Full Day 8 hour trips are for the die hard customers wanting to maximize their Florida Keys fishing day. They are recommended for more advanced experienced fisherman that want to fish spots that are farther away from the dock and target larger species of fish. Some of these days we will travel over 50 miles on the water hitting different fishing spots.
Types of Fishing
Gulf Wreck Fishing for Mangrove Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Jacks, Grouper, and Goliath Grouper
Everglades Backcoutry Fishing for Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, and Trout.
Combination Fishing Trip Reef & Shark. Catch edible species like Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, and Grouper. Then sight-fish for Sharks 4-10 feet long up on the shallow water flats in 3 feet of water. This is a great option for customers wanting to catch dinner as well as some really big fish.
Usually, we start between 7:00 – 8:00 AM for our 8 hour fishing trips. Because we are planning on doing a lot during our full day trips early start times are usually a must so we don’t run out of daylight.

What Is Provided
We provide all fishing licenses, live bait, lures or flies, fishing tackle, cooler with ice for your drinks, and anything else needed to catch fish.
What You Need To Bring
Your own food and drinks, hat, polarized sunglasses, sun tan lotion, rain gear if needed, camera, and anything else you would like to bring. Please do not bring your own cooler because most likely there will not be enough room for it on the boat. If it’s a small soft cooler most of the time it can be stored in one of the hatches. If you are planning on keeping a few fish for dinner please bring bags or some way to transport it home with you.
Policy On Keeping Fish To Eat
If you would like to keep a few fish to eat that is not a problem. We would be happy to clean them for you free of charge.
Catch & Release
Even though we love to eat fish and keep a few for dinner every so often most of what we do is Catch and Release. So if you are wanting to “Limit Out” on everything you catch and fill the cooler you might want to find another operation. The species that are always considered Catch & Release with us are Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Permit, Goliath Grouper, and Sharks. These are all protected species here in the State of Florida and should be released so they can be enjoyed for future generations.
