I'm Captain Steve and I have fished my entire life, but specialize in guided backcountry fishing excursions in the Florida Keys. First-timers, families, couples and seasoned anglers are all welcome aboard to experience the raw beauty that is Florida Bay, Biscayne Bay and Everglades National Park. Based in Islamorada, I specialize in fly and light tackle fishing excursions from the Upper Keys through the Marquesas in Key West.

This was our first backwater trip and it was amazing! Captain Steve exceeded our expectations and provided the highlight of our vacation. We caught more fish than we could count and laughed with Captain Steve the entire trip. His knowledge and patience with two novice fishermen made the trip very relaxing. When we travel back to Islamorada we will plan... More

Captain Steve was awesome as always and we enjoyed a beautiful Florida Keys day and my birthday together chasing tailing Permit and tarpon. Looking forward to fishing the March Merkin Permit Fly Tournament with Steve next month. If you get a chance to fish the Keys be sure to do it with Capt. Steve.

I don't normally write reviews, however my incredible experience with Captain Steve and Captain Eddie has encouraged me to make an exception to this rule, especially since I chose Afishingguide.com based on other people's reviews. Since on-line reviews were all I had to go on, I decided to take the chance, and I'm glad I did. Day one was with... More

Got some great casting lessons from Captain Steve. Landed our first salt water fish on the fly. Saw several baby tarpon but they just weren't eating.

Steve did a great job guiding us for 2 days! We had a blast listening to and telling stories and caught many fish! The permit and bonefish wouldn't cooperate, but catching a tarpon was the thrill of a lifetime! Steve will treat you well, put you on the fish, and make sure you have fun!

A buddy and I hired Steve based on recommendation of family member that lives in the area. We were not disappointed! Steve has a great, laid back personality. Entertaining without being obnoxious (like a few guides I've met). He obviously knows his stuff when you're talking about the area, the fishing, the wildlife,.... We had some tough fishing conditions with... More

Steve was a fantastic guide! It was a pleasure to be on his boat and fish with him. Caught a great tarpon on a fly rod.

We just finished an awesome two days of fishing with Capt Steve. I've fished with Steve four times over the past few years and always great fishing, always a great time. This trip we had 7 work colleagues, a reward for achieving sales goals, and Steve arranged everything and made sure everyone had fun. I've also fished with Steve and... More

I wish I could rate this higher than 5 stars. This was the first time fishing for our whole family-- mom, dad and 3 boys (ages 8, 10 and 12). We all had a fantastic time fishing with Captain Steve for 2 days while we were in Islamorada. I usually get motion sick but Captain Steve was great about making... More
