Fishing off/under bridge in the keys

Post by Slowbra01 » Tue Oct 28, 2014 8:08 pm

Can anyone recommend a good spot to fish in the keys, preferably like under a bridge where there's shade? I don't really want to go all the way to key west. I'd like to know of a spot closer north so i don't have to drive so far south. Thanks!

We used to fish under the Card Sound Bridge on Card Sound Road connecting the mainland to Key Largo... Take Card Sound Road east off Rt 1 in Florida City...

There's a funky bar/restaurant named Alabama Jack's out that way too... I haven't been there in 10 years or so...

The Card Sound Bridge used to have a fishing pier under it but it was torn out years ago.

That's a shame... You'd think something like a fishing pier would last more than 40 years.... They just don't build fishing piers like the used too;-);=)

Thanks for the update & making me feel old...
