Southernmost Subtropical Paradise

Fishing Key West - The Koran contends that "Allah does not deduct from man's allocated days those hours spent in fishing". That's particularly accurate in Key West, where sportfishing in a variety of modes is available almost every day of the year with the lure of the Atlantic Ocean reefs and Gulf Stream big-game angling, as well as fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. One of Florida's largest fishing fleets of sportfishing boats is available at Key West charter boat docks, which offer deep-sea gamefishing as well as party boats. Some of the most renowned skippers in Florida offer a wide variety of fishing experiences for anglers embarking from Key West docks. Key West skippers not only intimately know the waters surrounding the Southernmost City but are up-to-date on what's biting - and where - and daily hotspots.

The traditional fine weather associated with the Keys favors angling, and rarely does foul weather interfere with fishing excursions. A day of deep-sea fishing in Keys waters is a memorable experience, with even the novice fisherman afforded an opportunity to fight a big marlin or sailfish. Less ambitious anglers may find a challenge in the natural coral reefs and many shipwrecks in the waters near Key West, which are noted for their productive fishing. The Key West sportfishing fleet offers some 60 deep-sea charter boats, 15 flats-fishing skiffs and two large party fishing boats which provide a variety of angling for the entire family during half-or full-day trips. Charter boats usually cater to parties of four to six persons with rates averaging about $550 per day for everything except lunch. Light tackle boats may accommodate one or two fishermen at lower rates. Party boat tarriffs average $30 per person for a full-day trip, including tackle.

For visiting anglers who trail their own small fishing craft, a public ramp at Garrison Bight may be used for a $5 fee. There is a $6 parking fee for cars and boat trailers. Numerous tackle and bait shops are available throughout the island city for do-it-yourself anglers. Most sought-after species for the deep-sea angler are blue and white marlin, sailfish, wahoo, dolphin, blackfin tuna, kingfish, barracuda and monster shark. Reef or wreck fishermen, either on small boats or party boats, may find a real fight in fishing for sporty amberjack, large grouper and oversize snapper, as well as other reef species generally taken while bottom fishing.

The smaller, light tackle craft specialize in shallow water action and "backcountry" angling for such prizes as bonefish, tarpon and permit, all generally caught on lighter tackle than big-game or reef sportfish require. And, for the younger fishermen and anglers on very limited budgets, outboard-motor-powered skiffs and even bridge angling provide the thrills of saltwater fishing at minimal cost, when visiting Key West.
