Come fish the shallow waters of the Florida Keys. Whether its fly fishing or spin fishing, you will enjoy fishing in the Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys. We specialize in sightfishing for snook, redfish, sharks, tarpon, permit and bonefish.

Half day or full day charters are available. We fish out of a 17.8 foot Hells Bay and use only the best tackle. If you're a beginner trying to catch your first fish - or an avid angler looking for that next great catch - we can accommodate you! Fishing from Miami to Key West. Call for availability.

My husband and I just finished two 3-day fishing trips with Capt Chris Jones of MudPuppy Charters. It wasn't our first trip and it certainly won't be our last. We have been fishing 1-3 days trips, as well as tournments with Capt Chris for 9 years now and he NEVER DISAPPOINTS us. As a fishing guide he's almost too good... More

We went to the Keys to try out some inshore fishing. The highlight of our trip was inshore fishing with Captain Chris Jones. We had no previous experience with inshore sight fishing, yet being avid bass anglers we thought we would give it a shot. What a blast! Even when we weren’t catching fish it was still a thrill to...

Decided to book a 3/4 day excursion with Mudpuppy Charters based on a recommendation from a friend that fishes the backcountry with him regularly. He did not disappoint! Caught my first (75 lb) tarpon on fly immediately that morning and jumped a few others. Then went looking for snook and caught a couple of those bad boys. Hooked some bonies... More

I found Captain Chris online after searching for guides in the keys. He's won an incredible number of tournaments (e.g. redfish, bonefish, shark, tarpon, etc.) and seemed to be in business for many years with positive reviews. He was pleasant over the phone and had cool pictures on his Instagram and Facebook accounts. I'm not a particularly skilled angler so... More

Captain Chris Jones turned out to be a wonderful Guide. I went with him based off of a personal recommendation from my dentist. I am an experienced North East Angler, but know next to nothing about fishing in the keys. Chris worked HARD to put us on gamefish and we spent at least an hour catching our own bait (pilchards)....

Chris is far and away the best guide we have ever had. We have fished with Chris 2-3 times per year since 2007. He has extensive knowledge about fly fishing and the areas he fishes. Chris is unfailingly patient and helpful with his gentle assistance in helping me hone my skills; at the same time, he challenges the skilled fisherman... More

Captain Chris Jones is an A guide. I have fly fished with Chris regularly for the last 10 years and I cannot remember a day when he has not found fish. He has led me to fish in Biscayne Bay, Key Largo, Islamorda, Flamingo, Marathon, Big Pine, Sugarloaf, and Key West. He is instructive, calm, supportive, and helpful. I have... More

My wife and I fish with Capt. Chris every chance we get. I wish I was an eloquent writer who could come up with an incredibly descriptive narrative about his skills as a guide and teacher. All I can say is that before my wife fished with Chris she was a bit skeptical of what her experience would be. Now... More

Capt. Chris Jones consistently gives you ever ounce of effort he has during the day. His knowledge of the backcountry is amazing. Even when those days are tough his attitude is always positive. I am in the guiding business myself and have nothing but the utmost respect for Chris's professionalism. I have fished with Chris for the past 5 years... More

Capt. Chris Jones is one of the hardest working Fishing Guides in the Keys, he has absolutely pole you all day,eagle eyes when it comes to sight casting for fish. My wife and I have fish Capt Jones for over five years twice a year.
