Key West Deep Sea & Offshore Fishing
The open Atlantic Ocean waters to the east of Key West have been renowned internationally for trophy big game Key West Offshore Fishing since the 1930s, when the great writer and avid fisherman Ernest Hemingway began to chronicle his Key West Offshore Fishing adventures in magazine articles and books. Today, our Key West Offshore Fishing Captains are masters of these waters, and the legendary fishing reported by Hemingway continues as Key West Fishing Charters hook fishermen up with some of the world’s best Deep Sea Fishing.
The Atlantic Ocean off of Key West is home to many migratory species of game fish, and Florida Deep Sea Fishing opportunities change according to the season and the varying water conditions. The Atlantic Blue Marlin is the most famous of the Florida offshore billfish. Females of this species can reach lengths of 16 feet and top 1000 lbs. in weight. Sailfish are abundant as well, and Key West has been home to the World Sailfish Championship since 2003. This tournament takes place in April every year, and is the world’s richest sail fishing competition, with over 10 million dollars in prize money paid out. When conditions are right, a Florida Deep Sea angler might hook 20 sailfish in a day.
Other popular Key West Offshore Fishing species include Barracuda, Blackfin Tuna, Kingfish, Mahi-Mahi, and Wahoo. Deep-water bait fishing over wrecks and reefs can produce giant Goliath Groupers, Yellowtail and Red Snapper, and Sharks. This is why Key West Deep Sea fishing is so exciting – so many different species may be caught that you never know what the next hit might bring.
With so many Key West Offshore Fishing opportunities available, our Key West Charter Fishing Captains are on the water nearly every day. They are expert Deep Sea Fishing Guides, and they combine time, location, and technique to help you catch fish. Trolling with lures or bait, live-bait casting or drop-fishing, casting surface plugs and lures, and kite fishing are some of the proven ways to bring Deep Sea Game Fish on the boat. Along with using the newest electronic fish finding technology, your Key West Deep Sea Fishing Captain will search the sea for color changes in the water, diving and feeding birds, floating debris, rip currents, and weed lines. You can join in the hunt and the excitement by helping your captain, and a good pair of binoculars is recommended both for finding fish and enjoying the sight of birds, dolphins, turtles, and other marine life.
All of our Key West Offshore Fishing Boats are well-equipped for your party’s comfort. Clean restrooms, comfortable seating, plenty of cooler space for cold drinks and lunches, and all of the bait and tackle needed will be available.
