One of the best land fishing spots in the keys
I never give up my fishing spots, but today is your lucky day. The reason i am disclosing this spot is because i mainly fish on my boat. But this fishing spot in Duck key is the best shore fishing spot I’ve ever fished in the keys, and I’ve roamed it all. The type of fish I’ve caught here is hog fish, snook, mangrove snapper, permit, tarpon, and even keeper yellow tail snapper.
Located around mile marker 65 near toms harbor cut, directly in front of hawks cay resort near long key bridge, .
Florida Keys Shore Fishing
My favorite spot for night is numbered 1. At spot one, you can park literally right next to the water. What i do is back up my truck to the edge of the water and fish from my truck bed. This is a pretty comfy spot. I like to come with chum and tie it to a tree that is half in the water. Night time is the best time to catch mangrove snapper. My grandfather use to tell me stories on what time is best to fish and he always said 3 am. Indeed I’ve caught my best fish at night.
During the day i fish Spot 2, 3 and 4 hunting tarpon,permit and snook, under and along side of the bridge , never on top of the bridge. Sometimes you can see a ton of snook just bunched up along the sides, where white mangroves line the edge of the water. The bait i use at spot 1 is ballyhoo and most important thread Herring. Good luck!
