Leatherneck Backcountry Fishing

Leatherneck Backcountry Fishing Charters with Captain Ben Trainer a Veteran owned business






Fish The Florida Keys

Islamorada may be the only place on Earth where it is possible to catch a sailfish offshore and pursue bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook and redfish in just inches of water in the backcountry, all in the same day. Neighbouring Key Largo is home to tropical hardwoods, winding creeks (filled with gamefish), two state parks, Everglades National Park and a portion of a national marine sanctuary. It boasts some of the most fascinating botanical scenery in the state, not to mention the incredible fishing opportunities of legend. We invite you to join Captain Ben Trainer as you explore the rich waters called 'The Florida Keys'!



Captain Ben Trainer is a United States Marine Corps Veteran and embodies the Rebel Fishing Alliance Oath of Honor. Service. Conservation.  

As a Sgt. of  Marines, Ben understands the pain and difficulties that wartime service has caused for our nations heroes and gives back to these warriors through Veterans R&R Fishing (a non-profit organization dedicated to serving mental, physical, and occupational therapy to Veterans through the medium of Fishing and the outdoors).  


You can help a veteran with a day or two on the water with Captain Ben. The peace and solitude mixed with adventure can make a real difference.

 Your donation allows us to get these service men and women who have sacrificed so much. Please help our Veterans and Active Duty Service Members have a day of R&R on the water
