Spearfishing in Florida

If you’re looking for a unique way to get your fish on, why not give spearfishing in Florida a try? From the Panhandle to the Keys, the Sunshine State is packed full of places where you can try out this technique. The warm waters that surround Florida attract a wide number of famous fish, making them the perfect place to dive in, spear in hand, and explore what lies beneath!
 
So what can you target when spearfishing in Florida? This varies depending on where you choose to start your trip, but there are some fish you’ll likely encounter all around the state. Most spearfishing takes place around Florida’s many reefs, where you’ll be battling anything from Snappers, Groupers, Triggerfish, and Cobia, to Tuna, Kingfish, Amberjack, and Mahi Mahi.
 
Most spearfishing charters in Florida run trips that last anywhere from half a day on the water to a full day excursion, so you’re bound to find something that suits you, no matter your skill level. Beginners can opt for shorter trips and learn the ropes of this exciting sport, whereas hardcore spearos can indulge in longer options that allow for plenty of fish-chasing beneath the water. 
 
When it comes to choosing your location, the jewel in Florida’s spearfishing crown has to be the Florida Keys. This collection of islands is surrounded by warm waters year-round, with a wealth of reefs to explore. In the Panhandle, you have Destin, Panama City, and Pensacola to choose from. Naples and Tampa Bay are popular spots along the Suncoast, whereas Miami, Daytona, and Port Orange are favorite East Coast destinations.
 
The majority of spearfishing charters dotted around Florida will provide all the equipment you need, although there may be a surcharge. It’s best to check in with your captain to make sure you’re on the same page. Your fishing license will also be covered by your charter guide.

What anglers said about Spearfishing in Florida

Great experience for shallow water light tackle fishing. Quality and quantity of fish. Was a little cold and windy for this time of year but not unbearable. Definitely recommend this trip for your first visit to Key West.

A cold front came in and made it windy and a bit choppy for 2/3 days but our captain still put us on a lot of fish and we had a great time. Just remember that the 70’s may sound warm, but it’ll feel chilly on the boat; pack your clothes accordingly.

Fish hard and be patient. Fish slow down with the cooler water temps and you may not always get what you’re after but there’s still plenty of action to be found in the winter.

Listen to Captain Mark, because he knows where the fish are, and how to catch them. Bring a light jacket to keep you comfortable when underway. Take fish pictures before you clean them.

Start taking motion sickness medicine a couple of days prior to a fishing trip. Low rollers can be as bad as choppy water.

Contact the Captain prior to booking to help customize your trip and help them best meet your expectations. Also know that fishing depends on the behavior of the fish, when they’re not biting, they’re not biting.

It was a little choppy but I don’t imagine that had to deal with it being December. Sergio said the wind change didn’t help that so it’s tough to say. But it wasn’t too hot and it was so pretty.

Our trip was not specifically for fishing, more for a combination of shelling, fishing and bird/dolphin watching. We only caught a couple of fish, but we did not fish very long so were pleased with what we caught.

Check with the captain in a private message or go to their Facebook and locate their phone number and talk with them directly to find out if the conditions are looking good enough to go out (offshore specifically otherwise they may talk you into an inshore trip). Don’t get me wrong inshore fishing can get you some great fishing and if you only have a certain amount of time to be in the area go fish on!

Bring a jacket and sunscreen. Florida weather can be unpredictable during winter. Make sure you have something if you are prone to seasickness it will make or break your trip.

It’s a great destination for fishing. There’s a lot of variety to catch and you don’t need to travel far from shore. There’s less time traveling and more time fishing.

Skill and experience matters, Captain Davy is the best choice. Great conversation, laughter, and a real knowledge of the waterways of New Symnra. He was faced with tricky weather conditions and we still caught fish. Thank you Captain!!

Excellent opportunity to catch fish in early fall. Temps are pleasant and any day on the water is better than a lot of other things you could be doing.
