Backcountry/Night Tarpon Fishing

Experience amazing shallow water fishing in the Florida Keys!

This a combination type of charter where we leave the dock at 2:00 P.M. and rocket into the backcountry waters of the Everglades National Park. Here we will catch Snook, Redfish, Sea Trout and huge Sharks!

Then we will zip back to the deep water channels between the Keys and drift for big Tarpon from 6:00 P.M. or so until 8:00 P.M. You get the best of both worlds this way all in one action-packed trip with Bamboo Charters.


The great thing about the Keys location is that one side of the island chain looks to the Atlantic ocean while the other side looks out onto the waters of Florida Bay and the nearby Everglades National Park.

Combine this fact with Bamboo Charters’ Contender 25 Bay Boat and we can fish both sides of the Keys for just about anything that has fins! We can fish offshore for dolphin (mahi-mahi), tuna, wahoo, king mackerel and truly huge sharks! We can also look for amberjacks, permit, grouper and snappers on the many wrecks that lay just off the reef line.

Maybe you would like to take a look at the shallow water patch reefs that are just offshore of the Keys. Like the TV commercials say “But wait . . . there’s more!” Then we can spend the second half of the same trip exploring the waters of Florida Bay and the Everglades National Park! “The Sport Fishing Capital of the World” title is earned every day in Islamorada because of this very fact
