Flats Monster offers exciting adventures out of Clearwater, Florida. They fish the inlets and beaches for world-class saltwater fish species, cruising the flats and up to 9 miles nearshore. The crew specializes in reeling in species that the local waters have to offer, and they definitely know where the fish are hiding!

Enjoy your fishing trip aboard a brand-new 25’ Sea Hunt center console boat, which comes powered by a 300 Yamaha engine. It has a maximum cruising speed of 55 knots and can comfortably take up to 4 guests. Its navigational electronics include a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fishfinder.

The waters of the Gulf Coast are home to a diverse variety of game fish. Florida’s fishing is a year-round sport with each season offering its own excitement. Whether you want to sight cast for winter Trout and Redfish, target a trophy Spotted Seatrout or have a summertime live bait action for the mighty Tarpon and Snook – the crew will accommodate your every need and make sure your day on the water is a productive one.

Each trip with the crew comes inclusive with everything you need to put your catch together. You will be provided with fly fishing equipment, as well as St. Croix rods, Shimano reels, tackle, lures, live bait, and the fishing licenses for you and your party.

Growing up in Northern Utah I gained a love for the outdoors and fishing. I relocated to Florida at the age of 21. Still a kid, I did everything I could to understand this new fishery. Fishing for a living has been a dream come true for me. My passion for the sport and owning my own business drives me to go to every effort to offer a quality day to all of my clients. I specialize in light tackle live bait fishing. I educate my anglers in the small details that it takes to fool quality fish on live bait.
