Hey there Anglers,
Things have been heating up in the Everglades the last few weeks and the fishing will only get better! Just recently we the most sought after species of fish have shown up for this year migration! That's right people that means the TARPON are here! We have been having double digit days on hooking up with tarpon ranging from 80-170 pounds on fly and artificial baits. By watching how these fish are acting they are super excited just as much as us Tarpon junkies are! They seem so happy that I believe that its going to be an excellent Tarpon Season! Stay tune for pictures and videos!
Contact me via phone for any charter requests and lets get you out on the water!

I AM HERE TO TELL YOU THAT THINGS ARE COMING ALONG GREAT HERE IN SUNNY ISLAMORADA. THE DEBRIS IS BEING REMOVED AND IT IS ALMOST COMPLETED. HOTELS, RESTAURANTS AND OTHER BUSINESSES HAVE ALREADY OPENED BACK UP FOR BUSINESS. AS A FIREFIGHTER HERE IN ISLAMORADA WE WORKED TIRELESSLY AFTER THE STORM HELPING OUT OUR COMMUNITY. HELP IS STILL BEING SENT DOWN TO THE LOWER KEYS THAT RECEIVED THE BLUNT OF THE STORM AND WERE DESTROYED PRETTY BAD BUT WE ARE KEYS STRONG AND OUR NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIES IN MIAMI HAVE HELPED AND ARE STILL HELPING TO GET BACK THINGS TO NORMAL! SO COME DOWN AND CHECK IT OUT!
