More about Backcountry Fishing
Backcountry fishing by definition is fishing that is done on the inland waters around the flats in the shallows and channels. This area is pristine, clear and always full of fish.
Backcountry Species Of Fish
In the backcountry we are always on the hunt for many different species of fish. Always looking for a bent rod and a new species to tackle. The most popular species of backcountry fishing are the tarpon, jacks, barracudas, trout, pompano, black tip shark, bull shark, lemon shark, mangrove snapper and lady fish. More selected species include cobia, permit, bonefish, grouper and goliath grouper.
During the winter it is not uncommon to have one of our fishing charters to come back with 20 plus species of fish. All types of anglers enjoy this trip. Fly fishing, spin fishing and even bait casters are all provided.

Now is the time to come to Key West and experience tarpon fishing. The migration is in full swing and the fish are chewing well. Fly fishermen, this is your month here in Key West. Sight fish for tarpon on the edges of the flats. The tides all day long are working and holding fish. We have had a cool spell at the beginning of the month holding the tarpon to a bite all day long, not just morning and evening.
Flats fishing is really coming alive. The calmer weather has shown up now and the fish are on the flats ready to eat. Permit and Bonefishing will improve throughout the month with the unseasonal water temps the fish dont care what time of day it is.
We use the term "backcountry fishing" to describe a de tuned version of flats fishing. We go fishing in the same area but the charter experience is kinder to less specific anglers. More hands on help from the fishing guide to improve your day.
We use the term "flats fishing" to describe a more technical fishing charter experience. Accurate casting, self reliant anglers. Good listeners.
While both are great fishing charters. Backcountry fishing appeals to folks who just want to bend rods on many different species of fish or on whatever is available as long as it fights. Flats fishing charters are more for advanced anglers that have an agenda.
