Bamboo Charters

Capt. Matt Bellinger operates Bamboo Charters out of Holiday Isle Resort and Marina located at mile marker 84.5. You can sight fish the flats from my Phantom 16 or you can take the whole family into the Everglades for a relaxing day of rod bending .

Location Location Location
My location is in the heart of the sport fishing capital of the world . The near shore flats of this area are considered the best of the best for permit , tarpon and bonefish . And the flats , bights , basins and channels of the Everglades National Park are but a beatiful skiff ride away . Being docked at Holiday Isle affords our clients a place to stay , play and relax before and after a greaqt day on the water .
We offer beaches , bars and beds all in one great sunny location !

The Boats
Bamboo Charters offers two boats to get you out on the water and into the action . For those who wish to spend the day on the water challenged by their prey the Phantom 16 is for you . This boat floats in 6 inches of water and is wide and stable , great for two anglers and your guide . We can fly fish , cast plugs or bait fish from this super boat. Perfect for bonefish , permit , tarpon and reds this boat was laid out to fish easy all day long . If you are new to fishing and wanting to see what its all about or have a family or group of 4 anglers wanting to get out and just catch fish and alot of them then read on . My Ranger 2180 Bay boat is all you need , super stable , dry and comfortable with seating for up to 4 adults and your guide . This boat will take us into the heart of the Everglades Park and some fantastic catching . Trout , snook , reds , tarpon , snapper , jacks , ladyfish , sawfish and huge sharks are waiting .

The Tackle
Bamboo Charters uses the best rod and reel combos around . Reels by Diawa and rods custom built by Biscayne are all we use . If fly fishing is your thing I offer Sage rods and Abel or Billy Pate reels .

Your guide
My name is Capt. Matt Bellinger and I own and operate Bamboo Charters . I have lived here in paradise since 1989
and fished all my life . The water is where I am at my best , either in it or on it . I have always made my way thru life via the water , from being a life guard as a kid to teaching SCUBA as a PADI Master Instructor and owning a dive boat operation here in the Keys to guiding people into the Everglades National Park . It will sound corny to most but I realize that I’m being invited to spend the day on the water with you and your family on your vacation . So I will always work to ensure that you will end the day smiling .
