The Florida Keys are a Living Coral Reef
The Florida Keys has one of the largest living coral reefs in the world! The beauty that the reef contains creates the perfect habitat for loads of fish! While fishing with Catchalottafish Charters, our guides will target fish such as Yellowtail Snapper, Grey (Mangrove) Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Mackerel, Sailfish, and huge Grouper. Actually, you can catch nearly every type of pelagic game fish in this same area! This is what makes Reef fishing so exciting!
What to Expect when fishing.....
You can catch many different types of fish in one day and be able to see them actually swimming right up next to the boat. It is an amazingly visual and exciting experience, but it can also be exhausting from reeling in all the fish you can handle. Although, you will never realize how exhausting it can be because you won’t have time to even think about being tired!
There are several techniques used while fishing on the reef. One method is chumming with ground up fish, oats, and sand. While deploying the chum, we also will use a mixture of live baits to get the fish real excited. Once the chum is in the water, look out! It is an absolutely amazing sight to see the ocean come alive! It is definitely something you won’t ever forget so hold on and let Catchalottafish Charters take you on the adventure of a lifetime!
Wreck Fishing goes hand-in-hand with Reef Fishing. Check out our Wreck Fishing Page.
I had a great experience. I took my brother-in-law and my 10 year old son (which is why we only booked a half day). The captain made sure we had plenty of action catching Yellowtail Snapper and then we went deeper where I caught a 40 pound Amber Jack. Largest fish I ever caught and probably the largest I ever will. Captain Ross DeMarzo was extremely Courteous and informative. His mate Cooper hustled to keep our poles ready. It was also nice that we had our fish cleaned and prepped after we were done. Nice boat too. We will rebook with this boat if we come back.
