Fish the Florida Keys inshore flats or backcountry aboard the Stray Cat Charters 18’ Maverick. Or we can fish the reefs, wrecks, and offshore waters aboard the 24’ 243cc Everglades.

Please let me know if you have a larger group as I can usually get another captain/charter and we’ll have two boats go out. This is great for friendly tournament type day and everyone has lots of fun!
