3/4 Day Charters

When a “1/2 Day” just isn’t long enough! Perfect for hunting around the flats with a little more leisure.

Full Day

Recommended for “Tarpon Season”, (March – June). Full day trips are designed to maximize the fishing experience in the Florida Keys.

Come fish the Florida Keys with Captain Justin!

Captain Justin was born in Carmel, NY and introduced to Bass and Trout fishing at the age of 4. After moving to Marco Island at the age of 13, snook, tarpon and redfish became the fish of choice.

Captain Justin is a firm believer that inshore fishing is more similar to “a hunt” than anything else. The Florida Keys ecosystem is as visually stunning as it is alive!

Capt. Justin Bachert is the man. He works his butt off on the square end, so you stay tight on the pointy end. He has an eagle’s eye from that platform, and knows what the fish want. Make sure you have your game on point, because Justin is on top of his! HE WILL PUT YOU ON THE FISH!!! Bryce Etter
