Florida Keys charter fishing guide

An excellent skiff and proper tackle is so terribly important to the success of a Florida Keys charter fishing guide and I proudly maintain two top-of-the-line skiffs with angler casting platforms and optional leaning rails and support cage as seen on the Accessories page. Watch my many videos to see them in action and check out the Tackle page!


As a Florida Keys charter fishng guide, I captain two magnificent skiffs that are very specialized, technically-advanced fishing craft and both skiffs are outfitted with a custom poling platform so I can pole you into undisturbed fish for hookups that will be many with exhilarating fish fights and catches.

My Islamorada 18, the larger of my skiffs, is a truly phenomenal craft from Chittum Skiffs as it has craftsmanship and technology light-years beyond anything else on the water  (seen here with the optional – available on request tarpon-season flyfishing cage.)  The lightweight construction paramount to a Florida Keys charter fishing guide skiff allows me to pole into areas of extremely shallow water seldom ventured into before and therefore fishing these areas is like a blessing.  To be in a location so untouched and visited only by a lucky few, that is inshore fishing at it’s best.  It is truly a miraculous skiff and I have customized it to provide greater angler comfort and increased maneuverability.  It is powered by the quiet all-new 2015 Mercury 115 hp outboard and running is like riding on a cloud.

My Hell’s Bay Boatworks 16′ Whipray, the smaller of my two skiffs,  is perfect for fishing the shallow waters surrounding the Florida Bay, Upper Keys and The Everglades National Park.  The skiff is fast, stable and has been customized particularly to suit the fly angler so I can pole into the skinniest of waters to sight fish with greater presentations and hookups and any fly angler will be happy he chose me as their Florida Keys charter fishing guide.   It is powered by a dynamic and dependabale Mercury 50 hp outboard.  My Whipray saw a lot of action when I worked with TV host Chad Crawford for an episode on his show!
