Key West Bonefish Charters

Lower Keys and Key West Bonefishing Charters

Bonefish (aka “ghosts of the flats”) are one of the most sought after shallow water & flats species on the planet! And lucky for us, our backyard in the Lower Florida Keys is home to good numbers of bonefish!

In fact, bonefish can be caught in the backcountry and ocean-side flats of the Lower Keys and Key West year-round on live bait, artificial lures and fly!

Best Time of Year to Catch Bonefish in Key West and the Lower Keys

Bonefish can be caught all year long in Key West and the lower Florida Keys backcountry. However, these silver bullets do prefer the warmer months from March through July when water temperatures are at their warmest.

That being said, some of the largest bonefish of the year are caught in the fall months, with October being especially productive for big “bones”!

Bonefish are typically target on the flats, where our Hell’s Bay Boatworks skiff excels at putting anglers on wary fish cruising or tailing the shallows!

We target these fish with live bait, artificial lures and when conditions are right – they can be caught on fly as well!
