Zoned In Charters

(39) Going fast!

Zoned In Charters takes you straight to the best fishing in Islamorada! Stalk the flats and the Everglades for some of Florida’s most prestigious fish while using top of the line gear and learning professional techniques.

Step aboard an 18’ Beavertail skiff powered by a 90 HP Mercury engine. Enhanced with a wireless trolling motor and a sleek design, this boat glides seamlessly through shallow waters as you chase the shadows of Bonefish and other iconic species on the Florida flats. Three anglers can fish comfortably aboard this skiff, and children of all ages are welcome.

You will be fishing Islamorada and the surrounding area with Capt. Zach, a flats fishing enthusiast who has been casting lines since he was a child. He loves putting people on fish and is eager to help all anglers reel in a catch. Book any trip with him and try poling the flats for Permit, Bonefish, and Tarpon when the season allows. Or run through the Everglades for Snook, Redfish, and more. Either way, Capt. Zach promises, “You’re going to have a great time!”

Capt. Zach will pick you up from local accommodations or he may even bring his boat to you! You can fish with him anywhere from Key Largo to Islamorada, hitting the flats to battle fish to your heart’s content. You can keep your catch and he will clean and fillet it for you.

Zoned In Charters provides a Florida fishing license and all the gear you need. Choose from a selection of rods and reels featuring names that professional anglers know and love, including Shimano, Penn, and World Wide Sportsman. You will also have superior fly fishing equipment at your disposal, including G Loomis and ECHO fly rods, Abel reels, and flies hand-tied by Capt. Zach himself.

Book your charter today and zone in on the best fishing in the Florida Keys!

Born and raised in North Carolina, Capt. Zach grew up hooking Bass, chasing Reds, and fishing for Trout in the Asheville Mountains. About a decade ago the Florida flats stole his heart, and he has never looked back since. The abundance of species and the explosive fishing action of the Florida Keys captured his attention, and he welcomes all types of anglers to come and enjoy these with him. Capt. Zach says, "For me, fishing is a disease and it's a joy to watch people catch the fish of a lifetime, whether Spinning or Fly."
