Coastal Outfitters Sport Fishing

A ride with Coastal Outfitters Sport Fishing is the most enjoyable way to get to the waters of Islamorada. If you are up for the challenge, choose the fish you want to target and feel free to join the knowledgeable crew. And don’t forget to take your kids!

You will be welcomed aboard a newly built Bonefish Malvado boat. It is a unique 26’ long fishing platform for 6 guests, powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine. Its double step hull provides a smooth, dry ride, while there is plenty of comfortable seating for all on board. With a full tower and over size shade canopy ready to be added to the boat, it is probably the best example of a hybrid bay boat you can find.

The boat is equipped with Shimano gear as well as spear guns for spearfishing. Before heading out for the main target, you’ll catch live bait.

Summer time is the best for heading offshore to catch Tuna and Mahi Mahi. In Spring and Fall Tarpons are all over the bridges and passes, as well as Snook and Redfish in the backcountry. Go to the reefs and patch for Yellowtail, Mangrove and Mutton Snappers. Winter time is excellent for targeting Sailfish and Kingfish, when they are all over the reefs and offer an amazing battle.

The crystal-clear water on the reefs is ideal for snorkeling. The Coastal Outfitters Sport Fishing crew will provide you with all the necessary equipment. Apart from that, all the fish you catch and keep will be cleaned and filleted for you.

I became a fisherman because of my love of the outdoors and the ocean. I became a charter captain for my passion of bringing people to these experiences that most will never have in their lifetime. I have developed my style of fishing based on action and adventure. We literally hunt down the fish of target then throw live baits at them to get them all worked up – the end result is amazing and unforgettable.
