Matecumbe Sportfishing – Keys Style offers a selection of trips exploring the stunning Everglades National Park. You’ll not only get to witness the area’s extraordinary beauty, but you’ll hunt fantastic game fish such as Tarpon and Snook, as well as delicious table fish like Snapper, Trout, and more. 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 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 an issue. She comes with an anchoring system, state-of-the-art Lowrance GPS and fishfinder, and wireless trolling motor to get you on the fish without the spooky fish noticing, and keeping 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 yourselves 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 Snappers and Trouts not letting up easily. You’ll get your reward, though, with Capt. Mark’s cleaning and filleting service preparing your catch to take home.
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? With Matecumbe Sportfishing, you’ll get a real Keys experience, which is surely what you came for! 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!
