Thanks very much for guiding us on Sat. That was a great trip and the dinner that night at Lazy Days was amazing. Mark is going to send some pics to you I think. Take care and I hope to fish with you again in the future.

Hi Juan, I put together a little video of our trip. Michelle and I had a great time.. Thanks again, Mark


Just wanted to say thanks again for the great fishing. The Mutton Snapper was awesome on the grill. Can't wait to show everyone my shark pictures. May you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. And may there be many more fish to catch with you.


Just emailing you again to thank you for a great time. As you requested, the above email address works for sending the pictures you took
Thanks again!

Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks for the good times on the water.  You guys always make it fun and can't wait to get back out there.  We are already talking about possibly coming down for Thanksgiving break this year. Will keep you posted on that.  Thanks again!!!

Juan, Just wanted to say THANKS again for the arranging and guiding us to 3 wonderful days of fishing with you, Capt. Jeff Pfister, and Capt. Rich Burson in early April. This was year 5 of fishing in the Islamorada area and we cuaght more, and more species of fish this year than any other year. Y"'all were great. Hope to make it back and do it again!

"I have been fishing with Captain Juan Garcia over and over again since I
met him 7 years ago. Whether I am taking my wife and young son for a fun day
of reef fishing, or going hard core at night fishing for Tarpon, Captain
Juan is the only one I would charter. I have found Captain Juan not only to
be extremely knowledgeable, but to be able to adapt and offer many styles
and types of fishing and most important be successful at catching fish
consistently. I must say I am a very pleased customer... my tired arms from
reeling fish are proof of Captain Juan's expertise and excellence."

“Amazing Time”
 Reviewed 10 June 2012

We took a trip with Captain Juan a few months back for a backcountry half-day fishing trip in islamorada on a weekend excursion to the keys. He was recommended by a friend of ours who went recently. We arrived at the dock at about 7:30, the boat was ready to go, and after an introduction we were on our way. the fishing was amazing - once we got to the first spot it only took a few minutes before we were starting to feel bites and brining in the jacks. Capt Juan was very professional, seemed to have a great command of the local fishing spots, and was very patient in teaching our friends who do not fish often how to handle the rod and bring one in. we look forward to going fishing with him again and would recommend him to anyone who wants a great fishing experience in the keys

Great time of the year to be fishing in the Florida Keys Backcountry! The boat traffic in the Everglades National Park its minimal therefor putting less pressure on the fish. There are many species to be targeted both in the shallow areas of the park as well as in gulf water. So if you are a begginer angler or have a lifetime of experience in the water there is a great fishing adventure waiting for you in the Florida Keys backcountry.

Great time of the year to be fishing in the Florida Keys backcountry. This is a transition period when we go in to our winter fishery. With every passing cold front and drop in water temperatures more of the migrating fish will make it to our area. Spanish Mackrel, Cobia and many more will be available providing great action for any type of angler. Take advantage of the great bite going on right now and book your next Florida Keys backcountry fishing or reef fishing charter.

It's summer time here in the Florida Keys backcountry fishing report. The fishing pressure on the Everglades National Park and surrounding waters is minimal making for some great fishing. Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Snappers, Groupers, Barracudas and many more are all available. We recommend half day charters living the dock early and coming back before noon therefore beating the heat. We can guarantee you will catch plenty of fish and have plenty more for dinner or to bring home. Give us a call so we can make your next Florida Keys backcountry fishing adventure one to remember.
