Methods:  Light Tackle Spin & Plug Tackle and Fly-fishing.  Artificial Lures & Live Bait.

Tournament Charters:  Available for anywhere in coverage area.   Click HERE for more information.

Sight Seeing & Nature Tours:  Available for personalized sightseeing & nature tours. 

Maximum Anglers:  Three. 


Boat:  2007 21 Action Craft, powered by a Yamaha 225 H.P. V-Max Outboard.  At a top speed of over 70mph, the boat is plenty fast enough to get you to the hot spots before anyone else, yet at the same time, she is extremely stable, dry and can comfortably fish up to three anglers. 


The Hewes floats in less then a foot of water, which is a necessity when targeting Snook, Redfish and Trout in our shallow waters, and she will comfortably cross open water in a stiff chop, whereas most smaller Flats boats will pound you to death while soaking you with saltwater spray.


The Hewes is manufactured by The Maverick Boat Company, the true pioneer of the flats boat industry.  She is equipped with the very best and latest in equipment, to include a Fish Finder, Global Positioning System, Computerized Chart/Map Plotter, VHF Radio, Cellular Telephone and an AM/FM CD Stereo.  The boat is also equipped with a Minn Kota Riptide Electric Motor for creeping up on schools of Tarpon and a Power-Poles to hold the boat in position while, anglers make cast to tailing Redfish and/or frenzied Snook.


Charter includes:  Rod, reels, fly gear, live, dead & artificial bait, tackle, fishing licenses, sodas & water, ice, fish cleaning & bagging and no fish no pay guarantee.  Our professional and friendly attitude is free of charge.


Capt. Jarrett is a tournament proven guide with a remarkable track record of finding fish when no one else can.  He has been featured in several publications and is a current member of the C.C.A., I.G.F.A., The Professional Redfish Tour and is a featured Guide on several T.V. Shows to include "Fins & Skins" "Fishing the Flats".
