There are so many fishing tournaments in Key West throughout the year. And there should be, since we are the fishing capital of the world! Key West has world class fishing, from inshore flats fishing for species like bonefish, permit, and tarpon, to offshore monsters like marlin, kingfish, dolphin, and sailfish. So, if you are like me and enjoy fishing, why not take part in a tournament? Or, you can always go to the weigh ins which are exciting too, and free to enjoy! Check out this list of Fishing Tournaments for the year and start making your fishing plans now!
