No matter where you choose to fish between South Florida and the Keys, you will not be disappointed.

There are so many options in the areas I fish, from Flamingo, Chokoloskee, Everglades National Park, Biscayne Bay, nighttime in Miami and the Keys, you can’t go wrong. Even if there are high winds or tough weather conditions, my experience and versatility will enable you to have the best shot you can.
As for the fish, Flamingo and Chokoloskee house quite an impressive list: tarpon, snook, redfish, trout, bonefish, permit, tripletail, black drum, largemouth bass, cobia, mackeral, mangrove snapper, goliath grouper, gag grouper, barracudas, ladyfish, jack crevalle and a wide variety of sharks. Fishing either of these places is a great choice for the advanced or beginner angler due to the wide variety of fish and there are excellent opportunities for both live bait and fly fishing.
These two places are a couple of my favorite places to fish due to the variety of fish and wildlife and the lack of other people. Flamingo is located two hours southwest of Miami. Chokoloskee is one and a half hours west of Miami. Both of these places are well worth the drive. The bird life and other wildlife alone in these destinations is amazing. On an average day fishing out of either place you might see ospreys, roseate spoonbills, falcons, flamingos, bald eagles, herons, egrets, owls, brown pelicans and white pelicans. From a wildlife standpoint you might see deer, wild boars, raccoons, rattlesnakes, bobcats, manatees, dolphins, alligators, giant sea turtles and crocodiles.
