Florida Fishing Headquarters

84001 Overseas Highway
Islamorada FL, United States

Florida Fishing Headquarters provides a fun fishing experience for your family and friends, and promises that you will leave with a memory to last you a lifetime.  Whether you are looking for a relaxing day on the water, or are a hard-core angler looking to catch some serious fish, Captain Steve will be able to accommodate you. He is really good at passing his knowledge on to his guests and will be able to put you on your catch if you follow his advice and promise to have fun while learning.

His boat is a Hewes Flats boat, which is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha SHO engine. It is a fast and secure vessel able to navigate the choppy waters easily. It contains a GPS, a VHF radio and a fishfinder, as well as life jackets, fire extinguishers, an ice box, a live bait tank and a wireless trolling motor to make it extra quite when trolling for certain species in the shallow waters.

Florida Fishing Headquarters will be able to put you on whichever species you are after catching - whether you want to target a specific species like Snook, Tarpon and Redfish, or just go out and catch as many fish as possible, like Snapper, Trout, Jack Crevalle, Sharks or Tripletail. He will supply you with the necessary equipment such as rods, reels and tackle. He will also catch live bait that you will use on your trip, and is also able to supply lures, a fishing licence, and upon return to the shore he can clean and fillet your catch.
