Key West bonefishing is amazing! In the past few years I have seen the numbers of bonefish on Key West flats grow exponentially. Sizable fish up to 10lbs are being caught during peak times. Spin fishing or fly fishing young or old and not matter what your experience there is a Key West bonefishing trip for you.
Bonefish are generally found on the flats or shallow waters of the backcountry here out of Key West. They are spooky and require a delicate (quiet) approach to get within casting distance when they are on the flats. However we also know where they are not so spooky offering our less advantaged anglers a shot at the "Grey Ghost" of the flats.
We go fishing for bonefish with two types of boats depending on our clients needs. Bay boats offer the most stable fishing platform and allows us to bonefish with more than 2 persons per boat. Using trolling motors to go from flat to flat these boats float in less than 12 inches of water. Spin fishing with live bait and jigs or fly fishing.
A flats boat is the traditional way to fish for bonefish here in the Florida Keys and Key West. For that reason I will always have a flats boat to carry my dedicated flats fishing anglers out to the flats for shots at bonefish, tarpon and permit the "old school" way. Fly fishing or spin fishing with live bait jigs.
Fly fishermen find the challenge quite unique with a fast and accurate cast necessary to make presentation. Check out my page dedicated to fly fishing for bonefish.
Bonefishing charters are usually 4 and 6 hours. 8 hour
trips are also available but the angler should leave
himself open to fish for other species as well during
that day to get a more fulfilling experience. No more
than two can go on my flats boat but my bay boats can handle as many as 4 per boat.
