Where To Land Fish In The Florida Keys

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.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.

My favorite spot for night is numbered 1 on the map.  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!
