Your fly rods should be rigged as best you can prior to your trip. I will have flies and tippet for you but we will only waste time at the dock rigging rods (sometimes in the dark) if you come with them still in the rod tubes.
I have rods and reels – both right and left hand retrieve – and I can bring them. If you tell me you are bringing your own please ask if I will bring some rods too if you feel you need more.
Our departure time and location will depend on the wind, tide and weather. Please call or text the night prior to our first day of fishing. My cell number is 305-360-3122 and home is 305-744-0903. I ask that you contact me to confirm our trip by 6PM regardless if you have arrived in Key West or to your lodging. We can then make a plan for the morning.
Normal meeting places will be one of the following:
City Marina in Key West – located at the corner of Palm Avenue and N. Roosevelt Blvd in Key West. There is parking available but it can be limited during the high season. Circle K and the Shell Station have drinks and some food available.
Sugarloaf Key Marina – Located next to the Sugarloaf Lodge at MM 17. Sugarloaf Marina opens at 7:30AM and closes at 6PM. The marina has snacks, drinks, cigarettes and other sundries you may need like sunscreen.
If we decide on another location I will let you know.
What should I bring for a flats fishing trip? Capt. Justin Rea
