Marquesa Key West

The Marquesas is an atoll located 22 miles west of Key West. This magical fishing mecca holds some of the best fishing in the Lower Keys for flats and fly anglers. The Marquesas also is a safe harbor for boats traveling to and from the Dry Tortugas National Park located 70 miles to the west of Key West. Mainly it's a day trip for many Key West flats fishing guides who hunt the shallows for tarpon, permit and even bonefish. In tarpon season the schools of fish that travel around the Marquesas and through the middle of Mooney Harbor are plentiful. Tarpon season runs late March through July with the most active months being April, May and June.

Sailfish in Key West

One of the best fish fights you may ever remember is a battle with an Atlantic Sailfish. Key West has plenty of them in the winter months and all year long they are caught and released here in the Keys. Sailfish jump madly in the air when hooked and are brilliant blue and purple in color when they are 'lit up'. Captains and guides here in Key West use live bait and also troll for these beautiful sailfish.

Come fish with us in the Fabulous Florida Keys!
