Florida Keys summertime (June – September) fishing is all about fishing deeper waters because the water temperatures are so high.  We often see water temperatures of 88 degrees offshore to over 92 degrees on the shallow water flats.  During these hotter months we recommend fishing offshore trips for Mahi Mahi and Tuna.  Most of these trips are on the larger 36′ boat because we fish anywhere from 6- 30 miles offshore to find the large schools of fish.  These offshore  trips are a minimum of 6 hours if not 8 so we are successful at catching fish.

Offshore Fishing Species Info: Mahi Mahi AKA -Dorado or Dolphin fish.  Blackfin Tuna, Bonitas, and Jacks.

Offshore Trips:  6 or 8 hour charters (8 is recommended)

Gear Used : Light Tackle Spinning rods, Rigged Ballyhoo, Live Bait, Lures, Fly Fishing Flies

 

Summertime Reef Fishing for Mangrove Snapper is another option if you are only wanting a 4 or 6 hour fishing trip.  During the summer months of June – August large Schools of Mangrove Snapper can be found on the reef.

Gear Used : Light Tackle Spinning rods 10 – 20 lb line, live bait, cut bait

How : Anchored on the reef, 20-60 ft of water, chumming.
