with Captain Tad Burke




Welcome to the Florida Keys!

The locals often say the Keys are the closest country to the United States. Spend a little time here and you'll know what they're talking about! The Florida Keys provide the angler with fishing access to many of the species found in more remote parts of the world without giving up the comforts of home. Bonefish, tarpon, snook, redfish, and permit are all within easy reach!

While famous for the beauty of its water, the Florida Keys offer a wide array of recreational opportunity and are one of the top destinations in the world for bird watching. Not only do many birds call the Florida Keys home, many others travel through on their spring and fall migratory routes. Where else do ospreys nest along the road while frigatebirds soar overhead?

He knows how to bring out the best in beginners, and at the same time is a proven tournament winner with the skills to help expert anglers step up their game. Capt.
