Key West Light Tackle Fishing Guides / Key West Fishing Charters

Light Tackle Fishing

Even though Key west is famous for it's deep sea and offshore fishing, if you're the type that craves more fast paced action then Key West's light tackle sport fishing will be the perfect match for you.

The lower Key's offers some of the best light tackle sport fishing there is.   If kids are involved we certainly recommend you skip the deep sea charters and opt for one of the more action packed light tackle charters.

The area offers some of the best light tackle action including tarpon, bonefish, permit, snapper and the tasty grouper.  Key West's reputation of world class light tackle fishing is well deserved.

We have assembled a list of top notch light tackle fishing guides and charter boats that will provide you with the expertise to keep your rod bent continuously.    Most of the charters will offer a 4, 6 or 8 hour rate option.

With Gulfsteam you can spend a day fishing for a fraction of the cost of a private charter by sharing the cost with other people.    Instead of spending $800 for a fishing trip you will only pay $58.50 for a 6 hour excursion if you book on line with them.
