Islamorada The sport fishing capitol of the world

Islamorada Fishing

The 4 Keys that make up Islamorada sit in the middle of three distinct bodies of water. The Atlantic Ocean gets all of the press but there is Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico on the "backside" of the islands to take into account!  Having these three different marine eco systems as neighbors makes for a target rich world class sport fishing environment.

More about Islamorada Fishing

   If highly technical sight fishing with an 8 wt fly rod is your thing, its here.  The challenge of playing an 80 pound Sailfish to boat side for a quick release on 12 pound spinning gear is the ultimate offshore quest for some anglers and it awaits you offshore.  But that is just the beginning, being shallow minded is how many guides make a living here in Islamorada, stalking permit, tarpon and bonefish on light tackle spin and fly gear in 2 feet of water.  Your lifetime of fishing adventures can start here in the Florida Keys and Islamorada offers Captains and Guides that will take you from baby steps to epic battles and every fish in between.  New fishermen find the Backcountry fishing and Family fishing charters that we offer to be the perfect introduction for them and their families.  The gentle guidance and comfortable surroundings that are found on a Bay Boat charter is the perfect way to get kids started on a long tradition of go fishing on family outings.  

About the Fish

The list of fish that are available to an angler is as thick as a city telephone book! and that's just an estimate!  Due to the lay out of the Islands of Islamorada and the water that surround them it is possible to pursue piscatorial delights upon all three bodies of water in the same day from the same boat.  Really!  It is possible to chase Sailfish, Tuna, Mahi-mahi and a wide variety of reef fish in the morning on Atlantic waters then run under one of the many bridges that connect the Keys to one another, Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico are right in front of you and the fish are ready.  Redfish, Snook, Sea Trout, Tarpon, Bonefish and Permit are just the tip of the iceberg as far as what you will encounter out on these bodies of water. 
   So from the blue water to the back water and every fish in between Islamorada should fit the billfish!

Types Of Fishing out of Islamorada

Flats fishing Islamorada on both the near shore flats and deep into the backcountry will offer any skill level a challenging time on the water.  The flats that surround Islamorada hold Tarpon, Permit and Bonefish and a short ride into the backcountry and offers Redfish, Snook, Shark, Sea Trout and Tarpon fishing on the vast grass flats found there.  Tarpon fishing for many starts here in Islamorada.  The channels that separate the Keys from one another are huge buffets for Tarpon!  Each tide brings bait fish, shrimp and crabs past the huge schools of Tarpon that set up camp there every Spring.  This is where many people get "hooked" on Tarpon fishing or more to the point Tarpon fighting!  When the season is in full swing your guide will be refer to any Tarpon that doesn't tip the scales over the 100 pound mark as a guppy!
   Backcountry fishing is a term used here in the Keys to describe the vast expanse of water that lays on the "backside" of the Keys.  The water of the backcountry averages 3 feet deep and is a mix of mud and grass flats, long slender banks and Mangrove islands that border deeper lakes or basins.  This waterscape is varied and holds too many species of fish to list here, but to say that you will keep a bent fishing rod and very busy is no fish tale.  The rank beginner to the most ardent of fly fishermen enjoy hooking up in the backcountry.  Bay boats are a very popular way to explore the backcountry.  A bay boat is a 20 to 24 foot long, shallow drafting boat that easily seats 4 adults and a guide.  The bay boat offers a safe, drive and very comfortable ride and the wide open decks and casting areas make for the perfect platform from which you and your group or family can enjoy hours of fishing fun. 
Comfort is key to a great day on the water and the stability of the bay boat design along with the shallow protected waters of the backcountry work together to ensure the day is one for the memories.      

  For the family fun fishing trips we offer the calm waters of the Florida Keys are a great place to introduce both young and older people to the fun of fishing.  Family Fun Fishing is just that a fun day of catching fish and making memories.  First time fishermen find themselves at ease on the larger more stable Bay boats that we use for these trips.  Fun trips are about hooking up as many fish and a wide variety of fish in a laid back and very relaxed manor.  The Captains and Guides on these trips realize that they are working with "newbies" to the sport and are ready to take plenty of time introducing these people to the amazing world that awaits them.  The boat becomes a classroom for anyone wanting to learn, from knots to lure and bait selection and of course the art of casting, hooking and fighting a fish to boat side will be taught to all who would like to learn.  For the smaller future anglers the fishing rods are scaled down to ensure a comfortable fit for hours of fishing fun.  Family Fun trips can go to the reefs, the backcountry or the Gulf of Mexico and they are offer as 4 - 6 - 8 hour trips.
