The Key West flats are home to some of the largest and smartest Bonefish in the world. Great numbers of them come in from the Atlantic side and the flats are abundant with shrimp, crabs and other delectable Bonefish treats.

Since Bonefishing in Key West isn't always done over perfectly white sand, you'll need good to keep your eyes peeled to be able to make them out against the grassy bottom, as their coloration allows for a camouflage effect. The warm waters from April through November offer perfect conditions for Bonefishing.

Half Day Fishing on the Flats with Sean O'Keefe

Watch the weather. We had just gotten through a cold front, and, not unexpectedly, it took a little hunting to get on the fish. An experienced Captain is a must. Sean O'Keefe at Key West Backwater Fishing knows where to find the fish and how to catch them.

Sometimes the fish aren't biting. There are no guarantees. Enjoy the view and the scenery and conversation if nothing else.

Sunscreen!!!! Also, have an idea of what type of fishing you’d like to do before booking and heading out, that way your captain can get you to the best spot!

Be ready to catch some fish. By hiring a guide, you have everything you need at your fingertips.... Bait, tackle, water and a nice boat to get you onto the water. Morning fishing is probably the best, as the afternoons can be extra steamy and fish may be sluggish.
