About the Captain

Allen Moudy
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States
Member since July 2016
Although Captain Allen Moudy grew up in Pennsylvania, his family would often vacation in Florida where he spent time fishing the North Key West waters. They eventually moved down South in the early ‘70s when his parents bought the Flamingo business, which Capt. Allen now operates. With two boats in the fleet, Capt. Allen usually runs sportfishing charters aboard the “Quiet Squaw”, while he alternates running the “Flamingo” with other experienced captains in his crew. Capt. Allen has spent time fishing various locations, including the islands of the Bahamas and as far down as Bonaire, and has also contributed to articles that were featured in ‘Sport Fishing’ magazine.

Only ten people fishing on this big boat was a treat. Plenty of fish, I think I caught the most! Took our catch home filleted by Joe, good feed of trigger fish. One guy caught a skippie, two king Ifish and snapper joined all the triggers in the bin. Everyone enjoyed themselves.

The Boat was clean and the seats were comfortable. The waves went up n down but the Captain brought us stabil to the spots. In the meantime the Mate “J” was funny, friendly and asked everybody about his background and this is absolutely phenomenal. His jokes were top. Unfortunately I catched nothing but that´s part of fishing. Some other guys catched some snappers, a blue fish (beautiful - thanks for catch n release him) and a sea bass. Tomorrow I´ll fly back to Berlin, Germany and recommend everyone to go on this boat and give J a tremendous tip after the tour. He deserves it.

If you want to go deep sea fishing and don’t want to spend a lot of money then I highly recommend Flamingo Fishing. They are amazing!! We had so much fun and caught 2 fish, a 24” kingfisher and a 20” Queen triggerfish, which is getting mounted. First mate Joe was amazing. Very friendly, funny, caring and extremely helpful. Highly recommend Flamingo Fishing
