Islamorada Fishing

There's a good reason behind the paradise village of Islamorada being dubbed the unofficial 'Sport Fishing Capital of the World'. With an easy access to the Atlantic Ocean and the Everglades national park, the reef AND the Gulf, many here claim with confidence there's not a fish that swims in the Atlantic that can't be caught from these shores, and they've got a stack of IGFA records to back that up. Whether you want to get lost exploring the back-country, cruise the prolific flats for giant Tarpon or experience some of the best offshore fishing the Florida Keys have to offer, there's no better place to start than right here - in the very capital of it all.
