The Location

The Lower Florida Keys stretching from Marathon to Key West is an expansive stretch of islands, with hundreds of miles of flats and some of the best fishing in the entire world!

We fish many locations depending on the tides, weather and fish, but always start and end our trips at Kiki’s Sandbar Bar and Grill located on Little Torch Key (mile marker 28.5). The Middle Lower Keys is a laid back residential area with a few resorts, many great places to eat, abundant wildlife and less crowded than Islamorada to the north and Key West to the south. There are many days throughout the year where we don't see another boat all day.

The most convenient place to fly into is Key West. Miami or Ft. Lauderdale generally offer more reasonable airfare and it's a scenic 130 mile drive to the lower Keys.
