Key West, a unique place with a great charm that continues to attract lovers of sports fishing from around the world.
In Cayos you will find the most incredible international records in the world regarding sports fishing. There are 225 species of fish that inhabit these seas. This variety is what makes Key West a paradise for the sports fisherman of the sea.
In the shallows of white sands and grass bottoms we find fish such as the Macabí and the Sábalo (tarpon), the latter appreciated as the king for fly fishing. However, the tarpon can also be fished or baited. The best dates to fish for bonefish and tarpon are from April to June, for the marlin from April to October and for the sailfish from September to November and from January to March.
The north side becomes a refuge for the juvenile tarpon. Here are some excellent places for fishing for bass, Pomfret, scads, and barracudas.
On the outside of the reefs, there are perfect areas for fishing for amberjacks, buckets, sharks and other large fish.
About 20 miles south of Key West is the area of “The Wall,” with its deep waters to fish the blue and white Marlin, sailfish, dolphinfish and various types of tuna. It is an area loaded with a vast wealth of plankton and huge schools of fish that attract large predators.
