Back in the day, President Harry S. Truman called this small island in the lower Florida Keys his favorite place to go fishing, and today it is still a fantastic place to drop your hook. The Florida Keys is known as one of the best spots in the world for inshore and offshore fishing, and Little Torch Key is just one of the many little islands that offer world-class fishing with professional Little Torch Key Fishing Charters. You can fish inshore in the shallows for some of the most fun fish to catch or go offshore to hook up with some of the trophies you want to brag about.
There are so many inshore flats in the Florida Keys, and in Little Torch Key, sight fishing is the #1 type of charter inshore. Your Little Torch Key Fishing Charter captain can get you right in the perfect spot to toss a fly or other bait right into a rolling Redfish, Bonefish, Snook, or Tarpon, and then it is game on. Permit is another famous fish, and the Florida Keys is one of the best Permit fishing in the world, with some of the largest found inshore. Sharks a plenty inhabit the flats. There are plenty of other fish to reel in, but these are the main draw for inshore fishing.
There is an excellent reef system in the Florida Keys, and off Little Torch Key is no exception. There are bottom feeders like Snapper and Grouper as well as reef fish like Jacks, Mackerel, Cobia, Sharks and more.
Going further offshore towards the Gulf Stream and the deep blue water is where you can troll for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, King mackerel and barracuda and at some times of the year Marlin. You can also go even further out and deep drop for some of the rarer species of Grouper and Swordfish.
There are many options for you when it comes to a Little Torch Key Fishing Charter. You can stay in the flats and backcountry, go to the reefs or go out to the Gulf Stream. If you want to stay inshore, you can book a half-day trip which is great for families or a full-day trip for those who want to get the best of what the Florida Keys offers. Going to the reef, you have similar choices, and if you want to venture well offshore, you will have to get a full-day charter. One of the beauties of a full-day charter to the deep blue is that on the way to the fishing grounds and back from them, you can troll for all kinds of fish, and some captains will plan for you to finish your day on the reefs. Your Little Torch Key Fishing Charters can be found at a few marinas on the island and they are ready to take you on the fishing trip of your dreams.
