The warm, tropical climate and the outstanding beauty of the Florida Keys attracts visitors from around the world every year, and Fish Finder adventures is here to show you why. Come and discover the area’s long and rich fishing tradition, as you go after some prized creatures in stunning waters.
Who better to show you around than a passionate, experienced angler? Captain Mark Sampson has been working in the recreational fishing industry since he was young, and has now been running charters since 1987. He knows exactly what makes a successful trip, and can’t wait to show you the riches of the Keys.
Step aboard the “Fish’n Fly”, a 17’ Maverick flats skiff, designed and rigged specifically for shallow water fishing. The boat is fast and quiet, equipped with a push pole and electric motor to allow you to sneak within casting range of even the spookiest fish. Up to 2 anglers are welcome aboard to fishing areas inaccessible to many other boats.
Sight fishing the flats is a combination of fishing and hunting, as the angler stands on the bow, searching the shallow waters before firing. While the waters may be "skinny," the fish are anything but! Get ready to come into contact with huge Tarpon, enormous Sharks, Barracuda and a host of other gamefish.
From February through April, you’ll have the chance to fly fish. Go after Tarpon, Bonefish, Sharks, Permit, Jacks, Barracudas, Redfish, Snook and countless other species that thrive in the shallow waters of the backcountry flats.
In between fish bites, you’ll explore waters full of sea turtles, coral, sponges, jellyfish, as you explore the mangrove islands full of marine plants and stunning birdlife. Come and discover the unique and stunningly beautiful ecosystem of Florida’s shallow water backcountry, and you’ll want to move to this little slice of paradise.
Fish Finder Adventures promises you an all-rounded fishing adventure to discover some incredible beauty. Come aboard and see for yourself!
