Islamorada FL, United States

Charlie Boy Charters offers fun inshore and nearshore fishing trips for all the family in the Islamorada area. Whether you want to fish the backcountry for Redfish and Snook in the world famous Everglades National Park or head out to the Gulf to fish for Snappers and Mackerel, captain Joe Gargan will provide a professional service catering for all your angling needs.

You will be fishing aboard a recently restored classic 20 ft Seacraft. This adaptable boat is well adapted for fishing both the backcountry flats and the deeper waters of the Gulf and the upper Keys. It is a seaworthy vessel that copes well in most conditions and offers a safe ride to whichever fishing grounds you are traveling to. Equipped with navigational electronics to help you find fish and a livewell to keep your bait in the best condition, this boat will provide a good platform for you and your family to fish on.

Capt. Joe regularly fishes for Snook, Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Sharks, Tarpon and more on his charter trips. He usually uses live bait but carries an arsenal of gear in order to be prepared for differing weather conditions. More experienced anglers might enjoy fishing with plastics and topwater plugs, the use of which is also included in the price of a charter trip.
