Key West Offshore Fishing

Depending on the time of year you'll find it's just a short run offshore where you will find marlin, sailfish, blackfin tuna, wahoo, king mackerels and dolphin.  Key West Fishing Charters  remain good year round as the species migrate through the region. We offer trips ranging from four hours to Shark trips to overnight Dry Tortugas excursions. Let us customize the right Key West Fishing Charter for you and your group. The Pretty Work has the speed to get you to the fishing grounds quickly giving you more time to fish. We're fully equipped in top notch equipment as we're fully sponsored by Penn & Sea Striker. We'll be sure to get you to the fish! Generally we troll live bait with ballyhoo being our bait of choice. If trolling is slow then we'll switch it up and bottom fish for grouper and snapper. We're equipped with deep dropping equipment that will get us down to the bottom. We provide everything you need to fish. All you have to bring is food, drinks and…gratuity....please!

Key West Reef Wreck Fishing

Key West is surrounded by reefs & wrecks on the Atlantic side and in the Gulf of Mexico. These reefs are teeming with great tasting fishing like grouper, yellowtail snapper, cobia, amberjacks, mutton snapper, mackerel, and possibly even dolphin, wahoo, tuna & sailfish. This is a great way to get constant action all day long. On those windy days the patch reefs provide lots of protected action in the calmer waters, especially in the winter time when cold fronts passing through is a common event. Located just south of Key West is a huge barrier reef, about six miles and provides a great deal of activity and flexibility for your Key West Fishing Charter.
