Hook & Cook: If you would like to keep a few fish for dinner that would be fine. We would gladly clean your catch free of charge.
Combination Reef & Shark Trip : During this 6 hour trip we will target species of fish that are good to eat. After we have caught enough for dinner we will head to another spot to chum up the Sharks in 3 feet of water. It’s a great way to catch dinner and some really big toothy critters.
It’s common for our anglers to catch 8-12 different species of fish while fishing on a reef in the Florida Keys. These trips are filled with lots of action and usually takes place in 10-30 feet of crystal clear water.
How We Catch Fish On The Reef: Fishing on the coral reefs in the keys is done by anchoring the boat over specific marked spots and chumming up the fish to the back of the boat. Once all the fish are eating in the chum line anglers will take their live or cut bait and toss it in the schools of fish.
