Captain Frank offers these world-class fishing charters in the Sport Fishing Capital of the World—Islamorada! The Keys hold the largest variety of migratory game fish in the world, providing Frank's many clients with the charter fishing experience of a lifetime! Whether you are an experienced angler or a novice fisherman, he can accommodate all your Florida Keys charter fishing needs. Come enjoy a fun, safe, and action-packed day of offshore fishing in the #1 fishing destination in the US. Just offshore of the Florida Keys, the Gulf Stream flows with an ever-changing population of highly sought-after game fish. Throughout the seasons, Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi, Marlin, Tuna, Kingfish, and Wahoo, (just to name a few) migrate here to feed and offer fishermen the thrill of a lifetime! Simply put Florida Keys offshore fishing or deep-sea fishing is best described as any fishing done while the boat is in motion. The depths that you'll fish will range sometimes dramatically depending on the fish we are targeting. **Action at the Humps** Off the shores of Islamorada lie several seamounts, which are basically underwater mountainous formations. As the sea currents rush against these formations huge schools of baitfish are trapped attracting predators - the highly sought-after sport fish you're looking for! These "humps," as they're called, provide dependable deep-sea action unlike any fishing grounds in the world. There you'll look for large flocks of diving birds, and fish crashing, when you see it you know you are in for an exciting day of fishing in the Florida Keys. **Mahi-Mahi** There is nothing quite like getting into a school of mahi-mahi and watching them fly through the crystal clear water after your bait. Once in a school, you can expect lots of excitement on deck as several lines hook up at once. Dolphin can be quite acrobatic putting on a spectacular show. In the spring and summer dolphins are plentiful from the Islamorada hump to the west hump and almost anywhere in between. Captain Frank will watch carefully for diving frigate birds and floating debris. Once he's zeroed in on the dolphin, these magnificently colorful fish can be lured into quite a feeding frenzy. **Tuna** In the winter months, Black Fin Tuna are plentiful on the Islamorada hump. We troll live bait while pitching pilchards over the side. Smaller Blackfins also make for great bait to catch those monster AJ's (amberjack). This is a fight you won't soon forget! **Marlin** We always have a pitch rod ready should a sailfish or marlin decide to show up for feeding time. We will also have a rod rigged with a wire leader ready, fishing the humps for wahoo. With all the many different fishing opportunities while offshore fishing, it takes an experienced captain and a hard-working first mate, who have prepared the right rods for the job. Speed and know-how are the key if you don't want to miss a big fish guest appearance. While fishing for targeted species on your Florida Keys fishing charter Captain Frank knows what is likely to show up and will always be prepared in the case that they do! **Sailfish** Florida Keys Sailfish season typically begins in November. As the summer begins to cool off with those first cold fronts on a north wind. This is when the sailfish begin to migrate south, following bait schools. The Sailfish season usually really kicks into high gear after the first of the year. Captain Frank looks for stellar sailfish catches following a cold front this time of year with about a 15k not north wind. Florida Keys sailfish charters are a fun, exciting, and action-packed day on the water. Nothing quite compares to watching a sail hit your bait as it runs and begins its acrobatic dance through the water. When sailfish season is in full swing we keep the boat cheering with multiple sailfish bites going at once. Sailfish charters will start with catching plenty of live bait. Usually, Captain Frank's most productive bites will come on ballyhoo, slow trolling off the riggers. He also has lots of fun with his clients chasing bait showers in the shallows where we cast live bait on light spinning rods. Captain Frank is equipped with different techniques including kite fishing depending on the conditions of the day. All of Captain Franks's charters are complete with extensive bait, fish cleaning, tackle, Penn reels, rods, and a professional, experienced, and dedicated captain and mate, who will do whatever it takes to make your Florida Keys charter fishing trip a success.

Additionally, Islamorada hosts several tournaments throughout the year, including the Islamorada Sailfish Tournament and Cheeca Lodge Tarpon Tournament, providing both serious competition and family-friendly events.

Islamorada Inshore Fishing Charters

As far as inshore fishing is concerned, you'd be hard pressed to find a find a better destination. The little slice of inshore heaven situated between the tip of Florida and the island has some of the best backcountry fishing on the planet. Islands, sandbars and flats divide countless basins and bays.

The backcountry bite is on year round. The weather here rarely gets below 60 degrees, which means plenty of inshore gamefish spend their winters feeding in the warm waters. In addition to your classic inshore denizens like Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Snook, these waters hold bucket list species like few places on earth. Sight fishing for Bonefish and Permit in the flats is the experience of a lifetime, especially on the fly.

Islamorada is a major stop on the Tarpon migration down the east coast and around the gulf. They pretty much hang out here year round. You would be hard pressed to find a better place to catch The Silver King. From late February through early November, schools of Tarpon make the backcountry bays and basins their feeding grounds. While not ideal, they can still be caught in the winter months - just imagine what it's like when the water's warm.

