Captain Sam Baker is located in Islamorada and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters.

Come on aboard with Capt. Sam, whose main priority is to get you on some fish. Expect to use light tackle and fly fish, based on the species you’re targeting. Speaking of which, you have the option of 4 to 8-hour trips, where you’ll be fishing for the likes of Tarpon, Snapper, Snook, Redfish, Permit, and Bonefish, depending on the specific season and the day’s weather.

You’ll be fishing from a 17’ Maverick boat with enough room for up to 2 anglers at any single time. It also includes an ice box.

When it comes to rods, reels, and terminal tackle, everything you need is included in the price. The captain will supply all the needed fishing licenses for your trip.

You’re welcome to keep all 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.

I grew up in Islamorada on the water. I started fishing with my dad before I could walk. By the time I was in middle school, I had a small skiff, and any chance I had, I was on the water catching fish.
