Popular fishing destinations in the Florida Keys

Florida Keys Bonefishing

Bonefishing and permit fishing off the coast of Islamorada is also popular fishing in the Florida Keys. Bonefishing is popular throughout the year, however cold spells will drive the bonefish into deeper water and prolonged winds will make the shallows where they’re caught extremely turbid, hindering sight casting. Fly fishing for bonefish is especially appealing for the skilled angler.

Florida Keys Offshore Fishing

Florida Keys deep sea charter fishing is also hugely popular. Offshore fishing for sailfish, kingfish, dolphin, and other game fish can be found off the coast of the Florida Keys. The benefit to offshore fishing in the Florida Keys is the proximity to deeper water, which can be found in as close as a couple miles out.
