trip description for The Florida Keys Inshore Experience in Key West

Head out with Captain Ryan to see what fishing the Florida Keys is known for: its Gorgeous and Bountiful backcountry, flats, and inshore waters! The 4 hour half day trip involves fishing the backcountry and inshore waters near and around Key West. You will usually stay within 9 nautical miles of the dock. The average depth of water is about 12'. We can target Tarpon, sharks, snapper, jacks , barracuda, Cobia and permit depending on time of year. Sometimes, you may want to extend your stay on the water to a 6 hour trip. There are spots that are just a bit too far to be hit on the normal half-day trip that you can explore. More time on the water spent can equal more time reeling in the big ones! Read More

Climb aboard with Captain Antonio "Tony" for an epic 4 to 8-hour experience up to 17 miles off the coast of the beautiful Florida Keys. Whether you want to troll the open waters or post up and do some bottom fishing, this luxurious 35' Egg Harbor sportfisher will have you covered! Trolling the open waters can produce hard fighting species like Amberjacks, Sailfish and Mahi.

Bottom fishing changes the target species to an entirely different set of fish. You can expect delicious and hard-fighting reef species like Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Kingfish, and even Sharks! The experienced crew will provide all the fishing gear you need, and they'll even serve up some delicious sandwiches on the 6 and 8 hour trips. All that’s left to do is bring some drinks and sunscreen, and cast off with Captain Tony! Read More

Key West provides the unique ability to target the tarpon migration in Key West Harbor. This trip is offered from (roughly as the migration does fluctuate) March 1- July 31. This trip is centered around fishing-specific times and tides in Key West Harbor and other areas surrounding Key West. If chasing the Silver King is what you're after book know to get out there with the best!! During this trip, there are many other fish that you can catch in the harbor as well. Some of them are; cobia, permit, bonefish, mutton snapper, mangrove snapper, red grouper, black grouper, gag grouper, sharks, barracudas, jacks and many other species.

Looking for kid friendly cobia guides / fishing lessons in Florida? Check out our beginner and family friendly cobia guides in Florida.

What types of cobia fishing charters are common in Florida?

Deep Sea fishing is the most popular type of fishing for cobia in Florida as well as nearshore fishing, inshore fishing, and flats fishing.

The most common fishing techniques in Florida are bottom fishing, trolling, and light tackle fishing but live bait fishing and heavy tackle fishing are popular as well.

How much do Florida cobia fishing charters cost?

Prices for cobia in Florida can range anywhere from about $600 to $4,320, but the average price for a half day trip for cobia in Florida is $1,134. The average price for a full day trip for cobia in Florida is $2,495.

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

What month is best for cobia fishing in Florida?

The most popular season for cobia fishing in Florida is summer, and most anglers book their trips 11 days in advance.

Do I need a Florida fishing license for cobia and what are the bag limits for cobia in Florida?

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    We had an absolutely amazing time deep sea fishing with Captain Anthony! He is a fun and knowledgeable fisherman with LOTS of experience and great stories (ask him about how he’d dive for lobsters to impress his dates). He does all the work but lets you learn and participate as much or as little as you want. We knew we had an expert when we heard the radio chatter of all the other guides complaining that nothing was biting, while we pulled in six (only four mahi in pic). The other two were a small tuna and a ~32” barracuda). We highly recommend Kilo Whiskey Charter & Captain Anthony!
