Florida Keys Flats Fishing Near Marathon Florida

Unlike most coastal areas, Tranquility Bay offers the advantage of big game fishing in Marathon just minutes, instead of hours, away. Experienced anglers and fishing novices alike enjoy Marathon's ideal location, which offers easy access to the Gulf of Mexico for backcountry and wreck fishing in the Keys.

The Florida Key's backcountry consists of hundreds of islands "Keys" scattered amidst the biologically rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Backcountry Keys, with a few exceptions, are pristine uninhabited islands.

For fishermen, this means great game fishing and an alternative option to fishing offshore in the Atlantic with Florida Keys flats fishing. Fly fishermen will enjoy fishing the nearby flats and backcountry where Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit await.

This fishing utilizes light-tackle or fly casting tackle and sight casting to a Bonefish, Permit or Tarpon, as they cruise the shallows in search of food. The captains pole the boats to the fish and you cast right to your prey. Flat fishing requires a quiet approach and a delicate cast, but is explosively fun once hooked up.

The captains love to teach you this fine art so don't be afraid to spend the day out there. We have a select group of seasoned captains ready to share with you their great love of fly fishing Florida Keys. Their years of experience here in these waters can now be yours.

You just bring a strong arm and your lunch. Our Captains will do the rest.

After your day at sea, bring your catch to Our Chef at Butterfly Café and it will be expertly prepared to your exact specifications for a memorable dinner.

These Captains book up early so make our reservations soon.
