Description: 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.

Horrible weather conditions, high winds and other factors for three days straight made every move difficult then add my inexperience as a saltwater angler...Barry did not have it easy. He worked his tail off trying to put me... More

Captain Barry is an awesome fishing guide. He knows the Florida waters so well taking us to a places where we could catch fish. He is very experienced and was a wealth of information. Between the three of us, my husband and son, we must have caught 15 fish each. In the afternoon he took us to a special spot... More

I finished up with Captain Barry last weekend 3/1/15. I must say he was an excellent guide and I will be booking another (longer) trip with him in the next 5/6 months. His patience and knowledge of the flats was superb. I immediatly felt comftorable with him which was a concern due to bad guide experiences in the past. Even... More

My son and I went out with Capt. Barry last Tuesday, 2/24/15. He advised us to wear a jacket for the morning run out, even though the temp. was in the low 70's, and I'm glad we did. We're from NH where we are used to the cold, but because he wanted to go where he knew the waters would... More

Great weather!! And Barry took us to all the great spots in the bay so we could catch fish by the bunches. Barry was patient with me as a newbie, and also great managing my brother and father with somewhat limited mobility. Barry kept bait on the rods, unhooked our fish, navigated amazingly to all the great spots, and told... More

We had a great experience. My 12 year old and I went fishing on the flats for the first time. Capt. Barry did a great job with a bunch of novices. He put us on fish and we were catching fish immediately. He was a great teacher for my son and myself. I plan on going with him again.

My wife and I chartered Capt. Barry during our recent trip to the keys and it was a great experience. I have taken several other guides in past years and it was not nearly as fun as this trip. Capt Barry is kind, patient, and an excellent teacher. He works hard to put you on fish and never gives up... More
