Backcountry Fishing in Key Largo

When it comes to fishing, there are many places around the world that offer a variety of different techniques that should be on your bucket list. Key Largo backcountry fishing shoud definitely make the cut. These beautiful waters have high levels of nutrients that attract huge populations of bait fish. This in turn draws in the larger game that you’ll be targeting on your trip.

Trip Types

The backcountry is protected from strong winds and high waves, making these trips great for people new to fishing or who suffer from seasickness.

You’ll spend the day fishing on a small boat such as a skiff or a flats boat. These can usually take around 2–3 anglers. They are versatile and can easily maneuver into hard-to-reach areas.

You can expect to be sight fishing in these shallow waters on a 4–8 hour trip. Most boats will have an elevated platform specifically for this technique.

Backcountry fishing in Key Largo is the trip to go on for anglers who want to catch many different species. The species you’ll be targeting include Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Seatrout, Sharks, Pompano, Jack Crevalle, and Black Drum. The captain will advise you what can be kept and of what size.

How to Prepare

Your fishing license for the day is covered by the boat, so you don’t need to worry about buying one on your own.

Due to the space available on the boat, you won't be able to bring a cooler of food and drinks along. Pack the essentials, a camera, and your lunch in your bag.

The captain will have light tackle on board for you to use. If you're bringing your own, let the captain know in advance so he can make room. Spinning gear and fly fishing rods and reels will be put through their paces in the backcountry.
