Backcountry Fishing Charter on Islamorada Flats | Florida
Some of the premiere fishing areas in the Florida Keys are on the famous Islamorada flats. Bonefish, tarpon, redfish, snook, permit are the catch-of-the-day here, but expect barracuda, shark and other species to visit too. This is a great day trip--shooting across the Florida Bay to the areas around the Everglades National Park for an incredible fishing experience.
Stalk or hunt on the flats or shallow waters, the elusive Bonefish, also known as the "Grey Ghost." Bonefishing is year-round in the Florida Keys. Poling across the shallow flats, the Bonefish is one most sought-after by anglers. The Bonefish will test any angler as one of the toughest fish to fight.
In the spring, Tarpon fishing is at its best. Also known as the 'Silver King', The Tarpon, weighing from 40 to 180 lbs., is every fisherman's dream. These fish jump impressively and put on a show that is a memorable sight. Tarpon will challenge any angler. Don't forget your camera so this one may be added to your fishing photo album. Although Tarpon fishing is best in the spring, smaller local fish are caught year-round. Large, traveling fish push through from March until July: April, May, and June being the peak time for these fish.
