Beavertail Skiffs Guides

Some of the very finest shallow water and backcountry fishing guides on the planet are part of the Beavertail Family and we invite you to get to know them and hear their stories. We rely on the feedback from these fishing professionals (and you) to constantly evolve our lineup of shallow water fishing boats, and to ensure that our skiffs and flats boats are the very best on the water!

Book a day on the water with one of these guys and you'll get to experience first-hand, why "Beavertail Skiffs Life is Good"!

Pine Island, FL

I picked up my new Beavertail BT3 back in November 2011 and have run hundreds of charters on it so far. Since then I’ve noticed something really interesting.

Sugarloaf Shores, FL

What I strive for as a guide is to reduce the hunt for trophy fish to its simplest form. The primary tool in my craft is a shallow drafting skiff and push-pole. What I seek in a perfect skiff is pure elegant simplicity.

We are a husband and wife team based out of Venice, La.  We were both raised in south la. fishing and enjoying the outdoors our whole life.  Where Capt. Eric grew up fishing along the gulf coast of La., Capt. Moe grew up fishing along the gulf coast of Miss. Capt.

Long time Guide here in Key West, my knowledge of the 'skinny' waters here in the backcountry of Key West is unequalled.

Capt. Mike Bartlett
Key West, FL

I took delivery of the first Beavertail BT3 in March of 2011, this might be the best decision I have made in my ten plus years of guiding in Key West.

Capt. Lucas Bissett
Baton Rouge, LA

All I can say is that the BT3 is by far the best poling skiff I have ever stepped foot in. The extremely wide deck leaves so much room for my clients to move around and fish in and the stability of the boat is unrivaled.

Capt. Jason Dail
Wilmington, NC

As a charter captain looking to capitalize and fill a void in the fishing industry in NC, I sought out boat manufacturer’s that could make a skiff stealth and light enough to fish our shallow water bays, yet large and dry enough to handle long runs through rough water.

Little Torch Key, FL

I operate Torch Key Charters out of Little Torch Key, FL. I specialize in sight fishing for tarpon, permit and bone fish in the Lower Florida Keys on both fly and spin tackle.

Tampa, FL

I can pinpoint the exact moment when my passion for fishing was sparked. I remember it like it was yesterday, even though I was a mere four years old when my Papa taught me how to catch mud minnows out of a ditch on the side of road, in Beaufort, S.C.. From that moment forward, I was hooked.

Point Pleasant, NJ

Capt. Tony Miller of Reel Drag Fishing Charters, LLC from Point Pleasant, NJ. I fish the back waters of Barnegat Bay New Jersey extensively and have found there is a flats system in Barnegat bay. This area is untouched because of the shallow water conditions.

Bokelia, FL

It Works! I was sold on Beavertail from the first time I fished on Capt. Gregg Mckee`s Beavertail. Of course I did my due diligence in regards to all comparable skiffs, as I`m sure you will, but I picked up my Beavertail Vengeance in March of 2015.

Charleston, SC

I grew up in Charleston and on the Isle of Palms SC. Fishing has been in my life for almost as long as I can remember. It started with fishing cut bait and live mud minnows off of a dock that I used to ride my bike to.

Port Orange, FL

I have been chartering over 13 years full time now in the Daytona beach area and New Smyrna Beach areas like our world famous mosquito lagoon.
