Gametime Fishing Charters

Want to explore the variety of fishing grounds that the Florida Keys are famous for? Make Gametime Fishing Charters your first point of call! With over a whopping 35 years of angling experience, Captain Mike Gonzalez has the local know-how to take you where the bite is hottest. From fishing the flats for Tarpon, plumbing the depths of the reefs for bottom-dwellers, or heading offshore to battle big game, you’ll be in for the adventure of a lifetime.

It’s fair to say that a passion for angling is in Capt. Mike’s blood. His family has been in the commercial fishing business since 1955, so he grew up surrounded by rods, reels, and lines. He uses the knowledge he gained during his childhood and beyond to provide a variety of first class angling trips suitable for newbies, families, and hardcore anglers – age and experience are no barrier when it comes to joining Capt. Mike on an adventure!

You’ll be traveling on Capt. Mike’s 36’ Contender center console. On board, there’s room for up to 6 anglers, making her the perfect option for the whole family, or casting off with your best fishing buddies. She’s decked out with GPS, life jackets in a variety of sizes, plenty of space for you to bring along a cooler packed with snacks and drinks, as well as outriggers to cover plenty of ground when trolling offshore.

There’s a reason that this part of Florida is known as an angler’s paradise – the incredible species on offer! Cruise the seriously shallow flats and wild backcountry for Tarpon, Snook, a variety of Snapper, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and more. Want to test your bottom fishing skills? The reefs and wrecks are home to Grouper, huge Permit, and Kingfish. Adventurous anglers can travel further offshore to come face-to-gills with Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, and other hard-fighters.

Rods, reels, bait, tackle, and your license are included – all that’s left is to come aboard Gametime Fishing Charters for an incredible angling adventure!

"I’ve been fishing for over 35 years, and was brought up by a family in the commercial fishing industry. I've loved it ever since, and now spend my time charting." Capt. Mike grew up in the Florida Keys, and it's fair to say that a passion for angling runs through his veins – his family has been in the commercial fishing business since 1955, and he was introduced to it as a child. Now, he loves using his childhood experiences to offer first-class fishing adventures for anglers of all ages and skill levels, from newbies to hardened fishermen! On top of this, he's very eager about sharing his fishing knowledge, local tips and tricks, and turning this lifelong passion into a true profession.
