Welcome to Captain Rich Smith's Miami Flats Fishing website.  If you are looking for a Flats Fishing Trip with a experienced and professional backcountry fishing guide you have come to the right place.  Capt. Rich was born and raised in the South Florida area and covers all the waters from Miami to Key West.  This includes Miami's Biscayne Bay, Everglades National Park, Flamingo, and all of the Florida Keys.


For those of you unfamliar with Flats Fishing lets just say it's night and day difference from Offshore / Deep Sea Fishing.  No one ever gets sick from being too rough.  That's because most of our Flats Fishing is done in water less than 4 feet deep.  Now I know some of you out there are thinking "How Big Of A Fish Can I Catch In Water That Shallow?"  Well take a look at this fish on the right.  This is a 150 LB. Tarpon caught by one of Capt. Rich's customers up on the flats.  Well convinced yet?
