941 East 75th Street Ocean, Marathon, FL 33050

Diego Cordova

Capt. Diego guides you on your search for the illusive bonefish, permit, tarpon, or any other flats fish that you may encounter, and makes you feel as comfortable as if you were fishing with an old fishin’ buddy. He is very patient with children and novice anglers, as well as the experienced angler, and will fine tune your fishing technique on how to be an aggressive angler when the opportunity arises.

You will never be yelled at or feel intimidated by a bad cast on your part aboard his vessel. Capt. Diego knows how to make you feel at home, and feels a great amount of pride when his anglers make a connection with a prized flats fish such as the bonefish, permit or tarpon. He is willing to give lessons on spin or fly fishing at the request of the angler, and will spend as much time with you as needed.

There are other species that Captain Diego can introduce you to, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.  In the winter months, many species of fish travel these waters on their migratory trek southward around the southern coast of Florida, then northward along the beautiful Everglades National Park, and up the west coast of Florida.  We come across winter Cobia that travel the shallow flats in search of the same types of crustaceans that bonefish and permit feed upon.  In the edges of some channels you may encounter different species of Jacks, bluefish, trout, pompano, mackerel, and the usual sharks and barracudas that frequent these areas year round.  Some of these species will travel across the flats on high water and can be targeted just like bonefish with very effective hookups when the bait is presented near them.  Weather permitting, Captain Diego will also take anglers bottom fishing to some of his special spots for snapper and grouper and have you catch your own dinner.  He will fillet the fish for you to take to local restaurants to cook for you if you wish.  All this can be experienced without the worry of getting sea sick since it is all done in the beautiful calm, shallow, and pristine water of what we locals call “Our Back Country.

As Tailspin Charters grew, Capt. Mark realized he needed help to accommodate his growing list of happy anglers. With the reputation for great customer service, Florida Keys Fun Fishing was born.

The Islamorada Charter Fishing industry is very saturated with fishing guides, some full-time and some part-time. Some have the required licenses and insurance and some do not.  Some have a passion for fishing, and strive to provide a really fun day on the water.  Other guides just watch the clock and tell you how you should have been here “yesterday“.  Who would you rather fish with?

Operated by Capt Mark and his wife, Kara, Florida Keys Fun Fishing (FKFF) utilizes a group of local Islamorada fishing guides who believe in what we do:  provide great service, maintain the nicest boats, use the best equipment possible, have great attitudes and personalities, know how to catch fish, and most importantly, have current licenses and insurance required to work in the charter fishing industry. We also can provide recommendations on hotels, restaurants, and things to do with the family, not just in Islamorada but throughout the Florida Keys and Key West.

Capt. Mark is a member of the I.G.F.A, (International Game Fish Association,  C.C.A., (Coastal Conservation Association), and the Florida Keys Guide Association.

Montora

Hi, I’m Capt. Raul Montoro. I was born and raised in Miami , Florida , and being so close to this world-class fishing area means I spend lots of time fishing and diving from Miami to the Florida Keys . I was lucky to have a father who showed my brother and I the ropes when it came to safety, navigation, and of course fishing.

I grew up offshore fishing, and got a taste of shallow water fishing around the age of sixteen. You can say the rest is history. There’s nothing like watching the sun rising on the horizon, with you on your favorite flat, and suddenly you see a school of bonefish tailing forty feet from the bow of the boat. This gets my blood pumping. To me it’s one of the most exciting things, when you get that chance to make a perfect cast to a fish, watch him eat, and then hang on while he rips 200 yards of line off your reel in only seconds. It doesn’t get any better than that!

I’m a hard working fishing guide and I’ll do whatever it takes to put you on fish. With my laid back attitude I make it pleasant for anglers to enjoy their day on the water. So come enjoy the outdoors with me, Capt. Raul Montoro, and call Shallow Tails Charters now to book a trip of a lifetime.  http://www.biscaynebayfishing.com

Steve Leopold

“My Name is Captain Steven Leopold and I would like to welcome you aboard the Yabba Dabba Doo.
I have been a full-time charterboat Captain here in the Florida Keys for the past 21 years. Being a South Florida native, I have been fishing ever since I could hold a fishing rod. As a charterboat Captain, I enjoy the great fishing experiences and have the pleasure of spending my days with people from around the world who have fun fishing aboard the Yabba Dabba Doo. I remember back as a kid walking down “charter boat row” and thinking how much fun this could be! And here I am enjoying watching and teaching anglers of all ages the thrills of fishing in the Beautiful Florida Keys.
