Capt Luke Kelly - Raised in the lower Florida Keys, I have spent my entire life appreciating the inshore flats, reef, and open ocean that surround the Florida Keys. I am not a seasonal fishing guide, unless on vacation I’m here fishing year round. The Florida Keys are and always have been home to me. This is where I founded my ‘year round’ charter fishing service, this is where I intend to keep it for years to come.

The surreal views we take-in while fishing the inshore Florida Keys backcountry is what has ultimately kept me going back to the flats. Enjoying the memories and good times spent with anglers alike is where I find fun in what I do for a living.

I developed this website with my passion for this flats fishing resource in-mind. I can only hope it’s a slight measure to those who found it.


As for the service I provide my customers/clients; I guarantee everyday is treated as a new, time is never waisted, while everything within a possible realm is accomplished in-order to provide a memorable Florida Keys flats fishing experience. My main goal is to see new customers become return clients and friends. I work as hard as I fish when on charter!

  1. -Charters are run from a 16 ft Dolphin Superskiff. A flats fishing industry standard, this skinny water flats-boat poles quietly and gets where the fish live with a smooth ride.

  1. -Room for a max of 2 anglers and guide!

  1. -Your choice of fly fishing, or light-tackle spin fishing. I do not recommend combining both as the two are approached differently, requiring time and patience. Either style fishing rod is included, personal rods are welcome.

  1. -Charter provisions include a cooler with ice & water

  2. -Florida recreational fishing licenses for customers

  3. -Quality rods & reels, tackle, saltwater flies or bait

  4. -Patient instructional methods where needed

  5. -All necessary safety gear and kit
