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.

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

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.

We were lucky to snag a Wahoo today as it is the end of their season. January is the beginning. So if Wahoo is what you're after, know that is your window.

Patience - the fish are out there and they are biting. Full moon allows the predators to hunt all night so expect slower days when the moon is full, or near full.

If you’re a normal salt water fisherman and like hanging with cool crew members, these are the guys to go with. A Lot of laughing, good experience and young minded. They know what to fish for so what ever trip you book with them, they still will advise what’s right after booking. Definitely take their advice. They won’t steer you wrong.

Truly enjoyed our time on the water with Captain Mark and first Mate Chris. Captain was quick to communicate with us shortly after booking and sent us a video afterwards of a large lemon shark we caught during the trip. Boat was very comfortable and offered adequate shade to give us a break from the heat when we needed it. Captain worked tirelessy to try and get us on the fish when the bite wasn't there.

Carlos was able to meet us earlier than planned to accommodate our schedule, and when my husband got seasick, he was really nice about coming back early. Even with us being completely inexperienced and the shortened time on the water, he was able to help us catch some fish and recommended a great place that cooked them up for us. Highly recommend!

I can’t say enough great things about Armando. He is friendly, kind, passionate, and knowledgeable. Armando knows the Keys liked the back of his hand. Above all Armando is honest, he will be straight forward and tell you what you might catch, what the weather will be, and what you probably won’t see. Armando has Greta equipment and definitely has earned his five star reviews. Armando is the best fishing guide if you want the best possible experience.

Capt. Dan and the first mate were amazing. Very friendly, kind and caring people. Capt. Dan warned us about choppy waters and rough winds before hand in order to prepare ourselves for the trip. Although the weather was bad, Capt. Dan and the mate did everything possible to keep everything going for us. From trying different types of fishing, to helping with sickness, they did not skip a beat. Highly recommend trying them out!
