The most unique and addictive angling in the world can be found in the clear backcountry waters off Key West. Famous modern day anglers such as Flip Pallot, Lefty Kreh, and even Jimmy Buffett have all written extensively of their adventures on the flats of the Lower Keys, where the sport was pioneered. Their tales of fly fishing for the enigmatic tarpon, bonefish, and permit, in an environment of unparalleled beauty, have made this the fastest growing segment of saltwater angling. Combining the best of hunting and fishing, a day on the flats with a dedicated Key West guide is a must for any light tackle enthusiast.

The light tackle boats of the Keys are the most flexible charters in the world. Almost any species, from tarpon in Key West Harbor to sailfish beyond the reef, can be pursued from these powerful center-console craft. The International Game Fish Association currently lists over 400 world records caught in the Keys and the majority were hooked from our light tackle fleet. These charters can be customized to meet any angler's wishes. From a casual trip with the family for some tasty grouper to an expedition for a fly rod record kingfish, a light tackle charter is sure to suit your needs.
