Bonefishing Key West

Bonefishing Key West offers professionally guided shallow water sight fishing on the beautiful flats off Key West, Florida. You cannot find a bigger expert or a more patient teacher than Captain Lenny Leonard if you are a beginner. He has been fishing these waters since he was a child and will teach you anything you need to know with a smile on his face, as he wants you to experience the joy of flats fishing.

Key West, Florida consists of miles upon miles of protected marine sanctuaries and flats waiting to be fished. These flats are home to fish species such as Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, Barracuda and Blacktip Sharks. These are the species you will target on your fishing adventure.

You will fish aboard a 2014 Maverick Mirage HPX carbon fiber flats boat. This skiff is designed for flats fishing. It is very comfortable to fish from, and the technical hull is stealthy quiet which helps when stalking Bonefish in 10 inches of water. The skiff is dry and comfortable riding and plenty fast at 40 plus mph. The boat is equipped with all the safety equipment you may need, as well as an icebox for the food and drinks you bring on the trip.

Bonefishing Key West has a strict catch and release policy, and their Captain Lenny is a firm believer in the preservation of the Key West fisheries. He is also a member of Reef Relief, Florida Fish and Wildlife, Oceana, Key West Chamber of Commerce, and We practice Catch & Release.
