Marquesas Keys Fishing

Permit fishing
There are some monster Permit in The Marquesas Keys.

Marquesas Keys Fishing

30 miles West of Key West is the Marquesas Keys. A circular chain of islands that holds a bounty of fishing both in shore and offshore. Year round the fishing is great in the Marquesas Keys, weather permitting.

My bay boats and flats boats are specially built and equipped to fish the Marquesas Keys any day of the week. There are few fishing guides that have spent more time out in the Marquesas than myself over the past 30 years.

As any place, the Marquesas fishing changes from month to month, moon phases and tide changes. The flats fishing is amazing with some of the best permit fishing in the world both on the flats and the shallow water wrecks. Tarpon are also a main target with cobia and bonefish. 


The Flats Fishing

The flats fishing in the Marqusas is truly amazing. On a good day of fishing an angler can expect to see all the characters of the Key West Grand Slam with lots of bonefish, permit, and tarpon. The bonefish are scarce in the winter time but the permit fishing stays strong, typically we can get shots at tarpon all year long, even in the winter on the warmer days. There is always a good tide inside or outside the Marquesas Keys to keep an angler flats fishing all day long.

Light Tackle Fishing On Bay Boat

Year round our bay boats are able to show folks a great time in the Marquesas Keys. In many cases using the bay boats can open up many more species of fish to catch in a day I call it the All In Wonder day of fishing. A trip where we fish as many different ways for as many different species as possible.  Here we can catch permit, tarpon and bonefish along with a slew of other species especially in the winter time. Trout, Redfish, jacks, sharks, blue fish and cobia are all there and ready to eat. A great way to go fishing in the Marquesas Keys.

My Marquesas Keys Fishing Charters

I will take up to two persons flats fishing for 8 hours in the marquesas. Trip departures depend on the day, moon and tide phases and what fish species we are targeting. I supply everything you will need for fishing as well as ice filled cooler with bottled waters. If we are using fly fishing gear, only one angler can be fishing at a time. We will decide when you call, depending on the time of the year, your needs in a boat and the targeted species you would like to pursue whether we will use  my technical poling skiff or my Yellowfin bay boat. IF… You want to bring 3 or 4 anglers I can help with that as well.
