About the Lower Keys Guides Association

We are a group of conservation minded guides, independent small business owners, who are dedicated to the preservation of sport fishing in the Lower Florida Keys. Our membership comprises two styles of sport fishing; flats fishing from small skiffs and light tackle fishing from larger center console boats.

Our goal is to preserve rights and access to the fishery and to promote a style of use that is both sustainable and part of the area’s cultural heritage. We call for management practices at both the State and Federal level, that protect the resource and maintain access for sport fishermen.

As ambassadors of this amazing ecosystem, we share its wonders with visitors from around the world and understand we have a responsibility to maintain and advocate for a healthy resource both now and in the future.
