Are you looking for the best Islamorada fishing charters? If so, then All Aboard! Captain Jack welcomes you to Shake N Bait Charters. We are a Fishing Charter headquartered in Islamorada, Florida. Ready for an amazing fishing experience and memories which last a life-time? Whether you’re an expert fisherman or novice, you will absolutely love your trip. Not quite convinced yet? Check out these top reasons why booking a fishing charter, Shake N Bait Charters in particular, offers the ultimate fishing experience:

Islamorada Fishing Charters | All Equipment is Provided:

Shake N Bait Charters will provide you with all the gear and equipment you’ll need for a day out fishing. This means rods, reels, tackle, bait and other equipment, not to mention a fishing boat. This gives you an opportunity to try out some high-quality gear used by actual professionals before you decide to go out and purchase some of it for yourself.

Islamorada Charter Boats | Bond With Friends or Family:

A day spent fishing with a charter guide can also make for a great bonding excursion with friends or family members who may or may not have much experience fishing themselves. Guides are professionally trained to work with beginners and will not be frustrated by questions or mistakes. This ensures that you all can have a positive day out on the water, regardless of the skill disparity that may exist between you as fishers.

Fishing Charters in Islamorada | Learn the Area:

Even if you consider yourself a skilled fisherman, there’s always more to learn about new areas. If you’ve never fished a particular section of the ocean before, there are lots of things a local expert can teach you about those waters. This will make you a better overall fisherman, as you’ll be learning new techniques, new water and land formations, and new fish behaviors.

Islamorada Fishing Charters | Less pressure:

When you’re out with a guide, you don’t have to worry about handling everything yourself. You’ve got someone to help you with the rigging and bait, and have another person to hold the net while you reel in your catch. This takes a lot of the potential stress out of the day to allow you the most enjoyment.

Offshore and Deep Sea Saltwater Fishing in Islamorada

Meet Captain ‘Jack’ Falcucci, who captained all over the world before deciding to buy his own boat and settle down in Islamorada.

The year-round warm climate, calm seas, and abundance of fish, combined with Islamorada’s stable economy and friendly, welcoming people, made it an easy choice. For anglers and adventurers, the general atmosphere of resource conservation and the safety of the country enhance its appeal as a destination.

Offshore Deep Sea Fishing

You’ll find no shortage of choices for fishing in Islamorada. Many operators put up a shingle to make a living, but a majority are doing just that, and often, like so many things, you don’t get what you paid for. Not so here.


You won’t get false advertisement, sub-par tackle, or inadequate safety equipment, and you will fish on the actual boat you see in the photos. A perfectionist, Capt. Falcucci keeps the Shake N Bait in immaculate condition, maintained to US standards, and places top priority on safety and quality while running a tight ship with his seasoned crew. As Captain, his steady demeanor and professionalism may initially obscure his sense of humor, but fun is an important part of a charter experience, and there’ll be no shortage of that!

Captain Jack and The Shake N Bait were awesome! It was our first time sea fishing and we had a blast. We limited out on Spade fish and Mackeral too. There was 6 of us and we always had the poles with bait in the water.
