Deep Sea Fishing in Islamorada

Islamorada deep sea fishing charters are, simply put, blessed. Why? Well, how many other fisheries can you name that can get you both a Marlin and Permit on a full day trip? Islamorada faces both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico and can yield almost any type of fish, regardless of its season, size, hue, and feeding habits.

The season is long and consistent, and you don’t need a big boat to get to deep sea fishing spots. The Gulf Stream is just 10 to 20 miles away, and its deep, warm waters can produce almost all the world's most sought-after big game fish, including Snapper, Grouper, Swordfish, Marlin, Wahoo, and Kingfish.

Both hardcore anglers and novice fishermen can unlock the full potential of Islamorada deep sea fishing on a single day trip. The crib of sportfishing, Islamorada is easy to explore on shorter trips and doesn’t require long sea voyages to get a trophy catch.

When to go deep sea fishing around Islamorada

Any time, really. As the productive fisheries are under an hour away, you don’t need to worry too much about coming here on a set date. Even during winter time, deep waters can treat you with Blue Marlin. If you want a premium package, then come here in December to get Tuna, Sailfish, and Grouper, though Wahoo may give you a nice surprise as well. Mahi Mahi seem to love the heat, so the summer blaze is the time to be around here to witness their frenzy.

How to get the fish

If you want to go home with a nice catch, the sport fishing capital of the world is the place to go. Landing Billfish here is a real something, and deep sea fishing is the best way to get a nice photo to boast about. The same goes for bottom species. There is something about the water and the terrain here that gives fishing a nice touch.

When you go for the game fish, trolling proves to be the most productive method. The local captains are mostly equipped with long rods and heavy tackle, though you may find enthusiasts who will take you out to try light tackle to get a Marlin. Bigger boats are more comfortable, less bumpy, and will often have A/C and a proper toilet but are more expensive. On the other hand, center consoles give you more flexibility when fishing and are cheaper but offer a much more 'stripped back' experience. Islamorada fleet has something for everyone’s taste.

If fishing in July like we did, plan a morning half day trip. A full day trip will be extremely hot and fishing becomes more difficult as the day heats up. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

Wear long sleeves in a breathable shirt and polarized sunglasses for those that haven't been out on the water. The sun will get you and it reflects of the water pretty heavily.

Don’t wear flip flops, wear shoes with grip as the waves can toss you around a bit and stability is a must when reeling in the big ones!
