Hello and welcome to Florida Keys Shallow Water Flats Fishing. Are you...

Hello and welcome to Florida Keys Shallow Water Flats Fishing. Are you ready to fish the gin clear flats of Islamorada, Key Largo and the Everglades in the Florida Keys? Come on down! I'm an amicable and patient guide who will work hard to make your day on the water a success. I have lived and fished in the Keys for over 30 years and have been guiding fisherman just like you on the flats of the Florida Keys for over 20 of those years. Whether you choose to fish for tailing bonefish and redfish or giant tarpon, I assure you an enjoyable, interesting and exciting day in the Florida Keys. Though I primarily sight fish for these gamefish, we can fish for easier targets as well if your skills are not as high as your expectations. For the novice fisherman, I'll provide friendly fly fishing or light spinning tackle instruction. For the accomplished angler I can help to fine tune your casting skills. Expert? Our game fish should provide quite the thrill and challenge you're looking for.

Captain Barry was extremely knowledgeable and very professional; we caught a ton of fish (a nice mixed bag) despite less than ideal water and weather conditions. He also took the time to point out amazing marine life and give us interesting facts about the area.

My wife and I took our two teen-age boys fishing with Capt. Barry last week. It was an incredible experience that far surpassed our expectation. We had no experience whatsoever, and from the first cast on, it was constant action! My boys were in fishing heaven. We all caught many fish, including lady fish, sea trout, snapper, a catfish of...

My husband and I had a great time fishing with Captain Barry! He had us catching fish on the flats including small sharks! He was helpful and patient and had a lot of information about the area to share. His boat was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely book another trip with him next time we go down.

Whether this is your first time or your 100th time hiring a captain you want the following; attentive, patient, knowledgeable, personable and authentic. Sure you can fake some of these attributes...but you can't fake them all. Barry is the real deal. He's just a good guy who has the best job in the world and believes in paying that forward... More

Barry took us to a couple of his fishing spots in which we caught a bunch of Mangrove snappers. He then took us sight fishing in the flats where we managed... More

Barry is a great guy, very knowledgeable, kind of person you are happy to spend extend periods of time on a boat with. If you did not want to talk much he would probably know to leave you alone... if you ask questions about the keys like I did he is going to tell you a ton of really great... More

Captain Barry was an amazing guide. I was first impressed with all of the information he provided on his website and after I put down my deposit. He had the relevant instructions for us so we knew where to meet, what to bring, etc... before the trip Barry was prompt in his communications and responsive. When we met him he... More
