Hello My Name is Jim Loftus
I've basically been fishing my entire life. I started out as a freshwater fisherman fishing rivers and lakes and then when I moved to Florida I began fishing the saltwater flats, reefs and wrecks. After a successful career in the business world I began exploring the idea of becoming a charter captain/guide and started the process of obtaining my US Coast Guard License to pursue my true passion for fishing. I've been a licensed captain for the past 10 years and I am a full time guide in the lower Florida Keys where I reside. In addition to my USCG License, I am a guide member of the Lower Keys Guides Association – a guide member of the Florida Coastal Conservation Association, and an accredited captain of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary & Blue Star operator. I am also fully insured to operate as a for hire charter/guide service.
When you book a Trip with Mile Marker 27 Fishing Charters you'll have the option to fish the Atlantic Ocean side of the lower Florida Keys and the inshore / back country flats out to the Gulf of Mexico all is the same day.
My preferred style of fishing is the back-country shallows, flats and near shore reefs and wrecks of the lower Florida Keys from Big Pine Key to Key West. The species I typically target depending on time of year and season is Tarpon-Bonefish-Permit-Sharks and Snappers. I prefer to fish live bait when possible but I am not opposed to fly and other techniques such as dead baiting and artificial lures.
