Fishing The Keys Capt Eric Scoble – 18ft Skiff

Capt. Eric Scoble Islamorada, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Captain Eric Scoble is born and raised five generations in Islamorada Florida. His fishing experience is unparalleled to none. He knows where the fish are and is very knowledgeable about the Florida Keys.

We specialize in light tackle and Fly fishing. We supply all fishing license and equipment. We will clean and bag your catch and give you suggestions on where to have a fresh cook and catch meal!

Captain Eric invites you aboard his Blackwater 18ft custom built flats boat designed specifically for fishing the shallow water of Florida Bay and Everglades National Park. There’s a poling platform to get us through the mangroves to where most boats can’t go. Two people fish comfortably aboard, and the vessel is accessible for wheelchairs. All safety equipment is certified by the U.S. Coast Guard.

There are a variety of fish species we target while inshore fishing; including Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Permit, Bonefish, Trout, and Mangrove Snapper. Techniques Captain Eric specializes in include light tackle, spinning, bottom fishing, fly fishing, and bow hunting.

All ages are welcome aboard; anglers of all skill level are welcome to fish with Captain Eric. With his experience of fishing these waters you’re sure to have a successful day reeling in some keepers. Most of what we bring to the boat will be catch-and-release, although sometimes we’ll be able to harvest your catch.

Experience the beauty of Florida’ wildlife in Florida Bay and the Everglades with Captain Eric on your next Islamorada fishing excursion. Trips for two are available for half day (4 hours) or full day (8 hours) and include everything you’ll need. This includes your fishing license, fly fishing equipment, rods and reels, bait and lures, and tackle. You will want to bring any food or drinks for the day, as well as sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, hat, and camera. If there’s any question about what to bring, don’t hesitate to ask!

If you’re looking for an offshore excursion, Captain Eric also has an offshore trip available. Whatever you’re looking for, Captain Eric can get it done. Book today!
