Key West Flats Fishing

Flats Fishing Key West There is a romance to flats fishing that has been captured by the fishing guides of the Key West Fishing Team and they are ready to share it with you.

Hunting and fishing combined in one outdoor activity. The flats are spread out in the backcountry of Key West. Shallow shelf's with grass, sand, sponges and corals teaming with life. An estuary of marine life that may surprise you. Always gin clear sight fishing is the name of the game when on the flats in search for the big three, the Key West grand slam consisting of a tarpon a permit and a bonefish caught all on one day. Nowhere else in the world offers this opportunity more months out of the year than Key West, Florida.

Hire one of our fishing guides and find out for yourself what an incredible trip this is. Your fishing guide will patiently share with you tips on casting a spinning rod or fly fishing tackle. He will also offer tricks for seeing these mighty shallow water sport fish as they seem like ghosts and are hard to spot.

As your guide poles the boat along, gently in the shallows in his state of the art flats boat he will be spotting fish for you to cast to with specific instructions. Once you hook up it's you and the fish one on one. Getting the fish closer your guide will assist you in landing him and getting the photo for a safe release.
