Key West Backcountry Fishing Guides

Key West Backcountry Fishing Guides

Fishing is a favorite past time during vacation, and this is the reason why Key West backcountry fishing guides are so popular. When you book a private charter with BackCountry Key West Charters, you rent the whole boat getting the full attention of our crew.

What do I need to go fishing for the first time?

First thing you will need is a license, then the rods, reels, lines, boobers, and a lot of luck. You will also need to learn some fishing techniques, and how to make a knot or how to fix the bait in the hook.

Before you proceed with buying all this, will be useful to decide where do you want to go fishing and what kind of catch you are targeting. It is not the same thing to fish on a river with deep-sea fishing, so your tackle will be different. If, instead, you want to get rid of all this hassle and to enjoy your vacation, just search for the Key West backcountry fishing guides. We will provide you everything, including the permits; you only have to bring a big smile and to be ready for fun!

Choosing a fishing charter in the Keys

Planning a family fishing trip may be a little bit disorienting with so many available offers. You would like to make sure that you spent your money wisely, and that you will have a good time and a good catch. There are some simple steps you can take for this:

  • Decide what kind of experience you would like to have – while in Key West you can go deep-sea fishing fighting the waves and the big fish. Alternatively, you can ride smooth waters in the flats and backcountry for a reasonable catch.
  • Set a budget for the trip – private and shared charters are available at different cost. The primary advantage of a private tour is that you will get the full attention of the captain and the crew. In a shared trip also the crew’s focus will be divided between participants.
  • Research – you can check online or with your hotel receptionist. It will be useful to get documented and become familiarized with the boat size and the duration of the tour, as the prices may vary depending on these factors. Another great source of information comes from the locals who can guide you with the best trips.
  • Meet with the captain – this is probably the most crucial step. Before your trip, you may want to make sure that you have good chemistry with the crew and that you like the boat.

The last step will be, of course, to book your trip with the Key West backcountry fishing guides and enjoy it!
