Fishing this spring is shaping up to be a stellar year and summer fishing looks to be very productive and busy.  Whether you would like to fish offshore, inshore, reef or backcountry,  it’s year round business as usual. We offer a variety of charters for every lifestyle and budget. Here’s a quick synopsis of the last month of fishing here in the Florida Keys.
The tarpon are migrating through the lower Keys For the annual palolo worm hatch.  You’ll find thousands of these legends daisy chaining at Bahia Honda Bridge and it’s quite a show to watch and even better to catch one. We do not fight the crowds and target these tarpon here unless you request this location. Jason guides you to more secluded locations and takes you on a true flats guide trip polling you through the backcountry and flats of the Florida Keys.

Reef fishing with live bait is just red hot right now.  We anchor in about 50 to 90 feet of water and put out a chum block with a mix of homemade chum. This is usually a non stop fishing spot with a medley of different edible fish. This is a very popular trip for families and young children. You’ll catch lanes, Yellowtail, grouper, mutton, mangrove, yellowjack. 

Backcountry fishing is busy.  Flyfishing and spin fishing. We are using shrimp, crabs and artificial baits. Tarpon, Permit, barracudas, sharks, bonefish and jacks.
