Fishing in the Florida Keys

Florida Keys: fishermen's paradiseA chain of roughly 1,700 islands stretching for 113 miles from Miami to Key West and quite simply a fisherman’s paradise. What makes this place so special is not just the consistently excellent sport, or the stunning backdrop (thought that all helps, certainly) but the sheer variety.

Heading to the Upper Keys puts you within easy range of the Everglades and sport from snook, tarpon and redfish, head a little further south and you’re in Islamorada where a mixture of red-hot deep-sea fishing and incredible backcountry fishing have helped earn this place the tag of “sportfishing capital of the world”. That trend continues down into the Lower Keys and Marquesas, where the tarpon is royalty, permit are worshipped and bonefish grow to incredible sizes. And if you fancy something a little laid-back, party boats and split charter reef-fishing options abound in Key West. Get in the car, head down Route 1, stop anywhere you like and start fishing – you can’t go wrong.
