Silverking Charters

24775 Southwest 87th Avenue
Homestead FL, United States

Whether you’re after a flats fishing excursion or want to fish the backcountry anywhere from Biscayne Bay to the Florida Keys, Silverking Charters is a great choice. Captain Alex Zapata is an avid angler who is dedicated to fly fishing and light tackle fishing in all of the finest fisheries in South Florida.

Join him aboard his boat and enjoy a fun-filled adventure with your friends or family. You will be provided with top-notch fly fishing equipment to catch Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon, as well as quality rods and reels to land Snook, Redfish, and Trout.

Have a ‘father and son’ day out on the water or just bend a rod with your fishing buddies. Introduce your kids to the art of angling or break your own records. Capt. Alex will work hard to put you on top of the hottest bite!

Your boat for the day will be an 18’ Hell’s Bay Marquesa. It is a comfortable flats boat with a single 115 HP Yamaha engine, fresh on the water in 2018. The boat is “dead quiet” and can easily fish in just 8” of water. It is stable and spacious yet light and versatile. It features a GPS and a VHF radio, as well as all the necessary safety equipment, a wireless trolling motor, and professional accessories to make a great catch possible.

Once on board, you will find rods and reels by Daiwa, Penn, Hardy, Shimano, and Winston ready for you to use. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted by the captain so that you could try it for dinner later.

Your food and drinks are welcome on board. Just make sure you bring your desire to have fun with you!

Dad and 14 yr old son had an awesome, perfect day of fishing with Captain Alex - caught tarpon, snook, sea trout, jack, ladyfish and hooked a redfish. Saw crocodile, porpoise, and birds. Captain Alex was professional, knowledgeable and patient. He knows lots of good spots! Great guide! Thanks!
