Capt. Brett Hagood is an Islamorada native and 2nd generation fisherman with a passion for the water. He specializes in family friendly, light tackle fishing charters and eco-excursions in the near shore waters of our beautiful islands as well as the Gulf of Mexico and Everglades National Park. Comfort is key, as you’ll ride in a 24’ Shearwater bayboat complete with a t-top for that much needed shade! Whether you’re a salty seasoned veteran or a true novice looking for that first fish, Capt. Brett’s patient, insightful instruction will ensure your day on the water is a memorable one.
