Capt. Matt, Ana and Capt. Keith offer a top-notch fishing experience. Best backcountry fishing in Islamorada. These guys are the "true celebrities" of fishing! Angler House Marina couldn't be any more friendly. My wife and I did their half day fishing for 2 days and had a wonderful time. We are by no means experts in fishing, but Capt. Keith... More

I have 2 words to describe it, THE BEST. Capt. Matt was very nice and friendly and he was very experienced. It is well worth the price.

My wife, daughter (early 20's), and myself (3 rookies for tarpon fishing) booked a six hour fishing trip with Bamboo Charters, and boy did the time go quick! They supplied all you need including sodas and water, we did bring our own beer and sandwiches. We also brought a GoPro where we were able to get some great photos from... More

Booked an afternoon backcountry and evening tarpon in late March. Good catch of Sea Trout, Ladyfish and smaller Jacks, Evening Tarpon fishing was poor due to water being a little too cold. Capt Keith tried every trick he knew and worked but the bite wasn't on that evening. Overall pleasant day, good fishing on plastics. First time I fished artificial... More

My son (18) and I went out on a 1/2 day fun fishing trip in the Everglades. We requested a relaxing trip with good fishing. Captain Eric was awesome, took us right to the fish and got us set up with tackle and fishing technique. Eric as very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, we both had a great... More

My son and I decided to try our hand at fishing while in the Keys. We saw Bamboo Charters' ratings and decided to give Captain Matt a try. It was the perfect choice for us! We are VERY inexperienced fishermen. And the pressure was on. My son and I were responsible for catching some fish for that night's dinner! But... More

A friends son used to be a guide with this company. We drove up from Key West just to fish with them. Eric our guide was fantastic. Our family DOES NOT fish, so he was able to take us to places where we all caught something. When the kids had enough, he was able to take us around the area... More

Went on a four hour charter last night with Capt. Matt and our two boys, aged 7 and 10. It was AWESOME! Matt was incredibly kind and patient with both of our boys and took the time to explain things to them along the way. We caught so many fish I lost count. We finished our trip with a little... More

Another great spring break fishing trip with Capt. Matt out of Bamboo Charters... We were at the tail end of a good blow and he still got us on a great bite of Sea Trout, catching enough for dinner at Lazydaze that night, plus enough to freeze and take home for several more dinners. This was the first time we... More

It was more fun than we had anticipated. We did the Back Country trip, which ended up in the Everglades Bay. The greatest joy for me was watching my wife catching Spanish Mackerel and being totally thrilled. The 3 of us (my brother included)caught about 40 fish & kept 30, including 2 Sea Trout. Matt, the Captain was absolutely wonderful.... More
