Backcountry Fishing in Everglades National Park and the Flats of the Florida Keys
"The Sport Fishing Capital of the World"
The flats and channels off of Islamorada, Florida Keys provide some of the best Tarpon and Bonefish waters in the world. Our Bonefish flats are close by and easily accessible for half- or full-day fishing trips. Tarpon migrate through the main channels and bridges as well as in Florida Bay. Tarpon fishing can be done on evening trips as well as during the day.
An adventure into the Everglades National Park is beautiful as well as exciting.
The "backcountry" as it's called, is made up of hundreds of small islands, shallow flats and bays. Fishing can be fantastic on the flats and grass beds for a variety of fish such as Spotted Sea Trout, Redfish, Jack Crevalle, Snapper, Ladyfish and Sharks. In the deep cuts up against the islands, the Snook and Snapper cruise through the mangrove roots awaiting the perfect presentation of your bucktail jig to hit the water.
Fishing in the backcountry is for the amateur as well as the experienced angler. For the avid anglers, you can cast bucktails, jigs, plugs and lures. The novice can simply fish with live shrimp and a popping cork.
