Redbone Sportfishing Charters is dedicated to Florida flats fishing with Captain Gary Ellis who knows every nook and curve where the fish like to spend their days and will take you there. He has been fishing the area for over 30 years, and is a passionate tournament participant - having been a president of the Redbone Celebrity Tournament Series, a non-profit organization which collects funds to fight Cystic Fibrosis since 1988. He founded the organization after his newborn daughter NIcole was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis and has since made an impact on the research which in turn has helped prolong the lives of sufferers from teenage years to mid thirties. Captain Gary and his wife Susan continue to fundraise for this cause.
HIs boat is an 18 foot Action Craft flats boat, which was originally built in 2008, and is powered by a 115 HP MERCURY Opti-Max engine with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. This is a sound and fast vessel, which was purposely built to adapt to the Florida flats. This boat has a GPS, life jackets, an icebox to preserve the freshness of the catch until you return to shore, as well as fly-fishing equipment.
Redbone Sportfishing Charters will take you to the best spots of the Florida Flats in the Islamorada area, and will put you on species such as Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Red Snapper, Bonefish, Barracuda, Cobia, Jack Crevalle, Permit and Spotted Seatrout. Captain Gary will provide all the necessary equipment including rods, reels, tackle, fly-fishing equipment, lures and live bait, a state of Florida valid fishing licence, and will also clean and fillet your catch once you get back on shore. He will also provide drinks and snacks on your trip. If you are taking the full day trip, you are advised to bring lunch. Other than that, you will need sunglasses, hats and sunscreen to shield you from the warm Florida sun.
