Overview
What to Expect
Itinerary

The captain will pick you up on a 17 foot Hewes Tailfisher that is specifically designed for fishing the inshore shallow waters that many other boats cannot access. Depending on where the bite is hot you will head to a variety of secret fishing locations such as mangrove creeks, canals, rivers, bridges, and flats. Your technique and gear can be altered depending on the guests level of experience. Guests of all levels of expertise are welcome from fly fisherman to first timers, and Zach is more than happy to teach first timers. Expect rod bending, and drag screaming action for the four hour half day trip or 6 hour 3/4 day trip. Anything from tarpon, snook, barracuda, sharks, and jack crevalle can be expected on your trip with many other species being regularly caught as well. Just let the captain know what you want to catch and he will do his best to put you on the fish. The captain will perform all the rigging, un-hooking fish, and all other duties so the anglers can focus on having a fun time and catching as many fish as possible! Don't forget to bring a camera so you can take a photo of that fish of a lifetime!

My 13th trip with Captain Slip, AKA, Captain Zach Routman, began on an auspicious note when he arrived at the dock with a livewell full of freshly caught Mullet. Fishing with Zach during the annual Mullet Run migration is like being with a Zen Fighterpilot in combat. "Caught,
