Florida Keys Flats Fishing Charters & Guide Service



Sight-Fishing the Florida Keys Flats & Backcountry

A unique catch & release fishing resource, the nearshore waters of the Florida Keys are home to the official Inshore Grand Slam. Targeting tarpon, permit, and bonefish in the Lower Florida Keys will take you to the iconic natural views the Florida Keys are known for. Fly-fishing, or light-tackle spin fishing, Key Flat Charters will take you there!

“Highly recommended guide”

We have visited the Keys for the past few years and Flyfished for Tarpon with Capt Luke for a week each time. We make the long trip from Scotland so finding a great guide is vital to our experience.

Luke has spent all his life fishing in the Keys this shows in his passion and knowledge of the area. His service is first class- always early at the launch, his boat tidy and well maintained with a shiny new 115 Evinrude on the business end.

In 2010 I had what has been the best days fishing of my life with Capt Luke, landing 5 Tarpon out of 8 hooked all before 11 am!

“Excellent Guide”

I have fished with Capt. Luke Kelly and Key Flat Charters for nearly 5 years now and it is hard to see myself fishing with any other guide in the entire Florida Keys. If you asked why I would probably sum it up in two main reasons:

  1. 1) He is a Florida Keys native that grew up fishing the area.

  1. 2) He is a nice guy that is proud of the business he has built.

I hope you are able to get on the water and experience the world class fishing in the lower keys. If so I strongly recommend Capt. Luke Kelly and Key Flat Charters.

“The Very Best of Key West.”

I have fished all over the world with many guides and Luke Kelly is one of the very best I have ever fished with. My favorite type of fishing is for Permit and Luke is an expert, he will get you on the fish.

On one trip in particular we caught Permit in the morning, Bonefish in the middle of the day and against strong odds he found Tarpon in the afternoon.

On another trip my young son was interested in snapper fishing, Luke got on the fish and it was incredible catching a fish on almost every cast. I recommend Luke Kelly 100%
