You bet. The back country flats are spectacular fishing grounds. Teeming with game fish, there is no better place on earth to fill your head with memories and stories of trophies.

For example, the shallow waters and countless mangrove islands present a great opportunity for environmental and nature photography. Here, you will experience numerous varieties of bird species and other marine life. Just some of the birds that inhabit the quiet back country are Spoonbills, Egrets, Blue Heron, Ospreys and Bald Eagles. There are Terns, Ibis and Cormorants. If you are an avid bird watcher, you’ll love the flats.

It’s always great to see a hard-core fisherman come to Key West from northern waters, all full of energy, and anticipation, and watch him (or her,) slowly “unwind” once the peacefulness of it all comes “over them.”

It’s the back country… the flats of Key West. It does it to you every time. It’s no wonder that anglers come back again, and again.
