Bull Redfish, gorgeous Snook, plentiful Trout, all wrapped in the stunning beauty of southern Florida – that describes the fishing that Skinny Waters Adventures brings to you!
Climb aboard their 16’ Shoalwater flats boat, which is perfectly suited to fishing these waters. Aboard you’ll be instructed and assisted by Captain Travis Rupe, a man with over 25,000 hours of fishing experience. You can bring your best fishing buddy on the trip with you, the boat can comfortably fit 2 anglers fishing at the same time.
Capt. Travis will take you after a wide range of gorgeous species that live in the local waters. You’ll stalk the shallows for Redfish, Snook, Speckled Trout, and others – helped by the onboard wireless trolling motor. If you’re a fan of fishing with live bait, you’ll be glad to hear that the onboard live bait well will keep it spry and appetizing long after it’s been caught. Battling beasts like Cobia is made a bit easier thanks to the fighting chair, though you’ll still get the chance to flex your fishing muscles!
If you’re working down your fishing bucket list, you can hook up massive Silver King. Capt. Travis knows that not all anglers (sadly!) have the chance for a full day on the water, so he offers a special 2-hour quick-n-easy fishing trip!
If you’re ready for some reel-screaming action in the bountiful waters of Placida, you’re ready for a trip with Skinny Waters Adventures!
