Flats Fishing in Key Largo

Are you ready for the Key Largo flats fishing trip of your dreams? Whether you’re heading to the Everglades, Biscayne Bay, or staying in the Keys, there are plenty of fishing hotspots to wet your line in. It's best to book with a local guide, so every minute of your vacation is used to its full potential.

Trip Types

Trip lengths vary from 4–8 hours. Key Largo flats fishing guides know all the best places to take you, so the ride from the dock to the fishing grounds won't be too long.

You’ll spend the day fishing from a skiff. These are stable and light, allowing you to maneuver into hard to reach areas to target your prey in their habitat.

Due to the size of the boat, group sizes will also be smaller. This allows you to have your lines in the water longer. Be aware of the space available and leave your large coolers and any unecessary gear at home.

Trips are not usually species-specific, which gives you the option to target Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, Snook, Jack Crevalle, Redfish, Trout, and even Sharks all in one trip. If you have a particular species in mind that you wish to target, just let the captain know before the day of the trip.

How to Prepare

Have your camera ready! As well as a variety of fish species, you’ll see a lot of other wildlife, including gators and flamingos.

You’ll mostly be sight fishing, so have a good pair of sunglasses with you. If you can get a polarized pair with a brown or amber tint, do! For the serious angler, bring your polarized shades with side shields.

The fishing license for the day is usually included in the price of the trip. You will need to bring along food and drinks.

Book a Key Largo flats fishing trip today for an unforgettable day out. Your whole group will love the action in the water and the wildlife and views surrounding you above the water.

We were lucky to snag a Wahoo today as it is the end of their season. January is the beginning. So if Wahoo is what you're after, know that is your window.

Talk to your charter and make clear what your expectations are. If they are as good as Underwater Cowboy, they will be upfront and professional.

Patience - the fish are out there and they are biting. Full moon allows the predators to hunt all night so expect slower days when the moon is full, or near full.

Decide if you want to fish the Atlantic Ocean side but make sure it is a calm day or the Florida Bay/ mangrove side which is quieter with different kinds of fish like snook, mangrove snapper sea trout, redfish etc.
