The Flamingo is well set up for up to 25 guests and features a large flybridge, plenty of seating all around the boat, rod holders for all guests, and an enclosed glass lounge. There are also male and female toilets. Fish are no match for you, your friends or family when you come aboard the Flamingo.

The Flamingo Fishing crew use quality Penn tackle and specialize in drift fishing, bottom fishing, heavy tackle, and jigging. They will be on hand to guide you through the best methods to increase your chances of landing various species, such as Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Grouper, Snapper, King Mackerel, Barracuda, Blackfin Tuna, Amberjack, Wahoo, Bonito, Mutton, Shark, and Sailfish.

On offer are exciting 4-hour trips that depart daily at both 8:00 am and 1:00 pm. The packages include rods, bait, tackle, and fishing licenses. Junior anglers are very welcome on board, while children 5 years old or under fish for free. You are welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks, however, no hard liquor or glass bottles can be brought on board the vessel. There is all-day gated security-patrolled parking.

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.
