Fintastic Fishing offers unforgettable fishing trips out of the world-famous Robbie’s Marina in the heart of Islamorada, Florida. Peruse the flats and backcountry of the Everglades National Park with Captain Mike Patterson in search of numerous inshore fish species while enjoying the unspoiled wildlife in the surroundings.
You’ll head out on the custom-built 18’ Action Craft perfect for accessing shallow water of the local flats. When targeting easily spooked species such as Bonefish and Permit it is essential to be able to access shallow water as quietly as possible, and this technical poling skiff will allow you to do just that.
With Hummingbird electronics, an 8’ Power Pole anchoring system, a trolling motor and a Mercury 4-stroke engine all fitted on board – this boat has everything you need to target whichever inshore fish you are hoping to catch.
Capt. Mike will supply a selection of top quality fly rods by Sage, as well as spinning tackle. Use this to catch species such as Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, Snook, Trout, Redfish, and Sharks. Practice sight fishing from the boat’s front platform, and let your experienced shallow water guide share his favorite techniques with you during the trip.
All the rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures you will need during your trip will be supplied for you, and the crew even offers a fish cleaning service back at the dock free of charge. Children are very welcome on all trips, so take your family on an adventure of a lifetime!
Join Fintastic Charters and explore the waters of Islamorada for a productive fishing expedition!
