Captain Sam Rojas has been fishing his whole life and he’s prepared to help you land something unforgettable, from the exotic Peacock Bass to the mighty Tarpon.

You will fish aboard an 18’ Makee powered by a 115 HP Mercury engine. This craft is fitted with top of the line tackle and advanced fishing technology. On board you will find Shimano fishing gear at the ready. Capt. Sam can also provide fly fishing equipment and children’s fishing rods upon request. There’s room on board for three passengers and children of all ages are welcome.

Fishing in Markham Park gives you the chance to target Peacock Bass, Largemouth Bass, Snook, and Tarpon. These fish are a sight to behold, some of them known for their excellent fighting power and others for their unique patterns. You can join Capt. Sam for a full day on the water or come aboard for a few hours whenever it suits you. Fishing at first light and sunset allow you to take advantage of the best bite.

Even when you don’t feel like casting lines, the waters of South Florida have a lot to offer. Come aboard for an eco tour and get up close with a variety of birds, alligators, and more. Capt. Sam provides snacks and drinks. He can provide beer upon request, or you are welcome to bring your own alcohol.

Your trip with Sam Can Fish includes fishing gear, snacks, and drinks. Just be sure to bring a freshwater fishing license. Depending on the species, you are welcome to keep your catch.

You can also meet Capt. Sam at Blue Lagoon in Miami, Everglades Park or Lake Ida in Delray Beach, whatever works best for you! Come spend a day in South Florida fishing for a catch you won’t soon forget!
