Shearwater Flats Fishing

5130 Overseas Highway
Stock Island FL, United States

Come experience the remarkable flats fishing the lower Keys and Key West has to offer. As far as angling is concerned, these waters are hard to match, and they offer world class flats fishing just a short boat ride away from the launching point. The beauty of the mangrove islands and white sand flats, combined with the area’s abundant wildlife, all make for an unforgettable and unique trip of a lifetime.

You will be fishing aboard the ‘Backcountry Ghost’, a 17 ft Backcountry flats boat that was specifically designed for poling through the shallowest of waters in search of Tarpon, Permit and more. Powered by a 90 HP Yamaha motor, the boat also features a live bait tank and a GPS and fishfinder.

All levels of angler are welcome with Shearwater Flats: everyone from the most serious fly fisherman to beginners can have a great time on board. Captain Andrew’s main emphasis is to give you the best opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime while making sure you enjoy your day on the water to the full.

About the Captain

Andrew Asher
Stock Island, Florida, United States
Member since April 2016
Captain Andrew was born and raised in Virginia Beach, where his passion for inshore fishing was ignited among the miles of inlets, estuaries and beaches. He saved up to buy his first fishing pole at the age of five and never looked back since, spending 15 years perfecting his fly fishing skills in the rivers of Montana and Colorado before moving to fish in Key West approximately ten years ago.
