Fishing in Big Pine Key

With the waters of the Gulf kissing the shores on one side, and the wilderness of the Atlantic on the other, it’s easy to see what makes the Keys unique. And fishing in Big Pine Key is no exception. Small and beautiful, this little town will give you the best of both worlds – a relaxing day and exciting fishing!

You can fish for just about anything in these waters. Inshore you’ll see Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Pompano – to name a few. There’s also big Snapper and Grouper lurking in the reefs, waiting to take your bait. Head a bit further offshore, and you’ll be rewarded with trophy Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and of course, Marlin.

If you’re looking for an introduction to the area, or just want to take your family out for a day of fun, a half day inshore trip is a great choice. However, if you want to test the waters for some big pelagics, think about booking a full day or an extended full day trip as you’ll need more time to get to the fishing grounds.

There are fishing charters everywhere you look in Big Pine Island! Really, it’s a small town surrounded by water, so just head to the nearest waterway, and chances are there’s a charter waiting there. Just choose between the Gulf and the Atlantic and head over to that side of the island.

Rules & Regulations

Hop aboard a Big Pine Key fishing charter, and you won’t have to worry about fishing licenses, as you’ll be covered by the captain. There are regulations when it comes to certain fish species, so book your trip with a reputable captain who’ll keep you in the loop and make sure you’re fishing within the law.

Big Pine Key Fishing Seasons

January

Trout seem to never let an angler down around Florida. You can also get Snook around the inshore shallows. Offshore waters can reward you with Tuna, Mackerel, Sailfish, and Swordfish.

February

Now you have a solid offer of Trout, Permit, some Reds, and Snook inshore. Further out, you can get Mangrove Snapper, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Yellowtail Snapper, and Bills.

March

Tarpon time is upon us. Head to the flats to get them. Bonefish are also on the chew. Pre-spawning Permit are feisty. Also, Redfish are strong and can be massive. Inshore is the place to be.

April

The weather’s improving and fishing’s getting better. You can get Bonefish inshore, as well as Permit and Jack Crevalle, while offshore there are Amberjack, Sailfish, Swordfish, and other big catches.

May

Mangrove Snapper is available, but you can also get bags full of Permit, Bonefish, and Cobia. Out there, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, Kingfish, Yellowfin Tuna, and Wahoo are rising in numbers.

June

Tarpon are biting like crazy. Hire a boat and head out to the bridges and flats to make your day even better. Offshore waters boast Amberjack, Billfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, and you can get Grouper around reefs.

July

The hot fishing action continues. If you look inshore, you can still get Tarpon, Permit, and some Cobia. Offshore, the fish are biting heavily. Some Sailfish, many Swordfish, Tuna, and Wahoo are yours to claim.

August

The summer break is still on, and the fishing is on par with the heat. Go on an offshore trip and get yourself strong Amberjack, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, some Tuna, and more.

September

Kids go back to school, but the fish are going nowhere. In inshore waterways you can catch Permit, Reds, Trout, Bonefish, whereas an offshore trip can get you a Marlin, an occasional Tuna, Wahoo, and some other members of the Bill family.

October

As the heat drops, Snook rise in number, here to stay until February. The offshore waters remain productive and you can get some Kings, Tuna, Wahoo, and Swordfish. Head to the reefs for some Grouper and Snapper.

November

Kids like Lemon and Blacktip Shark and this is a good time to get them. Cobia are in solid numbers, as are Trout and Snook. Offshore, Tuna numbers are improving.

December

Barracuda are in their prime time. Go and get them. Don’t miss out on Wahoo. They are now as strong as ever and put up an excellent fight. Big Pine Swordfish are still there, ready for some rod-bending action.

Start taking motion sickness medicine a couple of days prior to a fishing trip. Low rollers can be as bad as choppy water.

Great trip! My son and Captain Jim bonded immediately. After trying to make me a fisherman, Captain Jim accepted failure with dignity . Luc and Captain Jim were able to catch enough Mahi to satisfy our taste for fish. If you want to learn about the ocean and learn how to catch fish, then Captain Jim is the charter to book. It was a pleasure to spend the day fishing with a man with similar old fashioned American values as myself. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND GOD BLESS CAPTAIN JIM.

Beautiful crystal clear water, fish are plentiful but Mother Nature is not to be messed with. We saw a huge water spout touchdown not far from us for about 6-7 minutes. Storms come out of nowhere and the currents are strong. If you are inexperienced hire a guide

Captain Beam went above and beyond to make sure he put us on fish. We had a great productive day of fishing. We caught lots of fish and many different species. He also recommended a restaurant where we could take our catch and have it prepared for dinner. We had a great time and would use BGS South again.

Beautiful, wonderful, fun day fishing with Reel Therapy! Captain Jim and Gina couldn’t do enough for us! We couldn’t bait the hooks fast enough. If the bites stopped hitting for more than 3 minutes, we were off to a new spot to get more fish. Looking forward to our next trip with Captain Jim!

Capt. Beamer was awesome! Down to earth guy that put us on the fish. Took us out to spots that he has scouted out and we caught fish. If we had caught all the ones that bit we would have been worn out! Very personable and knowledgeable about the area. Prepared for weather and wind conditions. We would recommend him to anyone looking for some fishing in the Keys!

Perfect seas and weather. Super friendly and accommodating captain. We were novice anglers and Beamer made sure we knew what we were doing and moved the boat to keep us in the game. Easy conversation and by the end of the trip we felt like we made a new friend. Recommend for an easy and fun fishing trip.

We caught a ton of fish and he made sure we went home with them and provided recommendations for where to eat. If you are looking to catch fish and have some fun in the keys - book with Beamer!

Captain Beamer knows how to find the fish. He did an amazing job! We both caught fish on our first cast and it was non-stop after that. We never expected to catch so many fish and we took a bunch home with us. We will definitely fish with Beamer again when we return to the keys. Thank you, Beamer, for an awesome day!

Beamer brought my 10-year-old son and me out on the water for a day of fishing and it was an extraordinary and unforgettable day. We caught lots of fish, including 3 sharks, 2 groupers, snappers, yellowtails, and grunts. Beamer is knowledgable, kind, and attentive. We are looking forward to our next trip with him!

Captain Beamer is knowledgeable, friendly, and a great host. Communication was excellent prior to the trip and he brought us on the targeted fish. He knows the area well and is a craftsman. I passed up many other guides to fish with Beamer, and I'm glad that I did. I highly recommend fishing with Captain Beamer and will look him up when I'm in the area again.

Captain Steve was absolutely great! We went out and within 15 minutes of casting we had Yellow Tail. Saw Barracuda chasing down our Yellow Tail too which was super cool. Caught a Trigger fish and Mahi Mahi. His boat is in immaculate condition. He is super knowledgeable, personable, friendly and a pleasure to hang with on the water. He fileted our fish and bagged for us to take home. Highly highly recommend. Will be back to go fish again. THANKS for a super fun day on the water!!!

Great trip, had a great time with the Captain, he knows what he’s doing. We caught a lot of fish and brought home about 14 large Mahi Mahi and threw back as many under size. Only criticism was limited seating on the boat. Everything else was great! Would book again.
