Key West, Florida Keys & Everglades
World Angling is committed to providing the ultimate saltwater fishing experience. We specialize in all types of angling. Our experience begins where the push pole lands in the turtle grass flats and extends to the top of a kite flying above the blue waters of the Gulf Stream. We are a CREW of INDEPENDENT PROFESSIONAL GUIDES who have a love and passion for the ocean. World ANGLING books exclusively with guides who are members of the LKGA (Lower Keys Guides Association). Click HERE to see our rates for Flats, Bay Boat, & Light Tackle fishing charters.
Our targets include Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, Redfish, Snook, Barracuda, Sailfish, Dolphin, Wahoo, Cobia, Snapper, Grouper and every type of shark that swims through South Florida. We welcome experienced and novice anglers alike, and will work hard to make sure your time on the water with us is fun, safe and successful. We guide in many of the best locations for all these fish beginning in the Lower Florida Keys (Key West, the Marquesas, Sugarloaf Key, Big Pine) then North to Marathon, Islamorada, Key Largo, Biscayne Bay, and into Everglades National Park, Southwest Florida, and Naples. If you have ever wanted to hunt permit on the flats of Key West, throw flies to giant laid-up tarpon in the heart of the Everglades, target neon blue sailfish in the currents of the Gulf Stream, or chase monster mudding bonefish in Biscayne Bay, let us know and we can help make it happen. -Will Benson

GOURMET FOOD FOR LUNCH: There is nothing better then having great day fishing except if you have an epic lunch to go with it! When planning a day on the water food is always an issue. Some bring their own lunch and the Circle K Italian meat sandwich is always a last resort, but what we recommend is a little Artisan bakery called Cole’s Peace. It’s an awesome deli run by our friends and they serve up some of the best sandwiches ever to grace the cooler of a fishing boat. If you call ahead, even before they open and leave a message with what you want, they’ll have it wrapped for the cooler and your guide will be thrilled; especially the “Bear.” There is also the early morning option of Sandy’s Cafe when you need some salty bacon to go with your cafe con leche. Talk with your guide and he will help you make a decision but these are my favorites. -Capt. Will Benson
DEPOSIT / CANCELLATION POLICY: A deposit of 15% is required for every day booked. The deposit is completely refunded if your trip is cancelled due to weather or mechanical failure. If your trip is cancelled for other reasons the guide will do his best to rebook the days otherwise deposits will be forfeited. It is your responsibility to inform us of any health conditions prior to your trip. Please contact us with any booking questions you may have.
LICENSES AND LODGING: We provide all the necessary fishing licenses. Often times we are able to pick you up at your hotel/ guesthouse and drop you off at the end of the day depending on where you stay. There are a number of great places to stay depending on where you will be fishing from. If you are staying in Key West we highly recommend Key West Hideaways. They offer one-of-a-kind vacation rentals for every trip you have in mind. Wether you are coming to do serious fishing by yourself or bringing the whole family, Kevin and his staff at K.W. Hideaways will take care of everything for you. If you would like help finding a place to stay outside Key West please CONTACT US and we will help you find the ideal fishing retreat.
WHAT TO BRING:
Hat, Polarized Sunglasses, Sunblock, Rain Gear, Camera, Food and Beverages (water, ice, and cooler provided). We will provide all the tackle (rods and reels), flies, lures, and bait, but if you would like to use your own gear that’s fine too. Check out our GEAR page for recommendations and to find out what we use everyday out on the water.
