Clyde Morgan

Member since October 2018 Islamorada, United States
Background
I'm Captain Clyde Morgan, a US Coast Guard Licensed Master 50 Ton. I was born and raised in South Florida, and I have fished these waters my entire life. Along with my team of highly experienced saltwater flats fishing, Flats Anglers, we are dedicated to providing you a personalized and exciting World-Class Fishing trip in the Florida Keys, the Flats of Miami & Biscayne Bay, the near shore reefs and or, some Florida Backcountry Fishing in the Everglades, Flamingo Flats, and Florida Bay.
Techniques
I personally enjoy the pursuit of our local Inshore trifecta - Bone Fish, Spotted Seatrout, and Snook. But I also enjoy sharing my experience with you. When you fish with me, you’ll swear that I’m pointing at nothing. Trust me, and suddenly you’ll have the thrill of a lifetime on the hook.
