Bonefish

  • Game Qualities Excellent
  • Habitats Flats, Backcountry, Inshore

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.

What People Are Saying About Bonefish Fishing in Key West

"My First Bonefish!"

Tim Dohaney fished with Capt. Mike Wilbur’s Chaser Key West on April 14, 2018

I've been a life-long fisherman but never had the chance to go flats fishing and catch a bonefish until I hooked up with Captain Mike recently. The weather was a bit off, as the wind was blowing pretty good, but Mike's skiff is awesome and we were able to hook a couple of nice fish including my first bonefish. I'll always remember it!
