If you are planning your trip to fish for a particular species of fish, please check the Key West fishing calendar or email to ask about the availability of the species.
Backcountry/Flats charters include use of all tackle, license, bait, flies and a cooler with ice for your drinks and lunch. Anglers must provide their own drinks and lunch.
