A variety of fish can be targeted on the flats the most sought after fish being the bonefish, permit and tarpon. We target these fish by pushing the boat with a pole. this allows us to approach these fish silently or as close to silently as possible.
Key Largo Flats fishing – More like hunting than fishing
The shallow clear waters of the Key Largo flats allow you to actually see the fishing swimming in the distance and target them with your bait. You will actually cast the bait into the path of fish and see it eat it. It is very exciting fishing, and is very different to the fishing you are probably used to.
Other Fish of the flats
In addition to the prestigious fish of the flats there is a bunch of other species that can be targeted as well. Barracuda and sharks cruise the flats and can be great fun on light tackle, especially on top water lures, so even if the conditions are bad there will be fish to catch.
