Running angling trips out of Miami, Stay Fishy Inc. invites you to experience Miami’s backyard and what it’s like to navigate the local waters!

With Capt. Diego, whether running and gunning various land-based spots in Miami, zig-zagging through the urban inshore systems, or getting lost in the Everglades backcountry, his goal is to keep you fishy! He’ll do his best to ensure you have a fun day full of fishing. He specializes in light tackle, fly-fishing, jigging, popping, and spinning, all to get you on that bite. This involves 4 to 8-hour trips, mainly fishing for Tarpon, Snook, Jack Crevalle, Bass, Shark, and Redfish, depending on the season and weather conditions.

Your fishing adventure starts on an 18’ Sea Ark boat that can safely take up to 6 anglers. This boat features an ice box. Land-based fishing is also available, no boat necessary.

All the necessary fishing gear is included in the price of your trip. All that’s up to you is to use it as best you can. As for fishing licenses, everything will be taken care of by the captain, so you don’t have to worry about it. You’ll be able to keep any legal species caught during the trip.

The price of your trip also includes complimentary drinks, but you’re welcome to bring your own. Please let the captain know if you have any questions or special requests. This is a children-friendly charter, so you’re welcome to bring your kids on for a fun fishing adventure.

On these trips, we will meet at a location and either carpool to various fishing locations or travel together in one vehicle.

Born and raised Miami local, fishing these waters since I was able to ride a bike and hold a rod at the same time. Peacock Bass, Snook, and Tarpon are my favorite fish to target. I enjoy stalking them on foot or boat, your choice!
