Florida Keys & Everglades Fishing Charters
Captain Dave Perkins offers professionally guided fishing charters in the upper Florida Keys (Tavernier, Islamorada, Key Largo & Plantation Key), Everglades National Park (Flamingo) and Florida Bay. I offer 1/2, 3/4 and full day guided fishing charters. The Florida Keys and the Everglades offer endless opportunities for exciting fishing action year round. These are some of the most productive waters in the world and I have a near lifetime of experience fishing them.
I specialize in backcountry, inshore and flats fishing which gives you an opportunity to relax in a wide variety of Nature’s most beautiful and surreal settings while pursuing the adrenaline rush of the screaming reel and the leaping fish. Some of the species that we will target are aboard my 18′ Action Craft flats boat are Snook, Sea Trout, Permit, Redfish, Tarpon, Bonefish, Snapper, Mackerel, Pompano, and several species of Sharks. They can be caught on spin, conventional or fly tackle. I use the best gear and tackle made, and take pride in its upkeep and maintenance.
I have been fishing in the Florida Keys, Everglades, and around the world for over 35 years and I truly love it! Friends and clients can attest to my personable, easygoing, and friendly personality, please read my Google and TripAdvisor reviews. I am always willing to share my knowledge, learn more, and am open to new ideas and techniques. Anglers of of all skill levels and ages are welcome! My background in teaching gives me good rapport with children. Running a summer fishing camp allowed me the opportunity to interact and fish with kids of all ages. I can pick up my guests at many Key Largo, Tavernier, Islamorada and Plantation Key hotels. Finally, my fishing charters are dog friendly; dogs are always welcome on my boats!
