Captain Chris Barron of Stray Cat Charters runs a hugely versatile fishing charter service right here in the Florida Keys. With two boats that give him unmatched ability to reach the most exciting sportfishing grounds in the area, Captain Chris will take you on a southern Florida fishing adventure that you won’t forget. Running charters all year round for anglers of all ability levels, he caters to individual anglers as well as groups of friends and families.

Stray Cat Charters’ inshore boat is an 18 ft Maverick poling skiff that is ideal for navigating the local flats ad backcountry. Let the Captain pole you silently through the water as you sight fish for your target species, or sit back and relax as you meander through the untouched beauty of the Everglades. The boat can take up to three anglers and features a GPS and a Mercury engine to get you to the best spots around.

Mercury Pro Team guide Chris Barron will teach you the best techniques for catching the local species. He offers instruction in live bait, spin, and fly fishing, and will provide all the necessary equipment to put you on the fish. Whether you are after an elusive Bonefish or Permit, you want to try your hand at battling a prehistoric Tarpon, or you can think of nothing better than chasing the spotted tails of the delicious Redfish, he will help you make your angling dreams become a reality.

Just bring some sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, and a camera and get ready to catch some fish!
