Florida Keys Fishing Charters with Capt. Scott Bannerot
Welcome to fishing the Florida Keys with Capt. Scott Bannerot aboard the completely refitted classic 20-foot Seacraft Ultimate Dream. Our emphasis is family fun. We tailor each trip to the clients we have on board, whether elite anglers or complete beginners, regardless of age, gender, or ethnic and cultural background.
We target snook, tarpon, redfish, seatrout, permit, bonefish, groupers, sharks, snappers, tripletails, jacks, mackerel, and a host of other species in the back country. Offshore trips focus on dolphin (mahimahi), sailfish, occasional blue and white marlin, swordfish, rarely longbill spearfish, blackfin tuna, amberjacks, and a variety of snappers, groupers, and tilefish.
At the reef edge and deep wrecks and ledges we catch yellowtail snappers, assorted groupers, mutton, lane, mangrove, vermilion and other snappers, sailfish, wahoo, king mackerel, cero mackerel, permit, African pompano, jack crevalle, rainbow runners, and a number of other species. Night trips primarily target tarpon and sharks.
Regardless of target species, we work hard to create a relaxed, educational, and thoroughly enjoyable experience, matched to our anglers. We’re equally comfortable with everything from high-intensity targeting of trophy marquee species, to heavy action trips designed to captivate our youngest anglers.

Florida Keys Tarpon
WHAT CHARTER CLIENTS SAY
I always book trips with Scott, great time, amazing personality, and puts you on fish. Couldn’t think of a better guide to go out with, tons of options for a wide variety of fish.
Scott has the ability to explain every aspect of the marine ecosystem throughout a day of fishing. While helping you catch your first ever tarpon! Thank You Scott!
I have been fishing with Scott for over 35 years. He has now fished four generations of my family. It’s hard to summarize in a brief blurb the truly amazing experiences we have shared on the water, both back country and offshore. We’ve had so many incredible days that people would not believe the variety and numbers of fish that we’ve caught and released on any given trip. This includes my first blue marlin, caught on a live school dolphin when it rushed up and attacked the ones we were catching behind the boat. Scott’s experience and breadth of knowledge of live bait availability, currents, and wind and water conditions cannot be matched. Even if catching was not epic on a given day, though often is, everyone has a wonderful experience.
