Overview

Florida Keys & Key West flats/backcountry fishing charters with Captain Luke Kelly. Key Flat Charters is independently owned and operated by myself, I offer a professional, patient, and easy-going charter fishing service with guaranteed results. I have lived in the Lower Florida Keys my entire life, and I invite all skill level anglers. Specializing in fly fishing, or light-tackle spin fishing. Sight-fishing shallow water for hard pulling gamefish such as tarpon, permit, bonefish, barracuda, jacks, and shark. All fish are caught and released (excluding mangrove snapper). Snapper can be filleted and brought to a local restaurant for your dining pleasure if so desired. Thanks for checkin it out!
