Escape to the Keys

In the February issue of Florida Sportsman magazine.

Year round, Florida Keys bridges offer excellent fishing opportunities; it’s always a great time to head on down for an inexpensive fishing vacation. However, with over 40 Keys bridges, figuring out where and when to get out the gear, what tackle to bring, and what to target can be a challenge.

In the February issue of Florida Sportsman magazine, feature writer Chris Collins tells about making a one-night trip to fish Florida Keys bridges in search of good fish and good times. You’ll find all you need to know in preparation to get lines wet, from the latest shoreline license requirements to popular fishing hotspots from the upper to lower keys:

“The Florida Keys offers a world-class atmosphere that even the most diehard angler can never completely absorb,” writes Collins. “It is a paradise for fishermen, yet many Floridians forget that it’s right out our backdoor.”
