Just beyond the reefs of the Florida Keys is a large expanse of deep water that can plunge to depths of 1,500 feet or more. These deep waters are teaming with game fish, including mahi mahi, blue marlin, swordfish, sailfish, kingfish, wahoo, tuna, barracuda, amberjack and shark. Each of the species are the catch of a lifetime that taste as beautiful as they look.
When you go back-country fishing in the Florida Keys, you can expect to catch any number of famed sport fish, including bonefish, redfish, sea trout and silver king tarpon. Back-country fishing expeditions explore the shallow flats of sand, mud and grass that surround the Florida Keys. These unique flats attract sport fish that come to feed on the shallow-water creatures that maker their home in the flats of the Atlantic Ocean or Florida Bay. There are many experienced guides in the area, but Captain Randy Crenshaw at (305) 852-9162 is the trusted back-country guide who will pick you up right at Lookout Lodge Resort.
The Florida Keys are surrounded by extensive coral formations found in both the Atlantic Ocean and the Florida Bay. These coral formations house a diverse population of fish such as yellowtail snapper, mangrove snapper, grouper, king fish, cobia, shark and barracuda. Two popular charter options are drift boats and party boats where big groups of people share the cost of the charter so the price typically starts at $35 per person with more fun and value for everyone. Call the friendly staff of Lookout Lodge Resort at (305) 852-9915 to learn more about local reef-based fishing charters.
