Look very well for a good boat and crew, booking on line is sometimes deceitful . Boat was supposed to have A/C cabin, that was not working . Even if it was , it was full of junk , I could not put my family there . The trip was more about the captain being able to stay within cell phone reception than getting the costumer what he paid for. The mate was superb , he busted his ass to please and was making excuses for the poor experience. I’m not a professional angler, but I know my basics , I have done over fifty charter trip s from Cancun to corpus Christie . The equipment selection was poor , hooking a 100 pounder with 20 lb line , it broke over and over. He didn’t want to use the heavy rods . We tip because of the mate’s hard work . I do not recommend this charter . In my oipinion must be removed from fishing booker.

Talk to your Captain ahead of time and ask a lot of questions about what is biting and what he recommends given your desires for species of interest. This also allows you to gauge your expectations appropriately....e.g., I want to catch a 20 lbs grouper. The captain says he can put you where some grouper may be present, but it's rare to catch one that size inshore. He says, would you prefer to catch trout instead, they are biting nicely right now and would have more action. You say, nope, I would rather fish all day and catch nothing in hopes of that one big fish.....OR, yes, I would rather have action and it be something else but still good to eat and fight on the rod. Your choice....

If you want back country fishing for snook and reds just know it is a bit of a ride out to the everglades for the best fishing. They don't take you right around the island itself too often. Remember different fish in different months pass through here. And some fish like snook have a season where you can keep some of what you catch. Most of the time we get them and they are not in season but a great fish to catch and fight. And most restaurants do a "cook your catch" option to bring your fresh filets and have them cook you up dinner from your hard days work/fun.

Go to a local bait shop if your fishing on your own and ask them where to fish and whats biting. They are very helpful. Also book Reel deal fishing charter if you want a professional to take you out there!

A bit of a long boat ride over to the Glades, but great open water runs and super fishing in the flats makes it worth the trip.

Fishing Booker is actually wrong, I believe, in this boat's location. This particular boat is out of Islamarada. Not sure it matters unless you actually wanted to fish Key Largo.

Make sure to reserve time for more than one day fishing. Don't go out if any whitecaps are visible, and make sure you can cancel without getting stuck with full cost.

I believe we fished out of Everglades Park about two miles out. I don't believe we fished out of Key Largo.

Remember it's "fishing" not "catching". But the weather is hot, the beer is cold, and the times are great!

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.
