Gulf of Mexico and the Florida Bay in the Upper Florida Keys. This makes
for stellar fishing! The warm Gulf Stream current runs just off the coast
of the Florida Keys and creates a path for migrating species of fish.
The Florida Keys, both in the back country and the Atlantic side, contains
more species of fish than anywhere else in the Atlantic making the
Florida Keys a Fisherman's Dream!!
Florida Keys fishing charters and Key West fishing charters will take
you either to the oceanside or the flats and backcountry for a Florida Keys
Fishing experience you will never forget! Florida Keys Fishing guides are
talented and knowledgeable when it comes to where to find the fish,
what fish to try to catch and how to catch the fish. Florida Keys
Sportfishing (catch and release) is very popular up and down the 120
miles of Florida Keys.
There are a series of three "humps" located on the edge of the
continental shelf off of the Florida Keys. The most popular is the
Marathon Hump. These humps are loosely called seamounts, because
they are like mountains rising from the ocean floor. Worldwide, there are
thousands of these structures. Some are remnants of underwater
volcanoes; others may have once been emergent islands. Wherever you
find them, seamounts are unique marine habitats. These areas are
where several Florida Keys sportfishing charters will go depending on
the weather and seas.
If the seas are rough, you always have the choice of Florida Keys flats or
back country fishing. Florida Keys and Key West flats fishing guides will
pilot you into the wilderness of the uninhabited Keys and mangrove
shorelines of the Florida Bay or the Gulf. Fly fishing, light tackle fishing,
bone fishing and tarpon fishing - all good choices for Florida Keys and
Key West back country fishing.
Florida Keys and Key West reef fishing and wreck fishing are other very
popular choices for light tackle fishing. Reef fishing and wreck fishing in
the Florida Keys and Key West yields a wide range of fish, many of which
are especially fine for the table.
sandbar. The bottom of these areas are mostly covered in a carpet of
seagrass, known as Turtle Grass. This seagrass is the environment that
the most challenging fish come to hunt for food. Bonefish, permit,
tarpon, barracuda, and sharks are commonly found in the shallows.
Searching for and sighting fish to cast at is what the sport of flats fishing
is all about. Fortunately for Florida Keys and Key West visitors, we are
surrounded by shallow water: one or two feet deep and is often clear as
Through the years flats fishing has gained popularity as being the sport
fisherman's golf game. Back country and flats fishing is usually a more
relaxed experience than offshore fishing. Florida Keys flats guides and
back country fishing guides have a special blend of talent, knowledge
and skill and are ready to share it with you!
|Key West Fishing
The Atlantic Ocean is Key West's playground for deep sea fishing. The island of Key West is where three bodies of water
come together - the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlanta Ocean and the Gulf Stream. The seas between Key West and Cuba are
considered the most biologically diverse part of the entire Atlantic Ocean.
Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Cobia, and King Mackerel are a few of the fish caught in
the waters around Key West. Every month of the year there are different migrating fish making deep sea fishing a year round
sport. Wintertime Tuna & Kingfish, summertime Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi/Dorado) and Billfish, and a host of year-round species
keep the action in Key West consistently hot.
Key West has the much deserved reputation of having the finest flats fishing found anywhere in the world. Tarpon, permit,
bonefish, shark, and barracuda can be caught in the back country of Snipe Keys. Fly fishing in the far western atoll known
as the Marquesas Keys will challenge your skill in light tackle sight fishing. You'll catch Jack crevalle, bar jack, ladyfish,
snook and redfish in the clear, pristine water in and around the flats of the Lower Keys and Key West.
