About
I'm Captain Steve and I have fished my entire life, but specialize in guided backcountry fishing excursions in the Florida Keys. First-timers, families, couples and seasoned anglers are all welcome aboard to experience the raw beauty that is Florida Bay, Biscayne Bay and Everglades National Park. Based in Islamorada, I specialize in fly and light tackle fishing excursions from the Upper Keys through the Marquesas in Key West.

As others have said, Captain Steve knows his stuff. My husband and I have gone on other private guided charters in the Keys but none were as successful as this excursion lead by captain Steve. On first cast I had a mackerel on my line and the action barely stopped. We got more mackerel than we could eat so then we went for some crevalle jack for fun. We visited mangrove keys and marveled at the birds. Concluded the day watching tiger and lemon sharks chase our bait.

Captain Steve was knowledgeable, friendly and hospitable. To say that my husband and I are amateurs is generous but we felt like experts under the guidance of the captain. His bay boat was perfect for our trip and the Angler Marina was a nice spot with a tiki bar perfect for when we landed back.

We look forward to our next excursion with Captain Steve, A Fishing Guide.

Spent a half day with captain Steve. My 9y/o's 1st time fishing on the ocean along with my brother and father in law. We were able to balance enough volume for my son with catching some bigger fish to keep the adults happy. Really appreciated his knowledge, patience, and obvious care for what he does and the environment in which he practices his craft. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I have been fishing with Mike Webb for over 20 years. There aren't many guides who know how to fish Table Rock better than Mike. On Monday we had perfect conditions for once and Mike found where the quality fish were. Caught a 4 lb. Smallmouth (personal best) and several more quality fish. If you're in Branson or planning to visit and are looking for a great guide who is also very fun, look up Mike. He will take great care of you.

We had the best time with Steve! His communication is top notch from beginning to end. He is charismatic, professional and fun! We threw our lines in and after a bit, if we weren't catching Steve took us to a new spot. He is familiar with the water, fish species and genuinely cares about the experience you are having. He also shared his knowledge and passion for conservation with the Florida Keys Fishing Guides Assoc. He exceeded our expectations so much, that we cannot wait to come back and fish again with him. Please call Steve if you are looking for an exciting fishing adventure.

Fishing with Captain Steve was amazing. We loved it so much we did it for 3 days. Nothing beats the Everglades and the amount of wildlife you will see. Captain Steve knew where all the fish were. We caught everything-- a black tip shark, stingray, red fish, snook, mackrel, etc.

Went out with Captain Eddie just last weekend on a quick trip from the Chicago area. Eddie is Captain Steve's counterpart and I give him five stars. We never stopped catching fish of all varieties, and he couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I know there's lots of luck involved in fishing, but Eddie seemed to know just where the fish were in the vast waters off of Islamorada,, and knew just when to move to the next spot. I would seek him out for my next trip down there, which hopefully will be very soon..

I just went on my second trip with Capt. Steve..I honestly did not think it was possible to top the fun day we had with him last year, but he sure did! I got a fly fishing lesson from him in the morning, then we headed out to the ocean side and proceeded to catch at 10+ species of fish - including some goliath grouper...wow!!! He is such a knowledgeable, dynamic, and smart guide, and really works hard to make sure that everyone has a great time. Plus he's delightful company...don' think twice about fishing with Steve!!!

This was our first backwater trip and it was amazing! Captain Steve exceeded our expectations and provided the highlight of our vacation. We caught more fish than we could count and laughed with Captain Steve the entire trip. His knowledge and patience with two novice fishermen made the trip very relaxing. When we travel back to Islamorada we will plan our time around another trip with Captain Steve!

Steve is a great guide! We went up to the Everglades National Park and got into a hot bite with Snapper which made for a great dinner that night. Also cooked up Yellow Jack and Trout. We fished for two days with Steve and caught at least 10 different species, including shark and barracuda. Steve is a great at finding the spots and avoiding the storms. Also very good at educating the kids on everything about the Keys and fishing.

Steve is an awesome fishing guide but he was booked so we went out with Captain Eddie who gave us an amazing day!! . He found us trout (which was delicious that he cut up for us to take home) and many other great fun fish to catch. He told hilarious stories, found the spots where the fish were biting and made us want to go back the next day! Don't forget to bring some beer (if that is a critical component of your fishing which it is mine) they provide the ice and cooler. Can't wait to go back!
