The Keys – Luxury Camping

I had done a post about camping in the Keys awhile back, but so many people have asked me specific questions on what type of campgrounds there are along the Overseas Highway.

Flat Fishing in The Keys

The Florida Keys vacation is the perfect time to try some flat fishing. Maybe you are an expert or perhaps it is something you haven’t yet tried, but either way, sight fishing the flats and shallows of the Keys and Key West can be done easily. They have many charter boats that are willing to be hired for the day on the flats. Key West is a premier destination for sight fishing anglers.

Just what are the flats? It is water that is 4 feet deep or less. It is usually covered with grass, sometimes it is in sandy areas and you will find all sizes of critters and fish here. This part of the back country is very important to the ecosystem. As the tides come and go the fish come to feed on the shallow areas and then they leave with the tide. If you are not familiar with flat fishing, you really should hire an expert to help you get through the shallow areas that sometimes look like dry islands. These areas are all over the Florida Keys around every island and channel of water. Continue reading
