Capt. Larry Sydnor Bass Pro Shop

I should be your Florida Keys fishing guide because the difference between a professional top Keys guide and the average guide is tremendous!

  • I have the physicality necessary for outstanding control of my skiffs on the pole.
  • I have an extremely large repertoire of spots to fish–which is essential when weather or fish behavior becomes unpredictable.
  • I provide the very latest in top quality high-tech equipment: boats + rods + reels + lures + flies -I tie all of my own- all of it!
  • I know everything from knots, hooks and flies to placing the boat just right for your cast.
  • I’ll know whether it is smarter to spend our day chasing tarpon, or whether other species present the better opportunity.
I supply all essentials including expert assistance and I'm passionate about what I do, so if you love to fish, come with me and stand on my bow and I will guide you to the fun and excitement of Florida Keys inshore fishing.

What you’ll fish for:

tarpon emerges
TARPON, PERMIT, BONEFISH, SNOOK, REDFISH, TROUT and more. And as your Florida Keys fishing guide we could consider for fun: barracuda, sharks, mackeral, grouper, snapper and more! The Upper Florida Keys fisheries are far superior to anywhere else in the United States.

Where you’ll fish:

Where I fish-Capt. Larry Sydnor
With me as your Florida Keys fishing guide, we’ll consider the flats oceanside and bayside in the Upper Keys into the 10,000 Islands backcountry over to Flamingo in the Everglades National Park. We’ll launch from World Wide Sportsman/Bass Pro Shop Bayside Marina, Islamorada or during our cooler months I can meet you at Flamingo to fish the backcountry.

How you’ll get there:

Capt. Larry Sydnor's Islamorada 18 Two magnificent skiffs are at the ready, and they are very specialized, technically-advanced fishing craft, each outfitted with a custom poling platform and that combined with my physicality assures we’ll have a successful and productive trip on the water.  Both skiffs have been customized to provide optimum maneuverability for more successful hookups and releases.
