I’m basically an Islamorada fishing guide where we’ll meet and launch to fish the Upper Keys flats oceanside and bayside over into the backcountry!
As an Islamorada fishing guide, you’ll enjoy fishing with me in the stunning Gulf waters and Atlantic Ocean in the Upper Florida Keys. We’ll fish the pristine flats and the spectacular backcountry over into Florida Bay also known as 10,000 Islands including The Everglades National Park. I am a proud pro-staff resident guide at Islamorada’s nationally-famous Worldwide Sportsman / Bass Pro Shop Bayside Marina which is my normal launch location but on occasion in our cooler months, I will meet anglers right at Flamingo in The Everglades National Park depending on your preference.
World Wide Sportsman / Bass Pro Shop Bayside Marina is an Islamorada fishing guide’s dream launch behind their beautiful two-story building at 81576 Overseas Highway, Islamorada, FL 33036 housing the famous chain known for its large, wilderness-themed stores & wide array of hunting, fishing & outdoor gear. Most often you’ll find me around the marina office. My skiff is first in line (on the left) in photo below.
From Miami International Airport or Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, take any east-west artery to get on Florida’s Turnpike keeping to the right at Hollywood’s exits to take FLORIDA’S TURNPIKE S/FL-821 S toward HOMESTEAD (aka Turnpike Extension) which takes you west out and around Miami International Airport then continuing on south going straight ahead when the Turnpike ends where it becomes US 1 in Homestead/Florida City. Then depending on launch location you’ll either turn right at the light on W Palm Dr to head to Flamingo following SR 9336 back to the boat ramps or continue on straight ahead to Islamorada down US 1 Overseas Highway noting our little green mile marker signs that keep you aware of your progress south. Watch when you pass mile marker 82 as 1/2 mile further on the right you’ll come to 81576 Overseas Hwy, World Wide Sportsman/Bass Pro Shop Bayside Marina, home to this Islamorada fishing guide.
