Fly fishing, spin, or plug tackle enthusiasts can enjoy some of the most exciting “skinny” water fishing trips in the wide world of angling.
The confluence of the Everglades, Florida Bay and the Atlantic Ocean provide the perfect habitat for Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit, Snook, Redfish and Trout on the seemingly endless flats that are only minutes away from the dock.
The acrobatic antics of a possible world record “Silver King,” the screaming drags that signal the sizzling runs of Bonefish and the nearly nonstop action of Trout and Ladyfish are just some of the excitements you can expect when you fish with our world renown Islamorada Backcountry Guides.
All levels of anglers will know that they’ve truly found the Valhalla of fly and light tackle fishing.
Florida Tarpon Fishing is truly spectacular! Many guides also fish the Gulf of Mexico at certain times of year for cobia, mackerel, goliath groupers, permit, triple tail, and other species.
Being located in Islamorada offers both the great fishing of the Everglades National Park and the Gulf.
Sometimes the fishing on the oceanside is particularly good as well, the flats hold bonefish and tarpon, as well as some of the shallow ‘patch’ reefs for snapper, grouper, mackerel, and yellowtail. All are options on a Florida Keys Flats Fishing expedition.
Maximum 3 Persons Per boat (sorry, no exceptions)
