The Variety of fish in the Florida Keys is amazing. This if because of our location having the Gulfstream on one side and the expansive seagrass meadows of Florida Bay and the Everglades National Park on the other side. These waters are so productive that a dozen species in a 4 hour trip is not uncommon. Cold weather up north pushes migrating species such as sailfish, kingfish, cobia, mackerel and jacks down this way in big numbers in winter months. Catch and release or Catch dinner...
