Backcountry Fishing Key West

The most popular fishing charter in Key West. Always calm, clear and fun.

The backcountry consists of many small to fairly large mangrove islands holding the delicate ecosystem of the Key West shallows and flats in its hands.

Always protected from the winds and the waves this has become a popularly chosen fishing charter for many of our anglers visiting Key West who want high volume of catch matched with incredible scenery without getting seasick.
