Matecumbe Sportfishing – Keys Style offers a selection of trips exploring the stunning Everglades National Park. Captain Mark Byrnes is a native who has been fishing the Keys for 50 years, and knows every nook and cranny of these winding waters.
His 17’ Back Country Ghost flats boat is the perfect tool for the job – a solid and well-built vessel with a nice shallow draft, so even the skinniest waters won’t be an issue. It comes with an anchoring system, Lowrance GPS, and a fishfinder. There’s a wireless trolling motor to get you on the fish without the fearful ones noticing, and keep you in place as you start enticing the bite and reeling them in.
You’ll be fishing using top-of-the-line rods and reels, for a choice of light tackle or fly fishing. Prepare for a thrilling experience trying to reel in a Tarpon or Snook, some of the trickiest around! You’re also in for a test while fishing the flats and mangroves, with the Snapper and Trout not letting up easily.
You’ll get your reward, though, with Capt. Mark’s cleaning and filleting service preparing your catch to take home for a delicious meal. You’ll not only get to witness the area’s extraordinary beauty, but you’ll hunt fantastic game fish, and some mouth-watering specimens.
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? Let Capt. Mark show you these rich waters and stunning beauty, not to mention a fantastic day’s fishing. Get booking, hop aboard, and get hooked!
With Matecumbe Sportfishing, you’ll get a real Keys experience, which is surely what you came for!
