Flats Hunter Charters

1791 Bogie Drive
Big Pine Key FL, United States

Flats Hunters specialise in exactly what you would imagine - hunting the Florida flats and backcountry for Cobia, Bonefish, Permit, Redfish and much more. But they don’t stop there, as they also know all the best spots to hit the reefs further out for Goliath Grouper, Barracuda, Mangrove Snapper and Jack Crevalle, and even run specialist Snook and Tarpon night trips for those set on seeing the Silver King shine in the moonlight.

You will be fishing on board a 17 ft Dolphin Super Skiff equipped with GPS, fishfinder, and a livewell for the freshest bait possible, as well a selection of lures and all the tackle you will need for a wide variety of techniques, including fly and light tackle fishing, spinning, and even spearfishing.

Captain Brandon Sharpe is a fun-loving but professional captain who knows the Big Pine Key area inside out. Fishing is his passion and his favourite hobby, as well as being lucky enough to have done it professionally for many years. He is always more than happy to go all out in helping make your trip extra special. So get down to Florida, because the hunt is on!
