Fishing Area Map

We fish from the Marquesas, (20 miles west of Key West), to the 7 Mile Bridge area. This gets us away from the crowds, where it’s just us and the Big fish in an epic adventure. View a map of the area.

Lodging & Rates

We have a variety of packages to suit your fishing needs, and can tailor your trip for the catch your looking for. We also recommend Sugar Loaf Lodgefor your lodging needs while in the area.

Specializing In

We’ve been fishing for (and catching) Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon using Flies and Artifical Lures since 1997 using our own boats that have been customized for the area and species of fish.

Welcome To Captain Mike Gorton Site

Dear Fellow Fishing Fanatic,

Feeling the itch to leave it all behind for a few days…let the rigors of daily life melt away on the bow of our custom built Beavertail Elite…whether you mettle with fly or spin there’s a memory out there waiting for you to cast to it!

Success on the flats is measured by the ability to visually locate fish, to quietly approach to within casting distance, to precisely place your cast, and to masterfully play the fish during its long runs over the flats. The stalking of these elusive fish is always an adrenaline rush, but the landing of your trophy fish is truly a memory of a lifetime.

I can help you make that memory.
