I took my 12 yo son on a Flats fishing excursion today with Capt Bo Sellers on 8/20/13. It was the best fishing experience of our lives. First we had a ball catching the bait fish. We had Ladyfish to 4 pounds and a 6 pound Bluefish. Then Bo Sellers took us to the Shark grounds. My son caught 2 giant Lemon Sharks. The biggest was 6 feet long and was about 130 pounds. Bo is an expert in his field and taught my son all the light tackle techniques. Bo made today one of the most memorable days of my son's life. I highly recommend folks to go on a Charter with Capt Bo Sellers. His website is www.sightfishingkeywest.com. This was our first time traveling to the Keys. We plan on fishing with Bo the next time we are down here.

Captain Bo has taken me and my family multiple times
We talk about what we want to catch, and depending on the season, Capt. Bo puts us on the fish. We've caught permit, sharks, and this last time, as many Jacks, Sea Trout, Snapper and Ladyfish as my arms could stand. Great with kids, patient, educational about the water, the flats, and the wildlife. And nothing beats being out in the quiet in the middle of the flats!!!!

We had always talked about going flats fishing while on vacation in the Keys. So I did some research and found Captain Bo's website. We have gone for the past two years and have had a great time! He goes above and beyond to make sure you're having a good experience. If you have ever wanted to try Flats Fishing I highly recommend that you give Captain Bo a try.

Thank You Captain Bo...see you next time

Went on a half-day back country charter trip with Capt. Bo.

Bo was very professional and knowledgable. He put us on Jack Crevalle, Mangrove Snapper, Permit and even a Nurse Shark. Boat was spotless and tackle was first class. I would highly reccomend Bo to anyone looking for an enjoyable back country fishing experience.

A guided morning of fishing with Captin Bo was all that I expected and more. Great fishing for Permit and Bones but more over a Flats experience that was respectful of the beauty and wonder of a marine environment. Truly a great outdoor experience.

Bo Sellers put us on fish! We had shots all morning long for two days straight for tarpon, and good shots at permit and bones each afternoon. First time fishing with a new captain can always be a nerve wracking experience for both sides, but Bo has a great easy going style that keeps his clients relaxed and ready to fish. He is dialed into the flats around the Lower Keys and when we boated fish on fly and conventional gear within the first hour we knew it was going to be a special trip. I HIGHLY recommend Shallow Minded Charters both for Bo's friendly professionalism and his ability to put his clients on fish.

Went down to Key West with my wife for a wedding and wanted to do some shallow water fishing. A buddy put me in touch with Capt. Bo Sellers, so we drove to Summerland Key and couldn't have been happier. His boat and gear are all top of the line and kept in A++++ condition. He is laid back and doesn't stress out. It was a little early for tarpon but we were able to at least see some breaking the surface. The bone fishing on the other hand was a different story. My wife and I caught 7 bones which is a great day on the water.He is a true gentleman,and a pleasure to be around with. Have fished with many guides over the years and as I said earlier he is the MAN!!!!

A seasoned veteran fisherman with extensive knowledge of the terrain. An incredibly positive guide that will put you on fish. Bo knows, Bo understands, Bo sees. No more stressed out guides yelling at you because your cast wasn't absolutely perfect. He's great for the seasoned fisherman or those who have wanted to throw a fly in salt water but have not had the opportunity.

Went on a mission in Key West to catch a Tarpon on a fly rod. With Bo's help I succeded. Bo Sellers was a great guide and a very cool person to spend a few days with. He knows the waters and the fish very well. He is laid back, non judgmental and a patient teacher. I will return to fish with Bo again. I highly recommend him as a guide.
