An excellent custom boat and proper top-quality tackle is so terribly important to the success of a Florida Keys charter fishing guide and I proudly maintain a top-of-the-line fishing craft with optional angler casting platform, 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 a truly magnificent boat that is a very specialized, technically-advanced fishing craft and the skiff is 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.

Islamorada 18 owned by Capt. Larry Sydnor Florida Keys charter fishing guide
My Islamorada 18, a truly “skinny-water skiff”, is an amazingly 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 indeed a miraculous skiff and I have customized it to provide greater angler comfort and increased maneuverability.  It is powered by the quiet Mercury 115 hp outboard and running is like riding on a cloud.
