SW Florida Fishing Charter




Action Flats Backcountry Charters is a premier guide service, using only the best in everything from the boat & motor, rods, reels to lures, flies and even using only the best in hooks. 



“THE” BOAT- An 18 ˝ foot Maverick Master Angler flats boat.  This is the elite of all flats boats and the flagship of the Hewes/Maverick line of boats.  A Maverick owner will tell you that he does not own a flats boat- he owns a Maverick!  This is the best riding, quickest and most efficient design in all flats boats.  It poles in extremely shallow water yet handles choppy water with a soft, dry ride.  Equipped with a custom poling platform this boat can do it all.  This boat is wide and stable with nearly as much deck space as 20 foot boats and comfortably fishes 3 anglers.


Power-  Yamaha Saltwater Series 150 H.P. Outboard with stainless steel prop.  This engine has a quick hole-shot for getting out of shallow water and good top end speed.


Jackplate-  CMC Electric jackplate allows engine to be raised off the transom so we can run into areas other boats only wish they could!


Trolling Motor-   Minn Kota saltwater with 74 pounds of thrust!  Quiet and fast to chase down fast moving Tarpon or schooling Reds pushing on a shallow flat.  A Top Sponsor!  


Anchor System-  PowerPole shallow water automatic anchor quietly “puts brakes on a boat” and will stop us on a dime when we spot fish.  Only a lucky few anglers have this ability.  A Top Sponsor!  


Electronics-  Lowrance X-85 fish/depth finders forward & aft, Magellan GPS,  marine VHF and cell phone.


Push Pole-  Biscayne Bay graphite, 20 feet.  Makes easy work of pushing 2 anglers over flats in pursuit of reds, jacks, shark, trout and many other hard fighting fish.


Fishing Rods-  Exclusively St. Croix .  Top-of-the-line Tidemaster, Legends and Legend Ultras.  Spinning and fly rods.  A Top Sponsor!  


Fishing Reels-  Daiwa and Shimano Spinning Reels selected to perfectly match and balance our rods.  



Fly Reels-  STH, Tibor and Tioga.


Fishing Lines-  Andes , Power Pro and Seaguar.


Fishing Hooks-  Owner and Gamakatsu.


Lures-Yozuri, Mirror Lure, Johnson Silver Minnows, Bass Assassin, Zoom, you name it- its on my boat!


Flies-  I wish I had time to tie but I don’t.  Hand tied, many by several famous fly fisherman including Bob Clouser, Joe Bruce and Lefty Kreh.