Islamorada Fly Fishing

For the fly angler, it just doesn't get better than Islamorada. There's no question why fly anglers from all over the world flock here every year. With an army of world-class fly guides at the helm, catching that grand slam on the fly is within reach. While going after Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon, there's always the option to go after a hard fighting Redfish or Snook just around the corner.

Islamorada Deep Sea Fishing Charters

The action doesn't stop when the water gets deeper. Nearshore, bountiful reefs hold Snapper and Grouper variants year round, with shots at exotics like African Pompano and Hogfish. Red snapper fishing season in Islamorada typically opens in early June and runs through mid-August. The exact dates of the season may vary from year to year and are subject to change based on federal regulations and fishing quotas. Stay up to date on the 2023 red snapper season here. Filling up the freezer with delicious fish fillets has never been easier.

Further offshore, flybridge sportfishers and center consoles troll, deep trop, and kite fish for everything under the sun. The deepwater swordfish fishing is excellent here, arguably the best in the world. Bluewater pelagics like Mahi-Mahi, Sailfish, Blue Marlin, and Wahoo are always biting on the longer offshore trips.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Randy was kind, very knowledgeable of the area as well as where to find the giant Tarpon. We had a wonderful time talking about everything, getting to know one another and We appreciated his extensive knowledge of fishing the Islamorada waters. His equipment is new and tackle is spot on and we enjoyed every moment of our trip.

    Dave A. with Randy S. of Islamorada, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We had an amazing time on a tough fishing day, would definitely book again when I am in the area. Andrew is great with the kids, and super patient with the beginners. He did everything he could to put us on fish. He also pointed out the abundance of wildlife, including sea turtles, hammerhead sharks, and a manatee. Everything we could hope for with my son's first saltwater fishing adventure.

    William S. with Andrew A. of Key Largo, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We booked a 3/4 day after speaking with the captain the (plan) was made to shoot out deep and if we were not hitting them we would come in on the 3/4 day booking rather than a full day. Captain troy and his first mate worked as hard as I have ever seen to get fish on the boat. Not sure but at one time I think he had a deep running plug in one marlin plug and 4 top water trolling plugs so it looked like they were shooting for many different depths. We finally got into the mahi-mahi it was on. The first mate and captain maneuvered through 4 men as quick as humanly possible pulling fish off the lines and baiting hooks and handing them back. The only true way to explain it would be controlled chaos. These guys are GREAT at what they do and both the first mate and the captain seem to be fantastic people in there own right. So if your looking for a hard working boat stop here at Miller Time....

    Vance T. with Troy W. of Islamorada, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Great day out with Captain Billy B that I strongly recommend. When I said I wanted to catch trout, I was not expecting to catch over 50 on a 6 hour trip. Not only does Captain Billy know his fishing spots in the Everglades but he will also take the time to teach you how to improve your techniques. How to catch a fish at almost every cast. am sure he is great with kids. If you are looking for a monthly rental, or even buying a house in the area, he is also your man.

    Cornelissen M. with Billy B. of Islamorada, Florida

    Great fishing. Captain Paul delivered and put us on plenty of Mahi-Mahi. 5 star experience.

    Gary A. with Paul J. of Islamorada, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Incredible fishing! I’ve never had the experience where I cast my line and within 5 seconds I get a strike. Over and over, it was constant cast and strike. Caught 20 fish in the first hour. Not only an expert guide for fishing, but Patrick is a really nice person to hang out with. Super chill to talk sports and fishing, but was cool and professional. He also recommended an awesome place for lunch where they grilled our catch! Top notch, highest recommendation possible!

    Robert B. with Patrick B. of Key Largo, Florida

    Some times you are fortunate to meet people that leave a deep impression an impregnation on you. Captain Mark is one of these rare persons. I was fortunate to go fishing with him today and we had a blast. He is so kind, so full of knowledge, that I do recommend going fishing with him. His repeated actions around the wounded warrior project are a tribute to his care about his peers and good people in general.

Our crew got to catch some great mackerel, yellowtail snapper and mutton snapper, plus more! Being able to celebrate my love for fishing and send off in the Keys with my gfs and Chris was the best! He got me on a huge tarpon hook up that I’ll absolutely never forget. Highly highly recommend this trip and we’ll certainly be back!!!

    We had a great day on the water. Caught a variety of fish, some bigger some smaller. Captain Jason proved to be a real people person, in firm control of his craft. Great conversationalist. Definitely would go out with him again.

    Our trip with Anthony totally exceeded our expectations. From the moment we met him we knew we were in for a wonderful experience. His equipment is all first class and his knowledge of the back bay is extensive. After putting us on many fish and constant action, we were able to catch a beautiful snook for the dinner table and a fish that was a trophy fish of a lifetime. He then suggested a local restaurant and suggestions on how to prepare our catch. The ambiance, service and food preparation was the best meal of our entire trip. We would highly recommend Captain Anthony and love to spend more time with him whenever possible.

    The trip was great! The kids caught a bunch of fish and Andrew kept them baited up the whole trip. Catching a big nurse shark made the trip extra special.
