Florida Keys Reef and Wreck FishingJust a few miles off the Florida Keys lay the largest living coral reef system in the continental United States. Our reef system is huge and complex... providing us more fishing options than anywhere else in the world. We have the main "Florida Reef" stretching from Key Largo to the Dry Tortuga's. We spend many productive days fishing the edge of the reef for Sailfish, dolphin, wahoo and much more.
The Florida Keys reef system provides abundant fishing year round. Here we have many shallow patch reefs, deeper bank reefs, and tons of natural and man made wrecks scattered in between.
Patch reef fishing brings in all kinds of tasty and fun to catch fish including: Mangrove Snapper, Mutton, Yellowtail, Grouper, Mackerel, Shark and Barracuda. Patch Reef fishing is a fun option for the more laid back fishing charter. Our patch reefs are generally considered nearshore, providing great fishing in calmer seas than "offshore". Your crew will have a great time whipping the Yellowtail Snapper into a frenzy around the back of the boat. Yellowtail Snapper are a local table fare favorite, and fun to catch on light rods by kids of all ages.
Florida Keys bottom fishing on some of the deeper reefs and many wrecks in Islamorada, is a great way to spend the day as well.
The abundance of bait fish seeking shelter along these reefs and wrecks make for an action packed Florida Keys charter fishing experience! Here the bite is fast paced and unpredictable with snapper, grouper, mackerel, African pompano, amberjack, kingfish, shark and barracuda!... that next bite might just be that trophy fish you’ve been looking for!
The island of Islamorada in the Florida Keys offers some of the best sport fishing in the world! It is truly a fisherman's paradise!
