Fishing in The Florida Keys May 10, 2016
All you need is your Hook & Tackle Gear!
The 125-mile-long arc of islands that comprises the Florida Keys creates a fishing environment unique in the world, and means a noteworthy or at least edible catch is possible virtually any time of year.
Florida Bay, edged by the “inner” curve of the Keys and the Florida mainland, is referred to locally as the backcountry, home to five of the most sought-after gamefish among recreational anglers: bonefish, tarpon, permit, redfish (red drum) and snook.
Off the Keys’ “outer” curve and nearby Gulf Stream lies the Atlantic Ocean. In these deep-sea areas are some of the greatest sport fish in the world: blue and white marlin, dolphins, sailfish and swordfish.
