A Little about Key Largo

Key Largo is the first Key in the chain of islands that make up the Florida Keys. Long considered the "Dive Capital of the World"

Yes Key Largo is known world wide for its superb diving conditions, but think about it and ask yourself "Why?" The answer is easy, Key Largo has some of the most prolific reefs to be found anywhere in the world and the Gulf Stream passes very close to shore.

This reef is home to millions of fish and acts as barrier to the shallow waters and flats that lay just behind the reef line. Huge grass meadows are an important link in the life cycle of the very fish that we pursue daily. The Gulf Stream bathes Key Largo with warm nutrient rich waters and is home to so many game fish that are so valuable to our fishery. This all makes for great diving and it is the reason why Key Largo has great fishing.

Key Largo: Fishing's Best Kept Secret!

Fishing takes a back seat to Diving in Key Largo and for those who do fish here that's okay! Less pressure means easier fishing. Expansive flats are yours for the day with little or no outside pressure and the offshore hotspots seldom look like a parking lot for boats. The backcountry waters are a maze of waterways and mangrove islands that make for phenomenal flats fishing and the open basins and creeks hold vast species of fish for backcountry fishing. Just like in real estate, fishing is all about location, location, location! Whether you are Bluewater minded or leaning towards the Backcountry, Key Largo's great fishing awaits you!

Flats fishing in Key Largo takes place on both sides of the Rock, Key Largo that is, the oceanside flats hold bonefish, tarpon and permit. And for those who know the fun to be had in fighting barracuda and sharks the Key Largo flats hold all of these great fighting fish. Flats fishing can be done with fly or spinning gear and takes place from smaller 16 to 19 foot poling skiffs. Two anglers and a guide will stalk fish in waist deep to ankle deep water that sometimes resembles a huge lake of vodka and yes a day of flats fishing in Key Largo can be intoxicating!

Backcountry fishing in Key Largo takes place on Florida Bay and mostly within the boundaries of the Everglades National Park. Water depths here average 3 feet with the deeper waters being around 8 feet deep. This shallow marine estuary is such a vast expanse of water that it can take years of exploration for area guides to learn all the ins and outs of this fishery. Thankfully there are many dedicated guides who know these waters like the back of their hand and love showing off these waters to their guests. Redfish, snook, snapper, sea trout, tarpon had sharks await anyone looking for a fight. Other hard fighting fish call the Everglades home too and the bird life and chance to see manatee and dolphin is always there. Many Key Largo guides have made the switch to Bay Boats for backcountry fishing. a bay boat runs from 20 to 25 feet in length and can carry 4 fishermen along with a guide. These shallow drafting boats offer a fast, stable, safe and dry fishing platform for exploring the backcountry waters of the Everglades. Combine the shallow and sheltered waters of the Everglades with the comfort and safety of these larger bay boats and you end up with a great day on the water.
