Let’s Go Fishing!
It’s safe to bring your kids backwater fishing thanks to the calm, shallow inshore waters. There’s a big variety of fish that attracts amateur and experienced anglers to these spots. Most of the time the water is calm, so light bait is used.
What Type of Fish Can We Catch?
You can target trout, redfish, tarpon, flounder, and other backwater species without having to worry about getting the bait and fishing gear. We like to personalize our services to your needs, giving you the option to go fishing for half a day or a full day, whatever works best for you.
