What You Can Expect

Offshore fishing in the Florida Keys represents a wide variety of fishing styles, but it typically means fishing off anchor with the motors running. It can involve kite fishing, sight fishing, trolling, or deep dropping. The time of year, length of your trip and fishing conditions all play a role in what we might target on your offshore trip.

We typically target Dolphin Fish (Mahi) in the Spring and Summer, Wahoo in the Fall and Winter, Sailfish in the Winter and Spring, and Blackfin Tuna year-round. Deep dropping in depths from 600-1500 feet can lead to catching Snowy Grouper, Tilefish, Queen Snapper and Swordfish when conditions are right.

Wreck Fishing Summary

Trip Lengths: 4, 6, and 8-hour trips available.
(Can be combined with reef and offshore trips)

Our Reef Boats: Island Hopper, Bertram, Viking

Distance: After fishing the reef, or on our way offshore, we can bottom fish with live bait in depths of 100 to 300-feet of water for a variety of strong fighting species. The wrecks we fish are typically 5-7 miles from land, but some are a little closer just off the reef. During the spring months Wreck fishing also allows you the opportunity to sport fish for permit, which offer a really fun fight.

Wreck Fishing

What You Can Expect

Wreck fishing in the Florida Keys is a type of offshore fishing that focuses on sunken boats, airplanes and rubble on the bottom of the ocean.  These artificial reefs are home to many large fish. Wreck fishing involves drifting near these structures with cut or live bait near the ocean floor.

Wreck fishing can yield large Mutton Snapper over 20lbs! We also often catch Amberjack that can weigh anywhere from 50-100lbs and are one of the hardest fighting fish you will ever encounter.  Depending on the time of year and conditions Permit, African Pompano, Black Grouper, Cobia, Kingfish, Sharks and even Sailfish are all possibilities when fishing on wrecks.

Reef Fishing Summary

Trip Length: 4, 6, and 8-hour trips available.
(can combine with offshore/wreck trips)

Our Reef Boats: Island Hopper, Bertram, Viking

Distance: Our Reef trips take you 3-5 miles out on the lively coral reef of the Atlantic. Reef trips often include fishing for Snapper, Grouper and Shark. Kite-Fishing on the reef occurs in the Winter when conditions allow which often yield Mackerel or Sailfish bites.

Mangrove Snapper

What You Can Expect

Reef fishing in the Keys varies depending on the time of year, but in all scenarios it means fishing on the anchor with the motors off. It can include chumming, drifting lines back, bottom fishing, or even kite fishing. Reef fishing is a great option for families and novices due to the smaller fish offered, and the shorter travel times involved.

Factors that will dictate the type of reef fishing during your trip are the season, weather, and direction of current. Reef trips usually include fishing for Snapper such as Yellowtail, Mangrove, and Mutton. In the winter, Reef Trips also include catching various Mackerel such as Spanish, Cero and King. Barracuda and Shark are usually around and we can catch those as well.
