Captain Travis has been fishing the waters of south Florida and the Florida Keys his whole life. He has spent the past 8 years fishing out of Islamorada full time with the last 4 years captaining out of Bud N’ Mary’s Marina. He previously captained on the Man O’ War in the same slip which now hosts The Indigenous. Capt. Travis brought The Indigenous to Islamorada in November of 2015 and has quickly turned her into a top competitor in the Keys and South Florida.
The Indigenous is a 1995 38′ Carolina custom built by Sonny Raines and Jerry Elliot as Jerry’s personal daily charter boat. She was built strictly as a day boat and is perfectly laid out to do so with a wide beam and no wasted bedroom space down stairs. Equipped with air conditioning, a wide open salon, a clean and simple head with fresh water sink, The Indigenous is prepped to host both the entire family as well as the serious anglers. Twin Cat diesels give her plenty of speed with an easy 20kt cruise, allowing for plenty of mobility when fishing gets tough or when needing to avoid bad weather.
Since her arrival to Islamorada, we have given her a face lift changing the color of the hull, added 3 more pumps and wells for our demanding live bait fishery, and added one of the tallest towers in the Bud N’ Mary’s fleet for our daily sight fishing needs. The Indigenous has been outfitted with all of the tackle necessary to target any species that swims in our waters from 8# spin tackle to 100# electric combos. Whether it’s trophies or groceries you’re looking for- she is ready to show you a good time on the water!
