Key West Kayak Fishing Photos

 

Bonefish

Stalking this elusive fish on the flats is a real challenge. Our kayaks enable us to access water so shallow few would have believed fish were there.

Mangrove tidal creeks

Paddling through the mangrove tidal creeks reveals a major component of the Keys eco-system. The mangroves provide sanctuary to a wide variety of marine species. Truly unique and beautiful.

Tarpon landed

This guest took the battle to a whole other level. He fished backwards, straddling the kayak.

Big Barracuda

Large barracuda stalk the shallows in the cooler winter months. What a beauty!

Cubera Snapper

One of the many snappers that we catch. This one was caught & released while wading next to a small channel.

Jack Crevalle

A nice jack and a huge fight. Another great day of fishing.

Another beautiful Keys sunset

Viewing the sunset from a kayak is unforgettable. Our relaxing eco-tours are suited for all abilities.

Bonnethead shark

This is the smallest of the hammerhead family, growing up to only 44 inches. They forage the flats for crabs and shrimp, and make an excellent sight-casting target.

Battle underway

This turned out to be a permit, caught while jigging shrimp in a nearby channel. Always a huge battle!

Marquesa Permit

Our custom trip to the Marquesas accesses on of the world great fishing destinations. The Atlantic's only coral atoll lies 20 miles west of Key West. Our mothership will take kayaks and anglers to fishing heaven for a full day adventure.

Permit landed

This is the permit from the "Battle underway" photo.

Baby tarpon

This may be the smallest tarpon we've ever caught. Hiding in the mangrove tidal creeks, in deep water, on the flats, at any size, these gamefish deserve their legendary reputation.

This fish should live over 50 years and grow to over 250 pounds!

 

Cuda plug removal

Your experienced guide will handle this delicate procedure.

Bonnethead Shark

The smallest of the hammerhead family is the bonnethead, a wily adversary of the flats.

Keys Fishing Fact
The Florida Keys are located in the most biologically diverse area of the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean sandwiching the islands, while the warm Gulf Stream current meanders close by, the ocean surrounding the Keys contains more species of fish than anywhere else in the Atlantic.
