More About Fun Fishing

Bamboo Charters offers these trips for all skill levels and ages.  Families get to laugh and relax together and everyone is "off the grid" on these trips, no e-mails no phone calls no worries.  We are looking to catch fish, any method, any where, any time you want.  Making smiles and making memories is our focus on this trip. 

From our location here in Islamorada we are just a short boat ride to the fertile reefs of the Atlantic Ocean, the wrecks and rock ledges of the Gulf of Mexico and the Everglades National Park. All of these offer a wide variety of fish and fishing styles. Your captain for the day will discuss the days options and find out what you would like to make of it then its off to see what you can catch.

Fun Fishing the Backcountry

The backcountry is the body of water that on a chart of the area labeled Florida Bay, this is the back side of the Upper Florida Keys from the top of Key Largo, down to Long Key. This shallow bay is 95% Everglades National Park and protected from commercial fishing, because of this fact we are graced with a very fertile fishery. Sea Trout, Grouper, Snook, Ladyfish, Sharks, Permit, Sheepshead, Tarpon, Red fish, Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Bonefish, Pompano, Jacks, Tripletail and all types of Snapper can be caught in Florida Bay! It is not unrealistic to catch most of the fish listed here in a half day charter.

Bamboo Charters dock is a short boat ride to these waters, how about 10 minutes to lines in for some locations! We use a mix of live baits, Hook Up Lures buck tail jigs, plugs and other artificial baits. Bamboo Charters uses 8-10 pound spin outfits for most of the fishing here spooled with quality line are at the ready always and of course your professional captain is there to assist in any way. Fun fishing in the bay is similar to fishing in any lake or river back home in that you will be casting and retrieving your baits, but with one HUGE difference, you will be catching lots and lots of fish! The fact that big Tarpon, Shark or Cobia will crash the party on the bay, we always have a heavy spin or conventional outfit at the ready. From one cast to another you just don't know who you will pick a fight with next out there.

Whats all the Fun about

Bamboo Charters Fun Fishing trips are perfect for a group of buddies, families, the girls and even for a corporate group looking to take a break from meetings while here in the Florida Keys. If you are looking for some relaxing time on the water in a no pressure and beautiful setting, then you are in the right place.

What Can I Catch on the Fun Fishing Charter?

Just offshore on the Atlantic side of the Florida Keys you will find a long series of reefs; this is the Florida Reef Tract. It's a series of live bottom areas, patch reefs and vast expanses of high profile corals. These structures are the foundation for the whole ecosystem, this is where the food chain begins. Baitfish congregate around these areas and so it goes that the different species of snapper, grouper and mackerel come for a meal. During the Winter season we are always mindful of the fact that a lone sailfish or even a pod of these high jumping, hard charging fish can show up around the boat! We always will have a 15-20 lb spinning outfit ready to pitch a live bait to on of these beautiful fish. Kids get a thrill when we troll tube lures for toothy Barracuda around the reef and light house structures, these fish put on a show and have a grin that only a dentist could love. Consider some fast action reef fishing on your next trip with Bamboo Charters.

Fun Fishing the Gulf Of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico offers fishermen several different fishing options. Reef and rock pile fishing, wrecks and vast grass prairies all can be found in the Gulf. Depths here run from 2 feet to 40 feet and the list of fish you find here varies between the backcountry species as well as the offshore fish. It is not unusual to fish the Gulf for a part of your charter then pick up anchor and head into the adjacent backcountry waters of the Everglades to do some shallow water fishing. For that matter we will some times run to the offshore waters of the Atlantic as well. All three areas are just that connected. The Fall and Winter season is a great time to fish the Gulf. Huge schools of Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish swarm the Gulf and cause BEDLAM out there. It doesn't take much time at all out on the Gulf to get things going, once the chum bag hits the water its game on! The center console of a Bamboo Charters boat looks like a porcupine as it bristles with rod and reel combos rigged for all types of action!
