Captain Alex Zapata – IGFA Record Holder
My name is Alex Zapata, a USCG licensed and insured Captain. I guide fisherman on the beautiful flats of Biscayne Bay, the Everglades and the Florida Keys. I have been fishing the waters of South Florida and the Keys for over 15 years. My goal is to show you a great time on the water. I’m a laid back and patient guide who will work very hard to make your day on the water a success.
Come fish with me and experience the beauty and great fishing that South Florida has to offer.
The maverick HPX-V 18, equipped with a Yamaha 115 four stroke, is the ultimate Oceanside fly/bait tarpon boat. Extremely stable, spacious yet light and versatile. I can make long and fast runs into the backcountry while keeping my clients dry and comfortable. The 18 HPX-V is dead quiet, nimble on the push pole and floats in 8″ of water. It is an awesome fishing machine for tarpon, permit, bonefish and backcountry fishing.
The maverick HPX-T 17, equipped with a Yamaha 70 two stroke is my boat of choice for sightfishing in the shallow waters of the Everglades.This boat is extremely light and nimble on the pole, yet very stable and spacious. It floats in 5 inches of water and runs in a mud puddle. there is not a redfish or snook that’s too shallow for this boat. It is also outfitted with oversized/custom made spray rails to keep my clients dry and comfortable during those long runs.
I only fish high quality fishing tackle. My fly rods are made by Winston and Hardy. Fly reels are Tibor and Abel reels. My spinning gear is made by TFO, Penn and Shimano. I also custom tie my own flies.
