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.

If you are looking to catch largemouth bass, look for Captain Dave of David Paycheck fishing charters. He is an amazing captain and very knowledgeable about the fish.

Be careful about when you book in refards to opening day for Red Snapper. It can quickly get "overfished".

I booked this trip for my husband for Father's Day. Along with a friend. They had a good time. The Captain and crew were great. Unfortunately they came home with no fish. One person caught a Grouper and my husband caught a Trigger Fish. The Captain felt bad and even stayed out a little longer but nature said No.. This also was the night fishing trip. I will definitely book again.

Sun’s too hot for fish and some waters can be saturated with bait by the end of the day Sunday. Early morning and cooler weather better.

Ask to catch lots of fish, they will put you on a spot to do that, if you ask to catch big fish, they will put you on the spot but if fish do not cooperate well then you won't catch fish. But in the first spot once you start catching fish you never know, you could catch something big .

Right time of year to land red snapper! Bring sunscreen and plenty of water or Gatorade, your favorite canned drinks (non alcoholic) to stay hydrated. Small snacks are all you need. Most of your time you’ll spend fishing or enjoying the boat ride. If you get seasick, plan to take Dramamine the night before and the morning of - the water can get choppy when you get out in deep water.

I was worried that a tropical storm moved through the day before dumping lots of rain. Captain Bill assured me the lake would be fine. He was right. Bring sunscreen, water and lots of bait.
