We especially enjoy working with beginning anglers and families from all over the world. Getting kids hooked on fishing is awesome; kids are the future of sport fishing. We are located at Tavernier Creek Marina (www.taverniercreek-marina.com) Mile Marker 90.8. Remember, tell me what your looking for in a fishing trip this will help me determine what to target and give you the best possible trip. Sport-fishing in the Florida Keys is a team effort. Were all hunting for whats biting. I will do my best to customize the trip based on the style of fishing you prefer & work hard to put you on the fish.
Like clockwork the wahoo showed up in the Florida Keys. Conditions were right in the Florida Keys this past Monday for targeting my all time favorite the Florida Keys "Wahoo". Seeing the Blue Tiger Strips in water never gets old. I spend countless hours studying these fish as not much known about them or published. Fishing for wahoo is considered big game fishing. If conditions are right I will look for these fish during the winter. I have to pick my days to do this as the conditions have to be just right(tide, moon, weather, water temperature etc...) December & January can be good months for wahoo fishing.

What to expect this Fall/Winter Offshore in the Upper Florida Keys
Written by Capt. Ryan on October 13th
"Less Boat Traffic= the Return of Good Offshore Fishing"
Our Mahi Mahi fishing has picked back up. We should see really good Mahi Mahi (dolphin) fishing through early January 2014.The smaller summertime June/July Mahi Mahi have grown and are hungry and are pushing southward back to the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea. The blackfin tuna fishing along the reef edge is back into play. Kingfish & Cobia will be on the list of species as well. We will be geared up for winter wahoo fishing both live bait and trolling.
As the cold front pass through the fishing heats up along the edge of the reef.
If sailfish is your game please let me know on the phone well ahead of the trip.
Offshore fishing requires a lot of patience; remember we are big game hunting. Some days the fish will literally eat anything, but then there are other days where it takes time to find the fish. Most offshore fish such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish and Tuna don’t take up full time residence in our waters. Check out our Florida Keys Fish calendar before planning a trip or just give me a call at 305-619-2126 & ask me what’s happening offshore in the Florida Keys.
Fall/Winter Wahoo Fishing Time!
This winter season we will do a little bit of trolling and live baiting for wahoo & big smoker king fish on full day charters.
What to Expect on the Reef this fall/winter in the Upper Florida Keys
Just a short 10-15 minute ride from Tavernier Creek Marina on the deep reefs we will anchor up & chum for Yellowtail, Mutton Snappers, & Groupers. These fish really like to eat. On all trips I am targeting big snappers and groupers. I use commercial fishing techniques and other fun “stuff” like my homemade “Islamorada Party Mix” soft chum to get them eating. After chumming for about 15 minutes the fish enter the “Good Karma Food Coma” that’s when the fishing fun really starts.
On charters we can now add deep dropping to the mix for tasty deep water snappers (queens, yelloweye, silky and verms), snowy grouper, and the fish that tastes just like lobster or even better the tile fish.
Grouper season will remain open until January 1st.
Fishing the reef for dolphin, tuna, wahoo, and kingfish will heat up.
Fishing the reef is a the perfect trip for first time fisherman & families with young children.
