FISHING FLORIDA KEYS
Fishing the Florida Keys is the best way for anglers to experience the greatest saltwater fishing the United States has to offer.
From the lively waters of the Everglades down to the remote waters of the Marquesas Keys, a fishing expedition in the Florida Keys is an angling experience not to be missed.
The Everglades tout some of the most remote year round saltwater fishing in the United States. The variety of what can be pursued in the Everglades is astounding – snook, redfish, tarpon and trout are only a few species the Glades have to offer.
The Everglades are famed for early season tarpon fishing. Tarpon will flood into the Glades in late winter and early spring and lay up following a few days of warm weather. This situation equates to a fly fisherman’s dream! The Everglades also offer incredible redfishing, especially around the flats of Flamingo.
Islamorada fishing expeditions offer access to oceanside flats, excellent offshore fishing as well as all of Florida Bay and the Everglades. Islamorada is dubbed the Sportfishing Capital of the World and for good reason. Where else is it possible to snag a sailfish offshore in the morning, and then venture into the backcountry in pursuit of bonefish, tarpon, redfish, snook and the elusive permit in just inches of water?
Marathon is all about fishing the bridges and flats that surround them. Shallow water fishing in the Florida Keys is one of the greatest fishing experiences in the world in terms of accessibility and the quality of fishing. Marathon flats fishing offers amazing opportunities to sight tarpon, bonefish and permit, as well as the occasional barracuda, snook, redfish, jack and shark.
The Marquesas Keys lie just over 20 miles west of Key West where the Atlantic Ocean converges with the Gulf of Mexico and are perfect for those who want an expedition in a place that most will never visit.
Permit are the name of the fishing game in the crystal clear waters of the Marquesas. Tarpon are also kings of these flats, but catching a permit on the fly in the Florida Keys is the holy grail of fishing! The Marquesas Keys also offer unparalleled shark and barracuda fishing for those who enjoy a toothy catch.
