Islamorada Family Fishing
Here in Islamorada, The Sport fishing Capital of the World, there is no better way to spend the day with your family, then fishing in the Backcountry. Right outside Islamorada’s backdoor, lies approx. 900 sq. miles of the Everglades National Park. The ENP offers a wide variety of fishing as well as wildlife watching. The average water depth is only 3 ft. deep making this a very safe fishing adventure for kids of all ages with no worries of getting seasick.
Florida Keys Fun Fishing has three brand new bay boats, as well as two technical poling skiffs that are able to accommodate a family of four comfortably, making our catch fish trips a delight to the whole family. Did you ever think Mom would catch a shark? Better yet, take a family photo with the kids holding the shark? These are the memories that are talked about for lifetime. With someone other than Mom to entertain the kids, everyone gets to fish and enjoy the day.
As most of our Captains are proud new fathers, we all have the patience to teach novice of kids how to cast, fight, and catch their very own trophy. All while educating the kids on the Everglades and the effects Mother Nature has on our precious environment.
Do Mom and Dad need a break? You can always send the kids for a ½ day or so and enjoy some alone time.
Many visitors are unsure what to fish for and what level angler they really are. Others just want to have to catch something and lots of them. With this in mind we leave out the “high profile” fish and instead we catch Seatrout, Snappers, Jacks, Ladyfish, Catfish, etc and of course everyone’s favorite, SHARKS!
On light tackle these fish can provide constant rod bending, drag pulling, action while enhancing your angling skill, moving you one step closer to catching the tricky Bonefish. These trips are a big hit and families who want to catch fish can’t wait to go.
Backcountry fishing eliminates the seasickness factor found in offshore and deep sea fishing. Although we have no bathrooms on the boats, we are rarely more than 15 minutes away from facilities. This trip ensures the ultimate family quality time. With no computers or video games allowed, nature alone occupies your time together.
Florida Keys Fun Fishing and Capt. Mark Johnson, are big believers in Islamorada Family Fishing, as well as just having plain old FUN in the Florida Keys. Why else would you be here?? Family Fishing in the Florida Keys has been a big part of our charter fishing business for a long time and has been becoming even more popular in the last few years.
Kids of all ages can benefit from a positive fishing experience and a chance to be outdoors in the beautiful Florida Keys Backcountry. A four hour fishing trip can let one see nature at its best, learn about our fragile environment, and even get a picture or two of your very own prized catch!! During the summer months, we can even throw on a mask and snorkel and let the kids see the under water sea world up close and personal.
