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 great fishing on light tackle, but you'll need a guide to find the hot-spots and navigate these treacherously shallow waters. Navigating the channels and flats on the shallow bay side of the Keys requires considerable local knowledge.

 

    Tarpon

    In the spring, Tarpon fishing is at its best! These fish jump impressively and put on a show that is a memorable sight. Tarpon will challenge any angler. 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. 

    Availability: March through August. 

    Cost: Starting at $450 for 2 people (4-hour trip).
