Thursday, May 7, we took a backcountry everglades trip with Captain Kieth and he put us on sea trout and snapper. We also tried our hand at shark and tarpon fishing. All together had a great time out on the water and later eating the trout "lazy and super lazy day's" style. Saturday, May 9, we took an inshore trip... More

Have used this charter in prior years with very good results however this time around did not have a good experience. Boat was not clean and when we left for our fishing trip, captain had to stop and fuel up. Shouldn't have this been done before hand and not on our time? Captain also had to stop to get bait....

We went on three charters with Bamboo Charters. We have three young kids and the captains on Bamboo are excellent! We went with Captain Matt on one day and Captain Keith on another, thanks to Anna, the brains of the operation!!!! Everyone at Bamboo is the best! Matt loves the kids and Keith, I think now wants kids! Everyone loves... More

We booked two days of fishing. Day 1 had a strong storm blow in in the morning but they were still able to find the only break in the weather and have a great day of fishing. Day 2 was even better. Caught my first shark - about a 6' black tip. Keith did a great job in helping guide... More

Family of four from Wisconsin went backwater fishing with Keith for two days. His boat was clean and he had all the necessary tackle ready to go when we arrived. He really listened to what we wanted to fish for and put us on those fish (shark). We learned a lot about the fish in the backwaters and how to... More

My boyfriend and I went out fishing with Captain Keith. It was a great day! Caught countless sea trout and 5 sharks! Keith was a wonderful guide, full of information and stories. He really made the experience. Would definitely go out with Bamboo Charters again!

Called Ana at Bamboo Charters and she booked me with Captain Mark Byrnes. I wanted to take my 6 y/o son fishing on a back country trip. Really, Capt. Mark taught us about the flats and backcountry and had my boy fishing in no time. A true professional and very good with kids. Took us for Snapper fishing and had... More

Fished with Capt. Keith on Sunday, Feb. 22. Really nice guy, very knowledgeable. We cut through part of the Everglades Nat'l Park to get to his fishing spot on west side of Keys, about 45 mins away. The goal was to catch fish - we didn't care what kind or where...just catch fish. And that we did! We caught 20+...mangrove... More

Our 4-hour back-country fun fishing trip with Capt. Keith was the highlight of our March 2015 trip to the Keys. He was very personable, patient with the novice fisherman (me), and knowledgeable when interacting with the avid fishermen in our group. On top of that we caught a number of "keeper" trout for dinner that night, as well as numerous... More

Matt took my husband and I out for some backwater fishing. We had an AWESOME time!! Catching HUGE trout(I, of course, catching most of them) snapper and lady fish. Matt was entertaining, had great equipment, and a comfortable boat. He will even get your bait on and take off your catch, if you need him too. This fishing trip was... More
