The Variety of fish in the Florida Keys is amazing. This if because or our location having the Gulfstream on one side and the expansive seagrass meadows of Florida Bay and the Everglades National Park on the other side.  These waters are so productive that a dozen species in a 4 hour trip is not uncommon. Cold weather up north pushes migrating species such as sailfish, kingfish, cobia, mackerel and jacks down this way in big numbers in winter months.  Catch and release or Catch dinner...

MEET THE FISH

Here are just a few of the fish we catch. The variety of species is too great to list.

Redfish, an inshore fish we catch around the mangroves alongside Snook and other shoreline dwellers.

Jacks, there are also several different species of Jacks including permit that we catch regularly. The Amberjack is the largest.
