Charter on 20' Center Console from Islamorada, Florida
The Boat To fish shallow waters, you need a boat with a shallow static draft as well as running draft. In other words, the Pathfinder draws 11 inches in neutral but can actually traverse water as shallow as 7 inches when running. Of course, when running in water that shallow, you don't dare stop or the 11-inch draft takes precedence. Better to trim the engine up and jam the throttle forward. Where this Pathfinder shines is in a nasty, close-together chop like what you frequently find in inlets and across open bays. Run through that in a flats skiff, and you'll be inches shorter at the end of the day, thanks to spinal compression. The Pathfinder runs through it smoothly - the higher topsides, more-pronounced bow flare and deeper deadrise make it a better ride.

Additional Terms & Information
Booking and Cancellation PolicyFAQs FAQS "How long have you been fishing?" - I've been guiding in the Keys for more than 10 years, but I've been fishing all my life. Check out my Bio page for more info. "What kind of fishing do you do?" - Fly fishing is my specialty, but I can show you a great time with a spinning rig too. "What's your boat like?" - I have three boats to accommodate all situations: two shallow-water skiffs and a larger bay boat, great for taking out families or hitting the near shore patch reefs. Check out the My Boats link for more info. "Where do we leave from?" - I typically launch from the Angler House Marina - a full-service marina with bay-side slips at mile marker 80.5. We can make arrangements to meet elsewhere if necessary. Just call me a day or two before the trip and we'll work it out. "Where will we go?" - The Everglades, Florida Bay and near shore Atlantic waters are my typical fishing grounds. "I want to learn to fly fish. Can you help me?" - Yes! A preliminary fly casting lesson can be scheduled on land before we ever hit the water. Once you're on the boat, the instruction continues and before you know it, you've caught your first fish on fly! "Can I book a day just for me, and one with my family and kids too?" - Of course. I love to foster the love of fishing in the next generation. Between the fishing and Florida's amazing wildlife, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
