Capt. Matt Bellinger is a U.S.C.G. licensed captain, PADI Master SCUBA Diver Trainer emeritus and will soon finish classes to attain his Master Naturalist certificate from the University of Florida. Capt. Matt’s passion for the Florida Key’s marine environment is deep seated in his soul. This can be seen on any charter that he runs on any given day. Capt. Matt will tell you “There is so much more to a fishing charter than just catching fish, there is so much that makes the trip memorable. It begins with introducing to and educating my anglers about this very special and fragile ecosystem and ends with catching memories that are disguised as fish! The Florida Keys is home to the greatest fishing Captains and Guides in the world, I feel it’s my approach to the whole environment and relating this to my guests that make me stand out amongst my peers.” Come to the Florida Keys as a visitor and you will leave as a friend!
Bamboo Charters uses VMC hooks, Gamakatsu hooks and Hank Brown Hook Up jigs and bucktails.
Family fishing has to be one of our favorites that we offer. Fun fishing is just as it sounds, we put away the hard core mindset and go catching! The important thing on this trip is bent rods and smiling faces!
Shark Fishing We always think of ourselves as the top of the food chain, not true when you are fishing for these toothy monsters here in the Florida Keys.
Tarpon Fishing Tarpon fishing in the Keys is a knock down slugfest with a fish that can go over 200 pounds and 9 feet in lenght, nuff said!
