About Early Bird Fishing Charters
Early Bird Fishing Charters is an offshore charter fishing business. Our boat, the EarlyBird is a 45' Alex Willis boat and is docked at Bud-n-Mary's Marina in Islamorada, FL. We take groups of up to 6 people on board with our captain and mate to fish for sailfish, marlin, mahi mahi, grouper, snapper and other pelagic fish. The boat has a head and full a/c in the cabin so you will be comfortable.

Captain Ross and first mate, Mike, worked very hard the entire trip to make our experience enjoyable. Both are very knowledgable about the waters and the Islamorada fishery. We caught blackfin tuna and multiple species of snapper.

Capt Ross and first mate Jay, provided us a great day of fishing last week. We caught a variety of fish, from snapper, mahi, and mackerel to black fin tuna. We would definitely recommend this group for half or full day charters.
