Welcome to Overtime Flats Fishing Charters. We specialize in light tackle flats fishing on the flats of the Lower Florida Keys and Key West for TARPON, BONEFISH, PERMIT and BARRACUDA. Both half-day and full-day charters are available.

Captain Pat Bracher and his fully equipped 18’ Hewes Redfisher is ready to take you on a day of catch and release flats fishing you will remember for a lifetime. Since Captain Pat trailers his boat daily, he has the added luxury of mobility. Depending on the time of year, weather conditions and target species of the day, Captain Pat has the flexibility of launching his boat at one of the many marinas throughout the lower Keys and Key West. This is just one of the many ways that Capain Pat helps to insure success.

Let’s meet the Captain.

First, as a charterboat mate and then as a flats guide Captain Pat Bracher has more than twenty years of professional fishing experience. After graduating from Old Dominion University in Virginia with a business degree in 1985, Captain Pat established Overtime Charters in 1987. Since then sportfishing has been his sole livelihood.


That’s Captain Pat in a nut shell. His passion for fishing and determination to provide successful fishing trips day in and day out has lead to great results and is the number one reason why his loyal customers return year after year.

Captain Pat has been honored by the Key West and Lower Keys Fishing Tournament with many awards including:

Cuba Bowl 2018

Day 1;

Steve and Jamie had a good first day with 122.5 and 125 inches giving them a good team score.


Day 2:

Jamie had to fish alone due to Steve's back going out which took us out of team contention but Jamie had another good day with 131.75 inches which was good for second place overall spin division.  Great Job Guys1
