About your Captain

Captain Steve Murray has been fishing and guiding the backcountry in the Florida Keys since 1997. He has over 40 years fishing experience. Steve was raised in the Chicago area and as a youngster fished throughout the western suburbs and spent most summers fishing the Northwoods in Wisconsin at his grandparents' in Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin. He became an expert fisherman on inland lakes and rivers and guided his friends to some of their first big fish. Captain Steve also became an expert fly fisherman for salmon, trout and steelhead on the tributaries of Lake Michigan. Throughout his life he has fished from Alaska, the Northwest Territories and Canada, to the Florida Keys. Fishing has always been his number one passion.

In the early 1980's he discovered the South Florida Fishery. Realizing the opportunity to fish this area "year round" and the fantastic fishing, he researched the many areas in South Florida. The fishing in the Florida Keys was unmatched for variety and superior water quality. The opportunity to start a guiding business in the Keys was a dream come true. In 1998 he started "Florida Fishing Headquarters" in Islamorada --the Fishing Capital of the World..

Captain Steve Murray is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Captain and Everglades National Park approved Guide. He is always accommodating with any level angler and takes great pride with the ability to adapt to the customers' wishes, making everyone's fishing experience a memory of a lifetime. Whether you want to pole all day for bonefish and permit, fish the evenings for tarpon, or cruise back into the everglades for redfish, snook, trout, snapper, shark, etc. etc., Captain Steve "can do it all". He will probably have as much fun as you do on your fishing trip. From expert to novice, all ages are welcome. You will come away with greater fishing knowledge and discover why Captain Steve now resides in the beautiful Florida Keys.
