IGUANA HUNT

4-hour Iguana hunting from boat, launching out of various locations in Miami-Dade.  Day-time hunts only.  Help put a dent in the invasive population.   Methods include bowfishing or blowgun depending on the location for legality.  We've had many people ask us if we use air rifles on our charters.  It is ILLEGAL to discharge air rifles in public space (treated the same as firearms) in Miami-Dade county.  Every county, city, town has their own weapons restrictions.  Most do not allow air rifles.  We do not use air rifles on our charters.  It is also illegal to use bows and arrows in most of Miami-Dade county as well.  In prohibited areas, we use blowguns.  All iguanas harvested are removed by us and properly disposed of. 

 

Why blowguns over air rifles?  Besides the legality issue, our blowguns are the MOST effective in retrieving your harvest.   Our custom blowguns, built specifically for iguana hunting, have professionally attached fishing line and reels.  Like hook and line used for fishing, this increases your chances at retrieving your harvest tremendously and avoids injured iguanas running away and dying in someone's yard left to rot.  This also avoids the chances of accidental discharge and damage to someone's property when a customer misses.  We try our best to respect our waterways and the people that live nearby. 

 

Beware of startup iguana hunting guides(look for reviews), popping up every day, not licensed or insured, that have no way to retrieve your harvest or any intentions of properly disposing of them.  They have no respect for our local waterways and their bordering neighborhoods. 

 

**Note: Please do not call the police or report us for doing our job.  We are in public state waters and know our rights. We can press charges against you for  “Harassment of hunters, trappers and fishers." Florida Statute 372.705**  

 

Lobster Bullynetting

Seasonal. Launching out of Homestead Bayfront Park Marina to the outer flats of the Biscayne National Park in search of the Spiny Lobster. Dates limited. Availability for 2021: August 6-Aug 18.
 

This is a 4-hour night charter bullynetting for spiny lobster during the 2-day mini season and the 1st week of the regular lobster season.  We travel outside the Lobster Marine Sanctuary to undisclosed locations that yield good numbers of lobsters. 
 

We use specialized bully nets to drop on top of the lobsters at night under lights and use a technique to quickly get the lobster to swim into our net so we can bring them aboard.  We check to ensure the lobsters are of legal size and keep up to the limit of 6 lobsters per person.
