Are you going to rent a car? KW is not serious DIY on the beach; in fact there ain't much beach in KW. I would echo Dan's guide suggestion...I regularly fish Simon Becker in early March if he's open...and late June through July when available...also mid october to mid november...now first week of december with no front coming down, bright sun, wind 5-15 kts you will see fish Permit Bonefish inside Tarpon mostly under 80...it would be good fishing...now for an average joe like me 6 to 8 days a year guided KW(2-4 for Permit)...he has consistently put me on Permit and on Permit that are hungry so that I go Permit fishing when I can book him. Also I regularly fish Bill Houze and Wil Benson also excellent Key West guides. They all use first class tackle if you don't have SW gear. Don't expect to hold a 6 or 7 wt on the casting deck with 10-15 kts blowing. The first week of December you have an excellent chance of booking all the best guides in the area since it's generally considered the off season.
