provides a rush like no other! Just off shore of the Florida
Keys, the gulf stream flows with an ever
changing population of highly sought after
game fish. Throughout the seasons sailfish, mahi mahi (dolphin fish), marlin, tuna,
kingfish, and wahoo, (just to name a few)
migrate here to feed and offer fishermen the
thrill of a lifetime!
Basically Florida Keys Offshore
fishing, or deep sea fishing, is best described as any fishing
done while the boat is in motion. The depths that we fish at
will range sometimes dramatically depending on the fish we
Off the shores of Islamorada lie
several seamounts, which are basically underwater
mountainous formations. As the sea currents rush against
these formations huge schools of bait fish are trapped
attracting predators - the highly sought after sport fish we
are looking for! These "humps" as we call them provide
dependable deep sea action unlike any fishing grounds in the
|Two of the largest fishing humps are the Islamorada Hump and the 409 Hump, ranging from 200Ft-400Ft. Here we look for large flocks of diving birds, and fish
crashing. Then you know you are in for an exciting
day of fishing in the Florida Keys.
In the spring and summer
dolphin are plentiful from the Islamorada hump to the west hump and almost anywhere
in between, including along the reef's edge. We watch
carefully for diving frigate birds and floating debris. Once
we zero in on the dolphin, these magnificently colorful fish

quite like getting into a school of mahi-mahi's and
watching them fly through the crystal clear water
after your bait.
Once in a school you can expect lots
of excitement on deck as several lines hook up at once.
Dolphin can be quite acrobatic putting on a spectacular
show. We catch a good many Wahoo while dolphin and tuna fishing as well. There are also many varieties of snapper to be caught here.
In the winter months we target the big
Black Fin Tuna on the Islamorada hump trolling live bait and
pitching pilchards. Smaller Blackfins make for great bait to
catch those monster AJ's (amberjack). This is a fight you
won't soon forget! The humps are also a great place to spot
We always have a pitch rod ready
should a sailfish or marlin decide to show up for feeding
time. We will also have a rod rigged with a wire leader
ready, fishing the humps for wahoo. With all the many
different fishing opportunities while offshore fishing, it
takes an experienced captain and a hard working first mate,
who have prepared the right rods for the job. Speed and know
how is key if you don't want to miss big fish guest
appearances. While fishing for targeted species on your
Florida Keys fishing charter we know what is likely to show
up and aim to be ready!

Sailfish takes us to the reef's edge.... typically best from November through March. The fishing opportunities along the
reef are exceptional most days.
The magic of Florida Keys Offshore
fishing is that all these species, and more, live and pass
through our waters year round. We know when to target them
by season, and by various techniques. Even
the most seasoned anglers will be surprised by what we will
find on any given day.
