To both locals and celebrities alike, Florida Keys fishing is some of the best in the world with more than 225 species of game fish. Ernest Hemingway fished the waters of the Florida Straits between Cuba and Key West for giant blue marlin while Zane Grey applied his angling and writing skills to the inshore and backcountry of the Florida Keys, landing sailfish and giant tarpon. Charter boats and guides are available for Florida Keys deep sea fishing excursions to test angling skills against sailfish and marlin or back-country exploration to hook tarpon and bonefish. You will be able to enjoy fishing in the Florida Keys year round.
