Dr. Salty Fishing Charters

Capt. Joe Snyder Islamorada, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Fishing in Islamorada is something anglers from all over the world dream about.  We are known as the “Sport Fishing Capital of the World” – for good reason.  Almost any fish that swims in the Atlantic Ocean can be caught off our shores. Dr. Salty Fishing Charters is here to deliver you the best fishing charter in Islamorada!

Captain Joe Snyder will be behind the helm over the course of your Florida Keys fishing charter. Capt. Joe will customize each trip based off the season and our expert fishing charts to put you right on the fish! Capt. Joe took his passion for fishing and created Dr. Salty Fishing Charters to give enthusiastic anglers a thrilling fishing experience like no other.

Your fishing charter trip with Capt. Joe will begin in Islamorada and go on to cover the fishing grounds of Lower Matacumbe Key, Plantation Key, Tavernier, Key Largo, Layton, and many other wonderful locations in the greater Florida Keys area.

Capt. Joe has a lovely 34ft sport fisherman that is perfect for deep sea fishing in Islamorada. Your fishing charter adventure will take place on this comfortable boat that can carry up to 6 passengers. She is powered by a pair of 305hp Cummins engines and features a fighting chair for battling those giant trophy catches. A flybridge us used for spotting fish and a first mate will be on deck to help you with anything you may need. She has an air-conditioned interior with plenty of room to sit and get away from the sun in between catches.

We offer 2, 4, 6 and 8-hour trips that provide you with tackle, rods and reels, bait, and a fishing license. Our crew will clean all your catches at the end of the trip for you to cook later. We practice several different fishing techniques including bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, light tackle fishing, spinning, and trolling

We have a prime opportunity to reel in fish year-round as the temperatures stay relatively the same for most of the year, even in the known winter months when things do cool off. You can expect to see a King Mackerel, Grouper, Swordfish, Snapper, Wahoo, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Tuna, Shark, and many other species on your hook as you are fighting to reel it in.

Dr. Salty Fishing Charter has built up a reputation in the area and continues to add to that legacy. So, if you’re coming for a fishing vacation in Islamorada or just a casual trip out, make sure you put Dr. Salty Fishing Charters on your list of places to visit.
