Zoned In Charters - Key Largo

Let Zoned In Charters help you hook the fish you’ve always wanted! Join Capt. Zach in Key Largo, Florida and discover why they call this place the fishing capital.

Experience flats fishing like never before aboard an 18’ Beavertail skiff powered by a 90 HP Mercury engine. With a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots, this craft will take you to the heart of the action in no time. She comes equipped with a fishfinder, GPS, and a wireless trolling motor, giving you the power to find and follow the fish no matter where they lead you in these shallow waters.

On board you will find high quality spinning gear, featuring choice brands such Shimano, Penn, and World Wide Sportsman. Fly fishing equipment is also available, including ECHO and G Loomis fly roods, Abel reels, and flies that your captain himself tied by hand.

While fishing Islamorada and the surrounding area you can target some of Florida’s most sought-after species using a variety of techniques. Capt. Zach will demonstrate how professionals rely on sight fishing, spinning, and fly fishing to catch prizes darting just below the surface and hiding in nearshore reefs.

Even if you can only spend a few hours on the water, you can try it all. Allow Capt. Zach to lead you through the Everglades and the flats, fishing for Redfish, Snook, Permit, Barracuda, and Black Drum, among many others. You can keep your catch and Capt. Zach will clean and fillet it for you.

Zoned In Charters provides a Florida fishing license and all the essentials you need when fishing in Islamorada. All you need to bring is a positive attitude, drinks, and a snack (but no bananas!). Remember to protect yourself from the sun and to pack any medication you need to prevent seasickness.

Book your trip today and experience the unforgettable thrill that Islamorada fishing has to offer!

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."
