Captain Zach Stells

Key Deer Boulevard
Big Pine Key FL, United States

Captain Zach Stells takes novice and seasoned anglers to the shallow waters of Big Pine Key. Fine angling here takes place everywhere - flats, channels and mangrove shorelines. If you want fly and sight fishing, come join Captain Zach.

You’ll be fishing aboard his 17’ Maverick flats boat - ideal to take up to two anglers looking to catch plenty of fish, or for some good old father-son time. The boat is equipped with navigational instruments, safety equipment and fly fishing gadgets, so you can focus on angling. And when you want to try sight fishing, just step on the platform and gaze over the water.

Fish here surely know how to bite. Captain Zach will step up his game to make sure you get a taste of action trying to reel in the Silver King, feisty Bonefish or big Permit. Plus, Barracuda inhabits these flats year round, so you’re in for a fight with the fanged-teeth aggressor.

Your captain is a seasoned fisherman and the time onboard with him will turn into a memorable trip. He welcomes children as well, and will bring the necessary fishing licence.

The trip rates include rods, reels and tackle, live bait and lures. You will have your catch cleaned and filleted. All you need to bring is some snacks, drinks, a cap and sunscreen. Also, don’t forget to bring some shades - you’ll want to be ready to spot the fish!
