Wreck and Reef Light Tackle Fishing Charters

Fast paced excitement fishing on the reefs and the wrecks off of Key West. Target food fish such as grouper and snapper along with shots at dolphin, sailfish, kingfish and more. Up for a challenge? Try catching one of our hard pulling amber jacks off of a wreck or catching an African pompano.

You can do all these things and more. With the range and speed of our 30 - 40ft light tackle boat fleet we can cover some serious ground for you to get to the fish that not many people fish for. A true, what you see on TV experience, not for the land lubber.

The Wrecks And Reef Light Tackle Fishing

We call it that because quite frankly we don't know what else to call it. This trip is SO customizable for the seasons at hand, the desires of the client and the depth of the wallet.

With this fishing charter we can fish so many areas that will entertain even the most hard core angler with nice sized fish. Fill the box with fillets of nice grouper and snapper. Go live baiting for sailfish, wahoo and tuna. Deep drop for some nice snowy groupers, yellow edge grouper and snappers. You can even head out to the Gulf Of Mexico and fish the blackfin tunas behind the shrimp boats and then head to the towers and see what is in store out there in the way of permit, amber jacks, grouper and snapper. Fish the Dry Tortugas waters for some incredible grouper and snapper fishing.

Its all sounds like a great time but it comes with a cost. Due to the fuel burned and the distance covered these trips are not cheap and we will only sell the long distance ones on a 8 hour day.
