The Lower Florida Keys offer exceptional fishing opportunities. Located ideally between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, this unique area is known for impressive catches. If you want to take advantage of either onshore or offshore fishing in the Lower Keys, it's important to make sure you obtain a Florida fishing license from a county courthouse, marina, or tackle shop.

Big Pine Key Florida is a great place to set out on a chartered fishing tour. With many guided options, even beginners will stand a good chance of finding some of the area's prize fish, such as Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Kingfish, and Amberjack, to name a few.

Light tackle backcountry fishing or flats fishing are perfect options for nature lovers. Remarkable fly-fishing experiences abound in the Florida Keys backcountry. Flats fishing charters set out early in the morning, so be prepared with plenty of sunscreen, a protective hat, food, and drinks.
