Munstersfishing

If you’re looking for some of the best Islamorada charters that can cater to both sportfishermen and families, you can’t go wrong with Munstersfishing. Their motto is “We do what we love, and love what we do.” Captain Dave Jones has over 30 years of fishing experience, and his goal is to show you the best charter experience possible.

You’ll be fishing from a 32’ SeaVee center console that can carry up to 4 anglers fishing without tangling lines and bumping elbows. Fully overhauled in 2019, it features the latest marine electronics and safety equipment, outriggers, downriggers, a live bait tank, and a cooler where customers can keep snacks and drinks. It comes with a 450 HP Cummins inboard engine.

The captain will take you exploring nearshore and offshore waters, as well as hotspots near reefs and wrecks. For reef trips, it usually takes 15–20 minutes to get to a good fishing spot, and for the offshore trips, it’s from 30 minutes to one hour. Depending on the bite and the package you choose, you could be reeling in Tuna, Swordfish, Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi, Wahoo, Amberjack, a variety of Snapper, and more.

The captain will provide the best Daiwa and Penn fishing gear and licenses. You’ll get to catch your own live bait on the way to the most productive fisheries. The mate will even clean your catch, so 15–20% tips for his efforts are customary.

Book a trip with Munstersfishing and create lifelong memories!
