Inshore Fishing in Key West

No matter what time of year you head to the southernmost tip of the US, thrilling fishing awaits. It’s one of the few places in the world where you can catch Tarpon all year round, and boasts Permit and Bonefish too. These three make up the “Grand Slam” of inshore fishing – an honor for anglers everywhere. Step aboard a Key West inshore fishing charter and find out for yourself!

What to Expect

Incredible fishing awaits just seconds from shore. Even a four-hour Key West inshore fishing charter will see you fill the boat. If you want to hone your fishing skills, trips also last six or eight hours. Hop aboard and test your skills against some tough-fighting beasts.

Backcountry

For non-stop, rod-bending action, hit the backcountry. These waters are overflowing with feed that predators love to hunt. Sight cast in the clear water and go after anything from a monster Tarpon to delicious Snappers and Trout. 
 
The backcountry is the ideal place to learn to fish. The water here is calm and gentle, so you won’t get seasick! With the prospect of a bite every minute, you’ll be a pro in no time. Your experienced guide will show you how it’s done, while avid anglers will love the non-stop fishing. 

Flats

If you’re a seasoned angler then a trip to the flats won’t disappoint. Your best bet of landing the Grand Slam is in these murky waters. Utilize all your skills and cast without disturbing the spooky fish around you. As you feel the bite, you’ll know that you’re in for a thrilling battle. 
 
Most Key West inshore fishing charters take place aboard skiffs or flats boats. Your captain will power the boat with a push pole, allowing you to navigate even the skinniest of waters. You’ll mainly sight cast, so keep your eye out for boats with a casting platform. 

How to Prepare

You’ll want to cover up from the sun. Wear long sleeves, a cap, and bring sunscreen. Check with your captain if they provide water, but you’ll want to bring some snacks and drinks of your own too. 
 
If you want to go fly fishing, check with your captain if the gear is included. In most cases, you’ll be advised to bring your own. 
 
Everything else you need, including a license, is taken care of. So come and check out a Key West inshore fishing charter!

Four hours is enough for kids or anyone new to deep sea fishing. Otherwise, if you can afford it, 6+ hours will get you much better options and more fish on the boat. Also, later June seems to be better than ealrier

Check the weather and make sure you’re prepared for high seas just in case. We had some pretty good swells and the wind was only 12-14 mph. One of guys got sick the first hour and basically missed out on the trip.

I was told years ago by several Marine Patrol Agents in Key West who would you fish with in Key West and both said Captain Brad with the Southpaw. My family and friends went out with Captain Brad about 14 years ago the first time and were very happy with our fishing trip. Captain Brad is a very Professional and experienced fisherman.
