Many people ask me for recommendations for guides in Key West. There are some excellent guides in Key West, in fact, some of the best guides in the world operate right out of the little island.

March is an excellent month for fishing the Keys. The entire 150 mile chain of the Florida Keys offers the possibility for a Slam just about any month of the year if you are with the right guide.

I believe that March is one of the best months of the year to target a Slam with really nice fish of each specie.
