The Fish

Biscayne Bay sight fishing, one of the best places in the world to sight fish for trophy inshore saltwater species like Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Sharks, Barracuda, Jacks and many other species.  Light tackle here it’s the norm.

You will fish from our 18’ technical flats boat most of the day until those precious moments after and before low tide when we are wading casting to tailing fish.

Everglades E.N.P. is the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States.  It has been designated a Captain Martin CarranzaWorld Heritage Site, International Biosphere Reserve, and Wetland of International Importance.  Here you will find the most diversity of fishing opportunities in the world. As an Everglades fishing guide we get to explore these open saltwater flats, brackish water bays, freshwater canals and ponds that are home to Tarpon , Snook, Redfish,  Jacks, Trout, Sharks  and other species.

Islamorada Tarpon Fishing 

Known as the Sport fishing capital of the world, Islamorada is where backcountry sport fishing in saltwater and saltwater fly fishing were pioneered.

Islamorada’s unique location, lying between Florida Bay (the backcountry) and the Atlantic Ocean (the front side), provides an unrivaled diversity of fishing opportunities.

I consider Islamorada Tarpon fishing Mecca.

From late March to June the migration of giant Tarpon passes through Islamorada with Swiss clock precision and there’s no better fishing in the world than sight fishing for giant tarpon in crystal clear water no deeper than 6 feet.

Tarpon of all sizes can also be found in the back country year round.

Peacock Bass fishing guides – Miami Canals and Lakes 

Originally from the Amazon basin in south America, PB’s where introduced in South Florida in 1984 to control the growing population of exotic species. Butterfly peacock bass (Pavon in Spanish and Tucunare in Portuguese) are not really a bass but a cichlid.  Peacock bass provide a very intense fight with several Captain Martin Carranzajumps and mad dog attitude.

While fishing for Peacocks you may also catch other species like Alligator gar, snook, baby tarpon, Midas cichlid and other native and exotic species.

A lot of the fishing is done by foot on some locations in the Miami periphery (6 hrs) or on the Miami canals by flats boat.

I will provide all the tackle needed.

Everglades Fishing Overnight Camp

Starting this fall we are offering a 2 night/3 day wilderness trip in the Florida Everglades.
We will start our float trip in either Flamingo and search for the best spots to fish for snook, tarpon, redfish and other species.

We provide tents, cots, therma rest mats, pillows, all meals including wine, beer and some spirits, all fishing tackle (fly or spin), one guide per flats boat and camp aid on his own boat.

We will use the Chickees provided by Everglades National Park or the designated beach camps depending on weather and fishing conditions and species targeted.  Chickees are solid structures strategically located in different sectors of the park and have solid floors, roof and chemical toilet for our use.

Everglades National Park fishing camps are safe and constantly maintained and patrolled by the Park Rangers.
