Crippen's Fly & Light Tackle Expeditions

Florida Keys & Everglades

The beautiful Florida Keys provide Anglers with many opportunities. The pristine waters of the Keys provide multiple shots at Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit. Captain Scott has spent a lot of time fun fishing and fishing tournaments from Islamorada to the Marqusas off of Key West. Nothing gets your heart pumping like a big permit tailing in a foot of crystal clear water. Throw tarpon and bonefish into the mix and it get’s no better! 


Most of the Keys trips will be from late March to end of June. We know the best places to stay, eat, and fish from the upper to lower Keys. Package trips can be set up for you including lodging, food and fishing. Please let us know in advance so we can book lodging accordingly.

The back country of the Everglades is the wildest, most untouched water left in the Sunshine State. The Everglades Fishery is something every fly and light tackle angler should experience. With good year round fishing, the Everglades area is a must. Sight fishing for big laid up snook, redfish and tarpon are all common occurneces. For those wildlife buffs, thousands of different bird speices, saltwater crocodiles, alligators, deer, and wild hogs are common sites. Lodging can be set up for you to make this an unforgettable destination.
