This is the most complete list of Key West fishing charters for deep sea fishing
and offshore fishing on the Internet today!  We know that anglers want to
comparison shop online and make advance reservations with the Key West
fishing charter that's the right fit for them!!  We know how difficult it is to compare
Key West fishing charters by looking at the individual websites.  Because there are
only a few websites that Google ranks highly, many excellent charters and guides
are overlooked because their website doesn't come up on the first few pages of a
search.  We've done the research for you and compiled a very comprehensive list!
Browse through this page, see at-a-glance highlights of each Key West fishing
charter and choose
the perfect fishing charter for you!

Catching Dolphin All year is not uncommon here in the Florida keys. The best months though to ensure a good
chance at a large one is March, April, May. Dolphin are here in great numbers in June, July and August as well.

Dolphin are known as voracious predators. While their favorite prey is the flying fish, they also consume squid,
shrimp, crustaceans and even smaller dolphin. Using a keen sense of eyesight the dolphin locates most food near
clumps of floating vegetation and objects.
The dolphin is considered one of the top offshore game fish and is highly targeted by anglers around the world. It is
famous for its leaps and flips over the surface when hooked. Because of their speed and agility, dolphin provide for an
exciting catch as they run long and jump often.
Did You Know?
There are many wrecks and artificial reefs in the Florida Keys that aren't in a protected area.  Fish found at the wrecks are generally larger and more
mature.  The fish that have grown out of their adolescence and are no longer in need of their school hang out on the wrecks.  They are large and fast and
are plenty capable of catching their own meals.  There are also schools of fish that live around these massive structures of the wrecks that will gladly
come up to the surface for a free meal of live chum.  Usually big Grouper and Mutton Snapper are bottom fished and kites and flat lines are used to catch
King Mackerel, Wahoo, Sailfish or Barracuda.
Grouper are born as females but can later become male. Gag and red grouper are the most widely distributed of the Florida groupers. Goliath and
Nassau grouper are protected from harvest in Florida waters. Grouper spawn between January and May with some of the more tropical species
spawning year-round.
