   In the Florida Keys, bridge fishing is very popular. There are something like 42 fishing bridges scattered along Hwy 1 from Key Largo down to Key West. These bridges are mostly part of the old Flagler Railroad bridges that have been refurbished just for fishing or walking - you won't get run over, traffic is on a separate bridge. Most have parking areas for easy access and are used night and day by all. There are clearly marked areas where you are not allowed to fish on these Florida Keys bridges, usually a boat channel underneath - please respect these areas for the safety boaters.
   It's not unusual to see a big one being hauled in by bridge fishermen as you are passing by -tide changes can bring all kinds of fish under these bridges. Bring an umbrella, coolers, lawn chair, radio - whatever you need to get comfortable.  We hope you will use the trash receptacles and help keep these bridges clean for the next group. Bring an extra trash bag yourself, if you are staying for awhile.....


Old and new 7 mile bridges in the Florida Keys   The longest bridge in the Keys is the 7 mile bridge. The old bridge was replaced in the 80's, but still remains in place. There is a 2.2 mile span from Knight's Key to The Pigeon Key that allows some fishing in the first several sections and has a nice park area as well. there is plenty of nearby parking. Bridge walking is a big pastime down here, on the old Pigeon Key bridge, you can peer over the side and see the grass bottoms and many walkers see sting rays and other assorted marine life. The scenery is spectacular on most of the bridges, especially the farther south you get. There is also a dedicated fishing bridge section on the South side of the bridge.
