Background
Fishing charters in the Lower Florida Keys. My name is Capt. Zach Stells. I'm the owner and operator of Boneafide Fishing Charters in the Lower Florida Keys. I have had ad a passion for light tackle and offshore fishing since a young age. I got on the water at a very young and just loved every aspect of angling. Spin, fly, conventional. I just love to put my friends and my family on fish and the passion grew to where I could actually do this for a living which is the greatest job in the world. I’d love to get you out on the water. We offer a variety of charters for every lifestyle and budget. We have 2 boats available. 29ft. SeaVee, 17 Maverick. 305.986.3211
