Florida Keys Fun Fishing • 20-29 years of experience
A tradition that was started many years ago by the local Islamorada fishing guides, the “Evening Tarpon Trip“, was created to give anglers the best chances to catch the giant Silver King while drifting live bait around our world famous bridges and passes. The Tarpon is by design a nocturnal feeder and the magic hour of sunset to twilight can be an angler’s best friend when it comes to Tarpon fishing.
Nowadays with faster, more reliable boats, better navigational equipment, and heavy fishing pressure during the day, an evening trip can be used to target many different fisheries. This trip will give you the chance to spend the day on the island, get your fishing fix in and still be home in time for a late dinner. We're typically back before dark, unless you're hooked up!! Or, bring a picnic dinner and enjoy it on the water as the sun goes down! We run night tarpon trips Mid March through June and general backcountry evening/sunset trips mid March through September.
These trips can target not only Tarpon, but Sharks, Bonefish, Trout, Snappers, etc. giving the whole family a chance to fish while the majority of the crowds are off the water and the air temperature is refreshing. Throw in a couple of adult beverages and a beautiful sunset to boot and that is what vacation in the Florida Keys is all about.
Our night fishing trips are typically four hours long and are readily available starting right after the spring “time change.”
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.

Florida Keys Fun Fishing is owned and operated by Capt. Mark Johnson and his wife, Kara, and located right in the heart of Islamorada, the centerpiece of Florida Keys Fishing. Capt. Mark spent much of his childhood right here in Islamorada as a destination for his family. Oddly enough, all through the 70′s, his family stayed at the original La Siesta Resort and Marina, located at Mile Marker 80.5 ocean side, in Islamorada. “My parents loved to go boating, fishing, and snorkeling and they created endless family fun in the Florida Keys for their kids. My younger brother and I spent many a day and night as kids fishing, snorkeling and flat out exploring islands in the Florida Bay and Everglades and that created a passion that still drives me today 35 yrs later.”
