Florida Keys Fishing

Spend Your Vacation Fishing in the FL Keys

There’s no better time to vacation in the Florida Keys. Escape the winter months for backcountry, flats, reef, wreck, and deep sea fishing in paradise. Traverse the mangrove channels for snapper or make your way to the deep sea for sailfish and mahi-mahi. If you’re feeling adventurous, try your hand at spearfishing grouper, hogfish, and more. The Florida Keys’ temperate climate provides optimal conditions for all sorts of fishing at any time of year as well as a home to an array of marine species not found elsewhere in the United States.


Also known as the sport fishing capital, Islamorada in the Upper Keys attracts anglers from all over the world. Take to the open waters this January in the annual Fish for Holly tournament benefiting charity and community initiatives. The event takes place January 7th – 8th, 2022 at Whale Harbor Marina.

Fishing in the Florida Key is made easy with many of our locations featuring an onsite marina. Whether you rent a boat or bring your own, make the most of your time with access to the FL Bay, Gulf of Mexico, or Atlantic Ocean just steps from your holiday home. Although the majority have access to dockage onsite, all of our homes are within short rides from marinas nearby.
