Spoiler Charters specializes in inshore, flats and backcountry fishing targeting Permit, Tarpon, Snook, Bonefish, and many more in and around Islamorada, FL. It’s a year-round action all over the rich waterways.

Captain Dave is an expert in Tarpon and Permit fishing and has guided his clients to 21 world records over the years, including two Tarpon fly tackle world records.

His 16’ Hell’s Bay skiff is perfect for fishing the skinny waters where Tarpon and Permit love to lurk, and is a great platform to sight fish from. The boat is powered by a 90 HP Evinrude E-tec engine. She comes equipped with GPS, a trolling motor, livewell, and safety gear. Up to two anglers can come along, which means these trips are a great way to hone your skills without the crowd. Captain Dale will gladly assist all anglers, whether they’re newbies or veteran fly fishermen.

Fishing licenses are provided for all on board, as well as all the equipment you will need for your day on the water. Of course, if you have a favorite fishing set, bring it along, or just let Capt. Dave know what you miss beforehand. You will need to bring your own food and beverages. Pack sunblock, polarized shades, a hat, and light clothes. And remember to bring a camera.

Captain Dave has been guiding for almost 50 years and knows the waters around Islamorada better than anyone else around. He is an expert in sight and fly fishing, and has landed almost 700 permit on fly tackle to date. He loves being out on the water and will do everything possible to make sure you love it too.
