Reef Fishing Key West

The Key West reef is just 5 miles offshore. Thats pretty close. We take advantage of that every chance we get on board the nicest boats in Key west. to catch many different types of reef species such as grouper, snapper, sailfish, tuna, kingfish and mackerel.

Our center console fishing boats are the most versatile and comfortable way to fish the reef off Key West.

A great trip for lots of action and table fare or a technical trip for targeted sport fishing species such as sailfish. Easily transition to a Deep Sea Fishing charter.

A mess of yellowtail snappers caught with Dream Catcher Charters on the reef in Key West. We offer 4, 6, and 8 hour private charter fishing trips to the reef here off of Key West for 1-6 anglers. So close and so rewarding we fish the patch reefs, harbor and the outer reef to provide our clients with a fun no seas sick affordable day of reef fishing. We use light tackle spin fishing gear to catch the fish. Live bait and artificial lures as well as jigs and soft baits are part of our program. We also troll for grouper with lipped plugs and put some color in your cooler. This trip is a blast for everyone of any skill level.

The "Too Intense" is designed for reef fishing to its core. Able to get out there comfortably on the 'not so nice' days and still offer a nice day of fishing to our clients. The wreck and reef option is very easy to do on board the "Too Intense".

Option 2 - We use our bay boats for this trip for groups of 4 or less on days where the weather will allow.

Fishing the reef with our bay boats offers our anglers a tremendous amount of flexibility. If the winds are up we can adjust our trip to go fishing the backcountry waters and still have a fun day of fishing for a limited number of food fish as well as many other species and still have a great day on the water.
