Learn More About Bonefishing

Bonefish are constant opportunistic feeders with inferior mouths that are like a small dog always in search of a treat in and among the turtle grasses and sand flats that make up the Florida Keys backcountry waters. Small crabs and shrimp are high on this fishes diet.

With the changing of the tides, wind directions and temperatures bonefish can be found anywhere. From tailing in 8 inches of water to the channels that might be as deep as 25 feet. The deeper the fish, the easier he is to catch is a rule of thumb.

As you and your Bonefishing guide make your way across the flats where the bonefish live you will be instructed within your casting range where to place your live bait, artificial or fly. 

Florida Keys bonefish range in sized from 4 - 15 lbs and offer a fight any seasoned angler would be proud of with long burning runs and quick turns. Their unpredictable nature is what makes fishing for them so much fun. Shallow or deep, big or small these fish fight hard...

When To Go Bonefishing

The best time of the year for Bonefishing is from March through October and sometimes into November. The larger bonefish are here in the Florida Keys during the months of Sept and October offering anglers shots at fish that may reach 15 lbs. The Upper Florida Keys such as Key Largo and Islamorada bonefish can be considerably larger but with that also very smart. The Lower Keys bonefish are good size and more numerous with the Key West bonefishing being the easiest and most plentiful with catches of 10 - 15 fish in a day not uncommon.

About The Boats

Traditionally a flats boat is used to get into the super shallow (skinny) waters to present anglers with opportunities at tailing fish. This is the holy grail of bonefishing to super light tackle enthusiasts and fly fishermen.

Recently thanks to the advent of shallow water bay boats, bay boats that carry up to 4 persons have gotten in the mix offering a little more comfort and a little easier to catch bonefish that may live in 1.5 - 5 ft of water. Your choice on the fishing guide and the type of boat he may offer.
