Work is taking me to Key West for three weeks at the end of September/ early October. My schedule won't allow for a day of guided fishing so I'll be trying to figure it out on my own in the late afternoon and evenings. Have any of you fished Key West with or without a guide? Any tips for a self-guided adventure?

I wish I had better news, but that is one place I have been where I think DIY is a long shot. I camped for 4 days with a kayak and didn’t see a fish. Broke down and hired a guide for 2 hours and got tarpon shots. I think there is so much traffic down there that you need some help or lots of time. Other opinions may vary... i’d try to find the time to go with a guide.

Thanks. That's kind of what I've gathered through some Google searches too.
