Home to the only living coral reef in mainland US, as well as the country’s first underwater park, “the Diving Capital of the World” awaits you! Fishing in Key Largo is something else – it has everything you’d expect from the Florida Keys and more. With the wild Everglades on one side, and the vast Atlantic on the other, this is a unique fishery that’s bound to leave you breathless.

The shallow waters of Key Largo hide an abundance of fish – Snook, Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, and Redfish all call them home. Visiting the rich reefs will give you a chance to reel in some big Snapper and Grouper. Heading further offshore? The deep ocean will reward you with Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Cobia, Kingfish, Marlin, and even Sailfish.

There’s a lot to see and do in Key Largo. If you want to spend a little time with your family in the flats and backcountry, book a half day trip. Full day trips are geared towards more experienced anglers, while extended full day trips are for serious sport fishermen looking to break some records.

When looking for a charter in this stunning town, all you have to do is step outside! Fishing charters are dotted all along the island, so you can just choose which side you want to visit and you’re all set.

Rules & Regulations

Heading out on the water aboard a fishing charter means that you don’t have to worry about the license – your captain will cover it. As there are specific regulations when it comes to certain species, booking a reputable captain is the best way to make sure you’re fishing within the law.

January

With Key Largo temperatures staying in the mid 70s in January (with the occasional colder spell), you'll enjoy getting out on the water to catch Sailfish offshore and Permit on the flats. Don't miss the Key Largo Sailfish Challenge!

February

This is the coldest month of the year, with temperatures dropping into the chilly realms of the low 60s. Catch big Permit on the flats, shelter in the backcountry, or go offshore for Sailfish, and more.

March

Spring Break means one thing in Key Largo – crowds, and lots of them. Escape to the backcountry and spend the day chasing after Redfish, Snook, and Permit. Warmer days have potential for some Bonefish and Tarpon too.

April

March is busy on the island and at the docks. Spring winds can disturb the seas but it's usually calm towards the end of the month. Look out for shrimp boats on the Gulf for good Blackfin Tuna fishing. This is a great month for big Dorado.

May

May is one of the busiest times of the year on the water in the Keys. The Tarpon season is kicking off and most guides are on trips day in and day out. Offshore, the seas are calmer – catch Grouper while you still can.

June

As temperatures rise, the fishing settles into summertime. The seas are calm and there is some great fly fishing available on the flats. Check out the Skippers Dolphin Tournament – will you catch the biggest Mahi?

July

The weather is very hot but the waters are still and gin clear. Bonefish, Redfish, and Snook are caught on the flats, while big Wahoo, Dolphin, and even Marlin can be caught offshore. Watch out for afternoon thunderstorms. 

August

Hot and humid weather continues, but there are some good deals in hotels. This is a good time to catch a slam in the flats, while there's the possibility of catching a mighty Blue Marlin offshore.

September

If you're into flats fishing, come to Key Largo in September. This is one of the best times of year to catch the area's large Bonefish. At the height of the tropical storm season, be ready to change your plans at the last minute.

October

The temperatures begin to cool. This is one of the quietest months in Key Largo. But be careful – a lot of captains and guides choose this month to go on vacation so don't leave it too late to plan your charter trip.

November

Cold fronts start to arrive, which can mix up the fishing. Flats and backcountry are always a good choice, with Snook, Redfish, and Speckled Trout biting well. Otherwise, choose a calm day to get out onto the reefs or offshore.

December

Make the most of the good Grouper bite while the season is still open and cook yourself up an alternative festive dinner. Sailfish, Wahoo, and Tuna are biting offshore, while flats and backcountry fishing is as good as ever.

Key Largo is a phenomenon place to fish in late July. You have lobster mini-season, the inshore flats & mangroves, and deep sea. It is without a doubt my favorite place to saltwater fish.

My friend and I where down in key largo on vacation and were looking for a private charter. We ended up choosing capt. Calhoun and couldn’t have been happier. He picked us up in his boat and got us out quick, very easy to talk to and showed us a lot and had an answer for every question. Without even meeting him prior it felt like going fishing with an old friend. 10/10 will 100% book him again in the future

We did two full days with Dustin and Connor. Weather wasn't cooperating and made the fishing challenging. The guys worked hard trying to get us on some fish, but mother nature won. Had a great time on the boat, definitely recommend giving them a shot.

Me my wife and 2 boys (5/6 years old) all had a blast fishing with Chef Charles and Jaylen, we’re all new to fishing and never fished saltwater but it didn’t take long before the boys were hooking and reeling in their own fish and having a great time! We were concerned about the boys catching on but they had great help and lots of patience. After we returned to shore Chef cooked us our fish and an amazing meal that even our “very picky“ son enjoyed, thanks for everything!
