Best Inshore Area?

Most interested in shallow water / structure fishing for big fish. What would be the best area of the keys to live for maximum nearby back country fishing opportunities?

    I'm content with Cudjoe. Good access from Contents to KW.

    Yeah, I'm seeing some canal front homes on the W side of Big Pine that intrigue me. I like how it's got back country, but also pretty close to Bahia Honda / 7 Mile bridge, plus obviously direct Atlantic access too.

    How difficult is navigating around the N end of BPK (Pine & Bogie Channels) in a skiff?

    Rent a place once or twice in that area and hire Piner to take you out a couple times.
    You get a chance to check out land and sea. A skiff can go just about anywhere but if you ever get a bigger boat with a T-Top or tower there are several bridges that you can't go under.
