Phlats Guide Services

56th Place North
West Palm Beach FL, United States

Phlats Guide Services invites you to enjoy a memorable day on the waterways of West Palm Beach, Florida. The charter is owned and operated by Captain Craig who has guided guests for the past 14 years in Palm Beach County for salt and freshwater species. Novice to experienced anglers are welcome as Captain Craig enjoys teaching.

Captain Craig has immense knowledge and experience on water and he likes to share it with others, leading them to their next trophy catch. He can take you fishing and lead you to your trophy Snook and Tarpon, Redfish, and other inshore species such as Trout, Sheepshead, Jack Crevalle, Blacktip Shark, Mangrove Snapper, Black Drum, and lots more.

If freshwater fishing is your thing, the lakes and rivers of Palm Beach County offer great Largemouth Bass and Spotted Bass fishing opportunities. These fish have excellent game qualities, with Largemouth Bass being so exciting to catch, it has a number of tournaments dedicated to it.

Fishing is done aboard a 24’ Travis Bay boat originally built in 2003 with a capacity for four anglers. Powered by a 250 HP Suzuki Four Stroke engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, the boat gets you from A to B quickly and safely. Using the onboard GPS, you will navigate these abundant waters and with the help of a fishfinder, you’ll easily locate productive fishing spots.

The vessel features a wireless trolling motor, a livewell, an icebox for the catch, and all the safety features including child and adult-sized life jackets. Captain Craig carrier fly fishing equipment as well as conventional rod and reel by Daiwa. He provides tackle, bait, fishing licenses, and drinks on board.

Phlats Guide Services offers four, six, and eight-hour inshore saltwater and freshwater trips to the Indian River and Loxahatchee River. So, if you fancy catching fish with a pro guide and learning from him, Phlats Guide Services is a great choice!

Absolutely awesome fishing trip. Big fish on light tackle! Had 3 trips in 3 days and Phlats was hands down the best. Will book again and recommend.

A Friend and I booked a Snook trip with Captain Craig on 8-19. As soon as I met Captain Craig, I know we were going to have a good day. The Captain was friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly, knew where the fish were. We had a great day. So much so, I am bringing my 8 year old and my co workers for future fishing trips as I was so pleased. If you are looking for a professional, easy going and experienced Captain, you can not go wrong with Captain Craig!
