Bamboo Charters lets you explore Islamorada backcountry waters, inshore hot spots, Florida Bay everglades, nearshore reefs of the Atlanic and more. It’s year round, it’s productive, and it’s enjoyable. Whether you want to introduce your family to fishing, or are looking for a full day of exploration of these waterways, come along.

You will be fishing from an Islamorada Boatworks vessel, a 24’ bay boat that is powered by a 350 HP Mercury engine. She can take up to five people and give them a quick ride around the local fisheries. The boat is rigged with the navigational electronics, stores safety equipment, has a live bait well, an ice box, a wireless trolling motor, and features a tower from which you can spot the fish easier.

As for the fishing, you can target Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Shark, and much more. These waters may surprise you on an average day, and the season stays solid throughout the year. You can try trolling, popping, jigging, and much more, depending on what might work the best for your trip.

When packing for the trip, bring a cap, sunblock, sunglasses, and food and drinks. The crew will take care of the fishing gear and will supply water and bottled soda. If you want to take your catch home, the crew can clean it for you.

The crew is professional and focused on providing a nice fishing experience. Bamboo Charters is operated by Captain Matt and he has other boats in the fleet.

Eric was great! He was so accommodating to what we wanted to fish for, we caught Speckled Trout, Shark , Barrracuda, Ladyfish, and wrapped it up with Mangrove Snapper, and to top the day off ( on Eric’s recommendation) we just had a wonderful meal at Lazy Days , where they cooked our filets to perfection on a sampler of preparations! Highly Recommend Bamboo! For a Keys experience
