Islamorada’s back country has some of the best Tarpon, Bonefish, Snook, Red fish, Permit, and Trout fishing in the world. We’re also just a short boat ride from the Everglades National Park for Spanish mackerel, black drum, sharks and sea trout.

Meet us at the dock at World Famous Bud and Mary’s Marina or, depending on where you’re staying, we can easily arrange pickup by land or water.

We love our repeat guests and we love to give the seasoned angler an exciting new experience every trip. But, we also welcome the first timers with patience and encouragement. Bringing the kids? We’re happy to customize the day to keep everyone happy.

If you’re looking for an unbelievable day on the water Flats or Fly Fishing in the Backcountry of Florida Bay or if you’re interested in the wilderness of Everglades National Park give Captain Mike Venezia a call and we’ll plan your perfect adventure.
