If you enjoy the idea of hands-on fishing with light tackle, then for you, inshore fishing is where it's at. And no facet of saltwater inshore fishing has experienced the explosive growth of saltwater sight fishing with fly and light tackle. Florida has no equal when it comes to this exacting style of fishing. You can't raise the bar any higher. South Florida has long been considered the cradle of saltwater light-tackle and fly fishing, pioneered by legendary, world-class anglers who paved the way for all of us on this region's renowned shallow grassflats. Sight fishing is primarily hunting where you stalk a variety of wary gamefish via pushpole on shallow saltwater tidal flats. On the shallow mud flats of Everglades National Park at Flamingo, depending on the time of year, you can expect to cast to redfish, snook, tarpon, seatrout, bonefish, black drum, and jack crevalle. I consider this fishery to be ideal for the beginner or intermediate sight fisherman. I have shared in the satisfaction of many a first-timer's first catch on the flats here. It's the ideal place to hone your skills. What To Expect Onboard: You will be fishing on board our fully rigged 17 foot Action Craft Flyfisher. This skiff is suited for shallow poling, and takes a chop better than many smaller and lighter technical poling skiffs. It features plenty of dry storage for your gear, and rod racks to handle up to ten rods. Powered by a Yamaha 115-horsepower 4-stroke outboard and a MinnKota Riptide electric on the bow when not fishing via push pole. We will provide your license, all tackle lures, flies and baits, an iced cooler for your lunch and catch, water and soft drinks. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.
I have been a fly and light-tackle angler in South Florida for over 40 years. In that time, I've held a U.S. Coast Guard Captain's License, and have guided in the waters of Florida Bay in Everglades National Park and in Biscayne Bay. I expanded my horizons to Florida's Treasure Coast, after Moving to Stuart, Florida in 1999. In the diverse fishery of the Indian River Lagoon and St. Lucie River and nearby beaches, I fish with everything from fly tackle to conventional surf tackle. In addition, I flyfish for largemouth bass in the southern Everglades, and have fished the coastal waters of the Northeast U.S., Texas, Louisiana and the Carolinas, with both fly and light tackle. I consider myself a well-rounded inshore saltwater angler. I am not a one-trick specialist. Florida waters have too much to offer year-round not to sample it all.
