Take a trip through one of the most beautiful and unique environments in the country and catch some amazing fish - what more could you want?

The 17 ft Back Country Ghost you will be using is the perfect tool for the job - a famously solid and well-built vessel with a nice shallow draft, so even the skinniest waters won’t be safe.

About the Captain

Mark Byrnes
Islamorada, Florida, United States
Member since April 2016
Capt. Mark Byrnes is a Florida native fishing guide, born in Miami in 1953. He started fishing in the Florida Keys when he was a young child. As soon as he was old enough to drive he was spending weekends fishing day and night on the old rickety wooden catwalks attached to the Keys bridges. He was usually successful in bringing home snapper and grouper for his family to eat. For his own enjoyment he discovered jumping tarpon and the thrill of seeing these monsters explode out of the water. In the 70's and 80's his passion was Offshore Fishing in small center console boats...However, he always liked to explore the Keys flats and backcountry of Florida Bay and the Everglades every chance he got. Slowly but surely he became hooked on the shallow water inshore scene.
