Keys Reef & Wreck Fishing


Fishing the wrecks & reef of the Florida Keys is an exciting & rewarding fishing experience



The Wrecks

Scattered all over the Florida Keys you'll find hundreds of wrecks...some in shallow water and some in deep water with the largest concentration off of Key West out to the Dry Tortugas. Some of these wrecks were sunk on purpose while others found their fate in storms. The deeper wrecks are fished from 100'-250' and tend to hold the larger, loner fish. The shallower wrecks hold large amounts of schooling fish. All of them are worth visiting for the fishing and adventure offering a mixed bag of fish such as Amber Jacks, Groupers, Cobia, Snappers, Permit, Barracudas, Sharks, Kingfish, Goliath Groupers, Groupers and More.


The Reefs

The only living coral reefs in the continental US are located right here in the Florida Keys. These reefs stretch from Miami all the way past the Dry Tortugas holding vast amounts of different species of fish. Reef Fishing in the Keys presents all sorts of action as it is not uncommon to catch 20 different species of fish in one day! You can fish shallow on patch reefs in 15-35 feet of water or head to 80-130 feet for some mid-size reefs. For the venturesome explore depths up to 700 feet using electric reels for deep dropping. When fishing the reefs you'll find bottom fish such as Groupers & Snappers along wtih some Pelagic species like Kingfish, Mackerel, Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish, Dolphin and more.
