Back for More Fishing Charters


Welcome to Back for More

Welcome, My name is Capt. Gavet Tuttle and I’m going to give you all the information you need to have a successful fishing charter in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale area. It’s important to note that I am a life long native to the South Florida area. I started fishing here when I was 5 years old. My older brothers had me sneaking on golf courses, catching 50 plus bass a day in stocked ponds by the time I was six.

Fortunately, I was never taken out by an errand tee shot. But, this is where the passion was ignited at an early age. By the time I was 8, my older brothers had me spending my entire summer at local piers. That is when saltwater fishing was introduced to me. Compared to bass fishing, I was amazed at the strength, size, and variety of saltwater fish. I’ve seen many changes since my childhood, but one thing has not. I’m just as passionate about the sport today, as I was thirty years ago.

If you are seriously committed to finding the right guide, and having a successful fishing charter, please take the time and read through the whole website.


There are very few guides in South Florida that are full time. I am one of them, this is my only source of income, and this is how I feed my wife and two kids. I take my trips very seriously, and I do absolutely everything I can to make sure that not only do you come back, but you send other family and friends out with me. I can’t tell you how many calls I’ve received from people in a panic because the fishing trip they’ve been planning for three months just got cancelled. When guides have other occupations that really pay their bills, they are much more likely to cancel. If you book a trip with me, we’re going fishing. The only thing I cancel for is lightening, other than that I’m confident I can catch fish in just about any condition mother nature throws at us. If we are targeting a particular fish, and I know conditions are very unfavorable, I always do whatever I can to reschedule during your visit. Again, my goal is that you have a great time and become a return client. I’ve been guiding full time for seven years and almost 75% of my clients have fished with me more than once. Considering most of them don’t live here, it’s really something to be proud of.


Miami and Fort Lauderdale have some of the best light tackle fishing in the world. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the geographical difference I’ll try to put it in perspective. From Miami’s south beach there is an inlet called Government Cut. 10 miles to the north is Bakers Haulover cut, and 10 miles to the north of that is Port Everglades Fort Lauderdale. I predominantly launch from the Haulover area which is in the middle. From just about anywhere in Fort Lauderdale the furthest you could be is about 30 miles, and the closest you could be is about 7 miles. There are several reasons why I fish out of this area, but I’ll just give a couple. The main reason is “Bait”. Fort Lauderdale is part of Broward county, and Haulover is in Dade county. You are not allowed to use more than a 7 foot net to catch bait in Broward, but you can use up to 14 foot net in Dade. Also live bait is much tougher to find in Fort Lauderdale due to lack of natural habitat. Most everything is man made canal systems, and once you go south towards Haulover the bay opens up. This is where you start to see the first grass flats of Biscayne bay, and the grass is what supports our whole inshore fishery. The grass gives shelter to millions of shrimp and crabs that feed all of our inshore game fish. It also harbors millions of small bait fish like pilchards and herring.
