Capt. Tim Carlile offers flats fishing charters for up to two anglers departing from the Sugarloaf Marina. Half day, 3/4 day and full day charters are offered. December and January can be action packed fishing months in the Lower Keys. On warmer days we may see bonefish, permit and even tarpon. On the cooler days the barracuda, sharks, jacks, ladyfish and seatrout are going to offer the most action. Snapper fishing can be excellent in the winter because the fish move into shallow water that is in close proximity to the flats.

CAPTAIN RON WARD is a full-time fishing guide, chartering the backcountry and flats of the LOWER FLORIDA KEYS since 1980. Being a year-round guide, he focuses on different types of charters depending upon the season.

During the winter months {Nov. thru Feb.) Capt. Ron specializes in light-tackle backcountry fishing, catering to those looking for a fun day on the water and bringing home a nice seafood dinner. During the spring and early summer almost everyone is interested in the three great gamefish: TARPON, PERMIT and BONEFISH. All three can be found seasonally in the shallow waters of the KEYS and be pursued by novice and/or expert anglers using either spinning or flyfishing tackle. During the July mini-season and August 6 thru September Ron takes lobster catching charters for snorkelers in the backcountry.
