Homestead offered a great place for Capt. Brian Helms to hone his skills at targeting the many species that call South Florida home. He began guiding on his backcountry skiff in 2000 at the age of 18, and his passion has only deepened since. In addition to his flats and backcountry fishing trips Brian also began taking clients offshore and to the reef. In 2004, with increasing interest to fish in the Keys, Capt. Brian Helms moved to Islamorada, the Sport Fishing Capitol of the World. He has since made a name for himself in the fishing community winning numerous tournaments, most notably the 2013 Hawley tarpon tournament and the 2013 50th Anniversary of the Gold Cup tournament.
In 2011, with an ever growing list of happy clients, there was a need to add another captain to our crew. After years of fishing together, Capt. Robert Schemmel joined Capt. Brian in delivering quality fishing trips. Capt. Robert has been fishing South Florida and the Keys for most of his life and is experienced in offshore and inshore fishing trips.
Here at Sea Ya Fishing Charters we are known for creating memories for anglers young and old, experienced to novice. Some of our adventures include fly-fishing for shallow clear water bonefish, tarpon, and permit, taking a 10 yr old to the Everglades for his or her first fishing trip to experience lots of rod bending action, going offshore to fish the Reef for snapper and grouper or even further to try for sailfish, mahi, and tuna, and we also offer short local eco tours for anyone wishing to just be on the water and explore the rich cultural history that dates back to the 1800’s. We are your one stop shop for all things on the water around the Keys.
