Offshore Fishing in Islamorada

Islamorada offshore fishing is spectacular. These fisheries are the capital of sport fishing for a good reason, and whether you’re a rookie angler or a hardcore seasoned fisherman, you will have a blast on an average day of fishing.

What you can get offshore

Well, the list is pretty long, so don’t say we didn’t warn ya! Islamorada offshore is a relative term, really, as this little piece of fishing heaven lies just a few miles away from the gulf stream. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on the one side, and facing the Gulf waters on the other, Islamorada offshore is home to Blue Marlin, Blackfin Tuna, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, and many more. Fishing trips that target these fellas would convert any not-so-outdoorsy person into a wanna-be fisherman after a half day trip, you can bet on that.

The Islamorada Hump is a famed offshore location. Many reports include mentions of Sailfish, Sharks, and monster Amberjacks, as well as Wahoo. Once you reach these fisheries, you can try trolling, jigging, kite fishing, or bottom fishing for tasty tablefare. Some charters may even offer spearfishing, so if you’re feeling like taking a more niche approach, that’s your chance.

When to come fishing in Islamorada

As to when, Islamorada offshore fishing charters come back with a solid catch year round. It might sound corny, but that’s how it is. When the spring kicks in, offshore fishing charters can even get a Marlin, and as the water heats up, so does the action. You will be seeing Mahi Mahi and Wahoo, and in the winter time, it’s Tuna, Sailfish, and Kingfish all over the place.

Islamorada offshore fishing charters operate year round, luckily enough for anglers. But, Islamorada offshore is not only about pelagics. During the spring, the offshore reefs can present you with some tasty Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper, while Grouper come as the main course during summer.

What anglers said about Offshore Fishing in Islamorada

Really check out the guides before you commit. We've had some losers. It's kind of hard to do long distance; we are from Montana. On our trip, late April 2024, it was a cooler than normal spring evidently. Luckily, the water temp worked out. April is an awesome month to come out. The weather is great, the water is warm, fishing is like no other.

Book with Singing Reels! The crew provided exceptional instruction and service, and were so personable and fun. Captain Tony emailed me the same day we booked, kept in touch and called to make sure all our questions were answered so we knew what to expect!The recommendations of where to take our catch to have it prepared, and to have some shipped home were great, and we enjoyed our catch at an Oceanside restaurant. We will book again with Tony and his crew! Best Florida fishing experience ever!

The 2 hour trip was great if you are short on time and want to get in the highlights. It goes by fast when you are having fun, so we did wish we booked the 4 hour once we were out there.

Seasoned anglers or first timers, this is a great opportunity to build lasting memories with family or friends on a boat with a crew that is top notch. Friendly, helpful, kind, I just can’t say enough nice things about these guys.

Trust the captain on what kind of fish to target. If you try to pick one species you might spend a whole day and not catch much. Be flexible

Our trip was much closer to the harbor than we thought. We had expected to go out a ways, but stayed within a few minutes of the harbor. Not that it’s bad to fish there, and we were successful, just not what we had pictured. Still great!

Winds can turn certain bites on or off day to day. However, it’s not the sport fishing capital of the world for no reason. I doubt you’ll find a bad boat and crew in any marina fleet.
