About A Fishing Guide
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.

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.

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.

This guy knows his stuff!!!! A real deal local who you can immediately tell has put in time to learn these waters and how to fish them. My wife hasn’t fished a day in her life and Steve had her catching fish left and right!!! Do yourself a favor and book with Steve. You won’t regret it!

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.
