Fishing Together Makes Family Vacations So Much Better
The Florida Keys have plenty of fun activities to offer, but sport fishing is one that keeps drawing visitors year after year. The jewel-toned waters of the Keys are a sport angler’s paradise, with a wide range of species available virtually all year long. If you’re ready to tell the story about the ones that didn’t get away, it’s time to launch into the paradise known as the Florida Keys for your next family vacation at Mangrove Marina.
The Best Fishing Spots in the Florida Keys
The Florida Keys have so much to offer families, but its fishing is what sets this little piece of heaven apart. Anglers come from around the country and even the world to drop their lines. Virtually any fish imaginable can be caught in the waters around the Keys. Make some room in your vacation schedule for these excursions:
1. Scout around the inland flats for some tarpon, bonefish and permit, or take a deep-water charter towards Cuba for snook, lemon shark or yellowtail snapper. The waters are calm and full of life, and your guide will know exactly where to cast off for the best catch.
2. Head into the backcountry for a good workout, fantastic scenery and some of the best fishing spots in the Florida Keys. Slide into the mangrove cuts, where the waters range from just a few feet deep to more than 20 feet. They’re all crystal clear and teeming with snook, tarpon, bonnethead sharks, Crevalle jack and snapper, ripe for the taking.
3. Channel fishing is a must-do whether you’re local to the keys or here for a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Check out Cudjoe Key’s shallows, ideal for sight fishing with deeper cuts that conceal bonefish, tarpon, snapper, permit and jacks. The dense vegetation protects the channels from the wind, making these keys more accessible even when other areas might not be, and you can spend some time drift fishing along the shoreline or angling from a kayak if you’d prefer.
