Florida Keys Full Day Fishing Charters
Our most popular Florida Keys fishing trip is the full day charter. The full day fishing trip is an 8 hour trip. We typically leave the dock at 7AM - Departing from The PostCard Inn Marina at Holiday Isle, MM 84
Full day fishing charters give us the best opportunity to fish for multiple species. We will start the day stopping to catch a variety of live baitfish. This is really key to the success of our charters. We like to be prepared for any conditions and opportunities that will present themselves throughout the day.
Some of our favorite bait fish are live ballyhoos, cigar minnows, blue runners, pilchards and grunts. The great thing about fishing in the Florida Keys is that you never know what fish will decide to show up. The possibilities are endless when you are prepared with the right variety of bait and tackle. This is really where fishing with a experienced charter captain and first mate will make the difference.
We fish lines out of the riggers as well as off the transom at different depths to target multiple species of fish.
Our hard working first mate paying close attention not to miss those surprise encounters. It is not uncommon to be targeting sailfish when BAM!... we spot a few cobia in the mix!
Having the right rod for the job at the ready is crucial...grab one of those freshly caught baits and pitch the line!
This goes for dolphin, wahoo, tuna, and the occasional marlin sighting as well. Being prepared and ready for anything --at a seconds notice is the key for a very exciting day on the water.
As we progress through the day we will be in close communication with other charter boats, watching for favorable conditions along the reef. Our reef runs from Key Largo to Marathon making for world class Florida Keys offshore fishing opportunities! Our charter boat's tuna tower allows us to sight fish large areas of water. We are always looking for the right current, water color, weed lines, floating debris and birds.
