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.

He offers instruction in live bait, spin, and fly fishing, and will provide all the necessary equipment to put you on the fish.
