Casey Key is a spectacularly lush barrier island of soft, white sandy beaches situated directly on the Gulf of Mexico in Nokomis, Florida. Known for its “old Florida” charm, Casey Key is located toward the southern end of Sarasota County and it’s shoreline stretches over seven miles in length. The majority of this barrier island paradise is a conservation district that was established in the early 1970′s by the Florida State Legislature. On the Gulf side, Casey key is a breathtaking expanse of pristine beach directly on the Gulf of Mexico. For a surf fisher, the island offers an incredible array of fish including snook, redfish, jack, pompano, and in the right season tarpon, often less than a hundred yards off the beach.
On the bay side, Casey Key is bordered by the intracoastal waterway leading to the Venice Inlet and the Gulf of Mexico.
