Reef Fishing in Key Largo

As the largest island in the Florida Keys, it's no surprise that Key Largo offers an abundance of angling and water sports opportunities. Key Largo reef fishing charters will take you to the crystal clear, productive waters along the coral reefs. Get your fish on and hunt a range of beautiful, exciting, and delicious fish!

What to Expect

With a range of reefs and depths, Key Largo reef fishing charters cater to beginners and experts alike. Choose between a half day, three-quarter day, and full day trip. Beginners and families may prefer shorter trips to familiarize yourselves with the waters, while pros can spend more time on the water. 
 
With the fishing grounds so close, you won’t waste a single second. Start filling the boat right away. Beginners will learn all about bottom fishing, and you may also have the chance to watch the trolling lines in action. 
 
Most trips take place aboard a center console. These boats give a 360-degree view, enabling you to follow your fish as you battle it out. The more experienced among you can engage in sight casting in these clear blue waters. 
 
Key Largo reef fishing charters will give you the chance to fill the freezer. Whether you’re a novice or pro, you’re sure to land plenty of delicious fish. Go after Hogfish, Mangrove, Mutton, and Yellowtail Snappers, as well as Gag, Red, and Black Groupers for a special treat at the end of the day. 
 
If you’re looking to test your skills, there’s no shortage of tough-fighting fish, either. Target Goliath Groupers, Barracuda, Kingfish, Amberjacks, and many more on the patch reefs and wrecks. 

How to Prepare

Most Key Largo reef fishing charters also offer inshore or offshore trips. Some captains may ask you to let them know which trip you’d like. If that’s the case, then get in touch to tell them where you want to fish and how much experience you have on the water. 
 
All the necessary fishing tackle will be waiting for you on board. Your captain may prepare live bait beforehand or you may catch it on the way to the fishing grounds.
 
You can expect some complimentary water on board to keep you hydrated, but bring your own drinks and snacks, too. Other than that, just make sure to bring some shades, long sleeves, a hat, and sunscreen to protect from the sun, and settle in for a thrilling day on the pristine waterways!

Rob M. fished with Leatherneck Backcountry Fishing on February 26, 2020
February is just a little early for the big tarpon run. I was hoping to get lucky on some early arrivals. It didn't happen so changed the game plan, and had a blast the rest of the day smashing all different species of fish of all different sizes. Don't be afraid to adapt or even change your game plan. You might enjoy it. I loved it!
