104080 Overseas Hwy
Key Largo FL, United States

Deep South Fishing Charters is a first class inshore fishing charter.  The company uses top of the line tackle as well as providing the most technical poling skiff available on the market: The Hells Bay Boatworks’ 2017 Professional. Weighing only 620 lb, the boat can float in just three inches of water, making it the perfect vessel for the local flats and backwaters. With both a push poll and access to a trolling motor if needed, the boat is versatile and can be used for all sorts of fishing, traveling out to up to 20-30 ft water depth when targeting Tarpon, but staying in shallower areas for Redfish, Bonefish, Snook and more. With a live well on board, the boat is well equipped for a day on the water.

Deep South Charters specializes in light tackle fishing in areas such as Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys. A trip with them could range from poling the skinny water flats sight fishing and fly fishing for Reds and Snook to chasing the “Mighty Silver King” (Tarpon). They also run the maze of creeks and mangrove islands deep in the Everglades National Park, where you can not only catch some first class fish but also experience the rich and diverse nature the Everglades have to offer. If you’re interested in learning the ropes of fly fishing, Capt. Ryan is more than happy to help and tell you all about his well-practiced techniques - however, he also specializes in spinning tackle and conventional light tackle.

Both the avid angler and the novice fisherman eager to learn more about inshore fishing are welcome on board. The company is family friendly. All tackle, ice, water, fishing license, and safety equipment are provided: all you need to bring is drinks, lunch, and sunscreen!

This is a full service charter dedicated to ensuring the best day on the water with drag screaming action! Depending on where you are staying they can arrange pickup from your hotel or nearest marina: please inquire for detail

About the Captain

Ryan Booth
Key Largo, Florida, United States
Member since November 2015
Capt. Ryan Booth has been fishing in South Florida since he could walk. After he scaled down his fishing activities slightly to go to school he threw himself back into fishing on graduation. Now fishing is his main priority, and he's constantly exploring the inshore waterways around Key Largo, always learning, finding new areas and tracking the fish down. He likes to use his experience to always try to get his clients a guaranteed catch as far as the conditions and the fish will allow. He has been guiding professionally for the last two and a half years - previously to that he liked taking people out for fundraisers and family days out, giving him the experience to now run charters full time.

Ryan went out of his way to find fish. It wasn’t the best day out on the water but he worked hard to help us find fish. My wife dropped our keys in the water and he volunteered to jump in the murky water to try to find them. he stayed with us for two hours after the trip was over trying to help us out!

Captain Ryan took us out early am for a shot at a giant tarpon in the middle Keys area.  I had one good shot , tarpon fever hit, and I fouled the presentation, it was history.  The movement was weak and we decided to go to the backcountry in the everglades for big redfish.  When we got there it was quite for the first few minutes, then you could see a2 foot wake of red, redfish by the hundreds in the 10-15lb range with some 25 lb.+ plus bad boys.  We had 2 double and I caught the biggest on the fly rod.  Capt. Ryan is good young Captain that will put you on some great backcountry fishing the salt flats of the Keys.
