Book a 4, 6 or 8 hour adventure for 4 or less with one of our amazing professional fishing guides that know how to show everyone a great time fishing and catching without ever losing sight of land. Short run times to the fishing grounds offer the best value for a charter in Key West. The selection of species we fish for are usually captains choice based on what is in season and fun to catch for his crew.
The mangrove islands that surround Key West to the North and the West are considered to be the Backcountry. When we fish in that area.. we call it backcountry fishing.. This is also where we go Flats Fishing where the focus is on three particular species of fish caught in very shallow waters using flats fishing boats. Generally the water depths are between 1 and 10 feet. This shallow water is mostly crystal clear and very calm making this a very desirable environment for any anglers.
Most backcountry fishing charters depart around 7 – 8 am in the morning and then around 12:30 – 2 pm or later in the afternoon.
The fishing boats are bay boats and they range in size from 22 – 24ft in Length. They are fast and capable of getting deep into the backcountry islands.
All fishing gear, bait, bottled waters and licenses are provided in the cost of the trip.
Any legally harvested fish will be cleaned and prepared to take to local restaurant for hook and cook. (I can help here).
