As your seasoned Florida Keys flats backcountry fishing guide,  I know upper Florida Keys fishing is good all year ’round, but there are certain months to target certain species when it is a bit better and it is my job to know what we should be fishing for at any time of the year for the most productive results.  IDEALLY, you would consider:

Bonefish: March – June or October – December

Redfish:  All year ’round

Permit: June – October

Trout:  All year ’round

Snook:  March – December

Tarpon: March – July

Whether you are an experienced or novice angler, fly, spin or bait, as a professional Florida Keys flats backcountry fishing guide I will ensure an atmosphere of safety, fun and excitement.  For those fly aficionados, I am an expert fly angler and fly tier and use the best fly tackle available.  I teach fly casting and can assist clients to improve their skills and techniques.
