Backcountry Captains

Our skilled and experienced back country captains know just where to take guests for the best backcountry fishing in Islamorada. Backcountry fishing boats are smaller, seating up to 4 guests comfortably. They usually stick closer to shore, searching and exploring the nooks and crannies of our beautiful Islamorada coast for fish such as bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook and redfish.
