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!

Captain Luke Kelly had us on fish and kept us on fish for two strait days. He was extremely patient which is really saying something. My dad and I are not exactly accomplished anglers. Nonetheless, we were rewarded with the permit of a lifetime and a great experience. He fills up fast so book him if you can get him.

My wife and I went on our first guided salt water fishing trip with Luke, and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. I really wanted to catch fish on the fly rod, and despite the wind and my casting misadventures, Luke never became frustrated with me, and kept encouraging me to keep at it, and kept giving me more chances...

Captain Luke is an outstanding guide. We were in key west for our honeymoon and my wife gets sea sick easy so we picked flats fishing. If you are in key west it is well worth the trip up to sugarloaf key for a relaxing day of flats fishing. We booked a 6 hr trip and started the day landing... More

He knows the area well and move you around to different locations. Capt. Luke works hard to find the fish you want to target. You can tell he enjoys what does, he does his homework before trip, checking tides, currents, sets a meeting time and point that would ensure a great outing. He gives great advice on fishing the flats... More

My friend and I used Luke on a beautiful November day. Just being out on the flats was a memorable experience. It was our first time fishing on the flats and his laid back personality totally took all of the pressure off. I landed a jack and a bonefish and had a blast. He had us on permit also, but... More

I see many reviews from 1st time reviewers and wanted to add my experience. I've used Luke several times in the last 3 years. 1st time with my daughter, both of us have never fished the flats, Luke put us on big tarpon and sharks. Truely a trip of a life time. He was patient without being overbearing or condescending.Not... More

I researched really good before I chose Key Flat charters for my guide. I got to fish 4 days on the flats and loved every minute! I am an avid fisherman from the north shore near... More

Whether you know everything to know about flats fishing or don't have the slightest clue, you'll not only catch a lot of fish with Capt. Luke, but you'll have one of the best times you could ever imagine on the water. My family and I have been traveling to the keys for around 14 years and have fished with all... More
