Key West, Florida
The reef off of Key West is huge! It runs from Miami all the way to the Dry Tortugas and is loaded with life. Reef fishing is really fun and a great way to put some meat in the box for great dinners of amazing Florida Keys seafood later. Fish species such as Yellowtail snapper, mutton snapper, yellow eye snapper, vermillion snapper, mangrove snapper, black and red grouper. There are also lots of other fun surprises such as sailfish, blackfin tunas, permit, African pompano, kingfish, cero mackerel and several jack species. The options are endless and the fishing is a blast.
Reef Fishing Charters
Bottom Fishing with live bait, casting artificial lures, kite Fishing with live bait and some live bait trolling are all the ways we go reef fishing here in Key West. Depending on the fishing seasons and the fish species we are targeting as to what techniques I will use on my fishing charters. I have one of the coolest boats in Key West for reef fishing. Fast safe and very comfortable. My boat is fully equipped with the nicest fishing gear from DAIWA in the Saltiga line of rods and reels.
My 36 Ft Yellowfin Center Console
You may be surprised to learn that the ultimate predator on the reef is not the shark. It’s my 36 ft Yellowfin center console. Powered by triple Mercury v-8s I get there fast and comfortable.
Versatility is key to a productive day of fishing. Many times when I am flats fishing or backcountry fishing or even after our tarpon fishing session we can change it up and head out to the reef for some tasty treats.
I can take up to five persons reef fishing for 4, 6, or 8 hours. Bottom fishing can be tough for more than three anglers at same time, often taking turns is the result.
Trip departures depend on the day and what fish species we are targeting. I supply everything you will need for fishing as well as ice filled cooler with bottled waters and an additional cooler for our catch. I will also filet and bag your fish for you at the end of our trip. All the fish we catch belong to you, unless you want to give them to me.
