Backcountry & Flats Fishing Guides w/Rates


F.L.T.C. built its reputation by employing the Best Flats & Backcountry guides in the state.  Today, our staff has grown to fifty-five plus flats & backcountry guides.  There is not one veteran captain in the business, who has not heard of, or know of the caliber of individuals within our fleet.   Our family encompasses the Best Guides in the state, performing charters at "Usual & Customary" prices for each location.  Our guides are so confident in their ability to produce fish, that if they don't, your trip is free of charge!


"You may only fish our waters once this year. Your vacation is an important get-a-way for you and your family, and may be the highlight of your year.  You've spent countless hours planning and budgeting for this special event, to insure that you and your family enjoy every moment of your vacation.................the vacation of your lives.  I have hired the best Guides Florida has to offer, so you do not have to sell yourself short with a second-rate fishing guide.  Choose from the best....The Pro-Staff at Florida Light Tackle Charters....."
