We fish inshore and offshore. Inshore fishing consists of but not limited to fishing the bay (Deepwater and bay flats), coastal dune saltwater lakes, Inlets, saltwater creeks leading to bays while targeting redfish, trout and flounder and other seasonal species. We also provide backcountry fly fishing charters which is a blast and a lot of amazing wildlife and breathtaking views! Offshore we fish our private structure around 1 to 2 miles out in the open water Gulf of Mexico, targeting all sorts of species such as cobia, mackeral, sailfish, jacks, flounder, redfish, triggerfish, tuna etc. Our Offshore Kayaks have GPS fishfinders to navigate to the structures and hunt the fish. Offshore fishing is a little more strenuous than inshore and offshore also gets a little hairy if you are a inexperienced Kayak Angler. KFD recommends bay flats fishing for first timers and amateurs. We fish both shallow bay water and gulf depending on your experience and preference. It also depends on what the tides and weather prediction. . Let us know what day that you want to book and well get you locked in. We have multiple honey holes and fishing launch locations. When the trip is booked the guide will usually inform you of meeting location a couple of days before the trip to determine where the best place to fish in the duration of time that you booked according to weather, tides and so lunar predictions.

Bad Weather Policy - Unless you hear otherwise from us, your guide will be at the launch location at your reserved time. Each guide has access to up to the minute weather radar and watches the weather carefully. Should threatening weather (thunder, lightning, high waves, high winds) force us to cancel the trip (decision made by your guide), every attempt will be made to give you priority when rescheduling. If you cannot reschedule, your deposit is good for a 6 month period of time. After such time, the deposit is forfeited. Please allow up to 72 hours for refunds to be issued.
Florida's weather can be unpredictable, but it can also create some of the best fishing conditions. We will take it one adventure at a time. If the weather deteriorates during your charter, it can be a great time for a short break. Other times we may need to reschedule your trip. There are no fees and your next trip will receive top priority.
We will take it on a trip to trip basis, factoring in safety, comfort level and the specific conditions for that day.
When canceling a charter, 48 hours notice is greatly appreciated. When canceling within 24 hours of your scheduled charter or no-shows, the deposit amount will be forfeited.
