Offshore fishing is where bucket lists are checked! Fishing stories that you will tell for a lifetime are born in the offshore waters of the Florida Keys. Offshore fishing we primarily target Tuna, Dolphinfish (Mahi) and Sailfish depending on the time of year.
In the fall and winter we fish closer in for Sailfish and Tuna as well as Kingfish. In the Spring and Summer we fish for Mahi and Tuna further offshore. Targeting these species are a great option for larger groups and families because when multiple hookups occur at the same time it is all hands on deck! The pandemonium of everyone working together to catch as many fish as possible during multiple hookup scenarios leads to a feeling of teamwork and accomplishment when it’s done. The adrenaline rush, excitement, yelling and the laughter all makes it so much fun.
The ocean is an unpredictable place, offshore fishing in the Florida keys can also lead to catching Wahoo, Triple Tail, Cobia and much more depending on the circumstance. Every now and then something really special happens offshore, like a Blue Marlin shows up ready to give you the fight of a lifetime or a massive thousand-pound hammerhead chomps your catch in half in front of your very eyes.
Even just cruising offshore cool things can happen like pulling up to a 60ft whale shark or being followed by a playful pod of bow-riding porpoise! That is the beauty of offshore fishing, anything can happen and you get some opportunities to land a fish truly worthy of a fiberglass mount. Another advantage of offshore fishing is on the rougher days constantly being on the move reduces your chances of getting seasick versus being on the anchor rocking back and forth.
