Meet Captain Justin Bachert
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.
Growing up in turn with multiple successful Southwest Florida fishing guides. Both spin-fishing & fly-fishing were introduced early and are still equally enjoyed.
Captain Justin is a Florida Atlantic University Graduate, US Navy Veteran & Full-Time, Year-round guide in the Florida Keys.
Style of Fishing
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!
At Hot Water Fishing, we are well equipped to either fly-fish or spinfish, live-bait or artificial. I am also a HUGE conservationist and practice “catch and release” philosophy 99.9% of the time.
There’s always the possibility that we could stuff a Grouper or Snapper in the box for dinner!
