August 30th 2014 – Backcountry fishing is really the place to be here in the Florida Keys to get your fish on!

Backcountry fishing

Always calm clear and lots of fun to fish. The backcountry of the Florida Keys and Key West

With higher winds developing offshore during the day and sea conditions making the trek to go far enough offshore to catch a nice size dolphin or summer time bill fish, backcountry fishing is your best bet throughout the Florida Keys. Calm, clear and fun.

Fun catching a large assortment of fish that range in size from 1 – 300 lbs.. Yes I said 300 lbs. We have some nice sized snappers going 1 lb and some sharks and goliath groupers hiding about in the backcountry waters that can go in Excess of 300 lbs. Latch on to one of these guys and have a memorable experience that will last a life time.

Backcountry fishing this time of the year is a great way to enjoy a 4 or 6 hour day on the water. We are catching permit, bonefish, tarpon, redfish, trout, snapper, snook, shark and Huge Goliath groupers. The redfish and snook are an upper Keys species for Islamorada and Key Largo. The permit bonefish and tarpon are a Key West and lower Keys species. Everything else anglers will find great shots at all of them throughout the Florida Keys.

Dream Catcher Charters in Key West is reporting fun days with 15 species of fish caught on 6 hour trips using light tackle.

Backcountry fishing is a blast. Take as many as 4 anglers on board state of the art bay boats that make awesome stable fishing platforms. Use light tackle and have a ball just whacking fish after fish or target a trophy and make some incredible memories.

Private backcountry fishing charters start at $425.00 for 2 anglers. More anglers are an extra per person charge. Its a great day of fishing for all ages and skill levels and we promise not to make you sick.
