Backcountry Fishing Charters

All the area North and West of Key West is considered the backcountry. If its shallow and has islands all around you are in the backcountry. Our backcountry fishing guides generally use bay boats to get them in the skinny waters on the flats propelled by trolling motors in search for their sport fish. Not as technical as flats fishing but just as fun and more species to fish for usually. Cary up to 4 ( 3 or less recommended) anglers and have the fishing time of your life catching many different species. We focus on what is biting vs on what our anglers are looking to catch. This is the best way to go tarpon fishing here in Key West. Some of our backcountry fishing charters offer snorkeling too.
