Backcountry Fishing In The Florida Keys

Experience amazing shallow water fishing in the Florida Keys!

Fishing in the Florida Keys varies from a simple day of Snapper fishing, in a quiet Florida Bay channel with your wife and kids, to a one-on-one brawl with a 150 lb.Tarpon — screaming all the backing from your reel.

The beautiful sights of the Everglades National Park are a short ride across Florida Bay and once there the fishing is spectacular! The list is varied from Snook, Redfish and Sea Trout to Tarpon, Snappers and HUGE sharks. At times, you can catch them all on one trip without really trying. So whether you are an experienced fisherman, a hardcore angler, or a first timer… Bamboo Charters has the experience, boat, and know-how to give you the Florida keys fishing trip of a lifetime!

If we had to say what our specialty is the answer is simple. We specialize in Family Fun Fishing! Our Captains, Matt, Joe, Eddie & Riley excel at showing new anglers of all ages the waters that we call “Home” every day. In no time we will have the absolute newbie fisherman casting and catching like a pro! We never forget that your vacation is our job. We all strive to catch greater memories for everyone on board our boats.

Experienced fishermen will enjoy great fishing with Bamboo Charters as well. Whether fishing for Snook, Redfish, Sea Trout on the flats in the Backcountry or in the Gulf for species like Spanish Mackerel, Mangrove & Lane Snapper, Cobia, Tripletail and many types of Sharks, We promise to keep you busy and challenge your skills.

Florida Keys Sandbar Fun

The Islamorada sandbar is nothing less than spectacular. It is situated less than a mile offshore of the Florida Keys and is a beautiful 15 minute boat ride from our dock. Once we are anchored up in the warm turquoise waters of the Atlantic, you can have your toes in the sand and a drink in your hand and not a care in the world.
