Lower Keys - Key West

At the end of the island chain is the Lower Keys and Key West. Being the foothills of the Appalachian mountains the islands lie in a north to south direction. To north lies the Gulf of Mexico and its numerous wreck fishing hot spots. These wrecks offer constant action for cobia, snapper, permit and monster goliath grouper. The flats of the lower keys offer the world's largest permit as well as sight fishing for tarpon and bonefish. As you travel to the west of Key West you first come across the Marquesas a shallow water atoll packed with shallow water gamefish. Further to the West is the The Dry Tortugas and Fort Jefferson National park. The fort is constructed of 16 million bricks and where Dr Samual Mudd was once imprisoned. The reefs, wrecks and offshore waters of the lower florida keys and key west offer the angling opportunities of a life time.
