Hello, I’m Capt. Mike Wilbur and I have been guiding flyfishing and light tackle spin fishing enthusiasts since the early 1970’s in the backcountry flats of Key West, Florida and the Lower Florida Keys. After many years of guiding both beginners and ol’ salts alike, I am still as enthusiastic as ever and have lots of fun with my customers. Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit are of course the main targets, but Barracuda, Jacks, Snappers, and Redfish also provide fun and action while flats fishing in the Florida Keys. I am happy to have witnessed a dramatic rebound in our fish stocks due to concern and new laws protecting the Florida Keys Wildlife Refugee. Come on down and let me show you a great time!

Key West and the Lower Florida Keys are home to the finest shallow water flyfishing and flats fishing anywhere. We hold more world records then anywhere in the world.

Key West also has world class accommodation and restaurants, and is easily accessible by plane or car. If you need information or help with travels plans, please call me at 305-296-7201 or e-mail me at

Thanks, Capt. Mike Wilbur

    I have fished with Mike for three years and we have always been around more than enough Tarpon to make it exciting for me as an angler. As someone who enjoys the sights and sounds of the wildlife in...
