Florida Keys Flats Fishing

Shallow water flats fishing for permit Flats and backcountry fishing in Key West, Florida The flats surrounding the Lower Florida Keys are beautiful. If you are up for a relaxing but exciting fishing experience with little impact with waves, flats fishing is for you.

You must then make the cast and hopefully with your guide’s instructions, hook the fish and fight him.
