trip description for Hot Pursuit in the Gulf Stream in Islamorada

Launching from Whale Harbor with Captain Larry puts you a mere 30 minutes ride offshore to the Gulf Stream's premier hot spots. Captain Larry and crew won’t waste a moment taking you to the action either. On these trips, you will head out up to 30 miles offshore and to target Dolphin, Blackfin Tuna, Amberjack, Wahoo, Shark, Marlin, Sailfish, King Mackerel, and more! If your interest peaked at dolphin/mahi-mahi, you should book your trip from May to October when the population explodes! The charter boat trolls rigged baits and lures to locate schools of dolphin that range from 5 to 50 pounds. Once a school is found, their voracious appetites and abundant numbers result in a feeding frenzy you’ll never forget. And, since Mahi is excellent table fare, you’ll want to keep them for dinner. Your boat’s mate will gladly fillet them and you can arrange to have your catch prepared at any of the local restaurants. From November to April, Captain Larry primarily targets sailfish, using live bait on light tackle. Catching the baitfish (ballyhoo) on the way out to the deep water is a super fun way to start off your adventure (Especially given the prospect that those fish will turn into even bigger fish!) The ballyhoo are chummed up to the surface, where they are caught by cast net or by fishing for them using tiny hair hooks. Once the bait well is full, the boat runs to the outside edge of the reef and the action begins. If you’ve never hooked into a 7-foot-long tail-walking sailfish on light tackle, you’re in for a thrill of a lifetime! We practice catch and release for all bill fishing and ask about no-kill fish mounts. All you need to bring for your trip with Captain Larry are your favorite snacks, drinks, and lunch if you'd like. Captain Larry will provide everything else from a captain & crew that cares, all the licenses, rods, tackle & bait, a clean & spacious vessel, and a filleting and bagging service for your catch!

Captain Frank and his Charter offer world class fishing charters in the Sport Fishing Capital of the World - Islamorada! Islamorada fishing charters are unmatched! The Keys hold the largest variety of migratory game fish in the world - providing their clients the charter fishing experience of a lifetime! Whether you are an experienced angler or a novice fisherman, they 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...Islamorada, Florida Keys! Just a few miles off the Florida Keys lay the largest living coral reef system in the continental United States. The reef system is huge and complex and close in proximity to the Marina... providing you more fishing options than anywhere else in the world. We have the main "Florida Reef" stretching from Key Largo to the Dry Tortuga's. Captain Frank spends many productive days fishing the edge of the reef for Sailfish, dolphin, wahoo and much more. Moreover, the Florida Keys reef system provides abundant fishing year-round due to the variety of reefs. The area has many shallow patch reefs, deeper bank reefs, and tons of natural and man-made wrecks scattered in between that hold all different kinds of fish! Patch reef fishing brings in all kinds of tasty and fun to catch fish including: Mangrove Snapper, Mutton, Yellowtail, Grouper, Mackerel, Shark and Barracuda. Patch Reef fishing is a fun option for the more laid back fishing charter. The patch reefs are generally considered nearshore, providing great fishing in calmer seas than "offshore". Your crew will have a great time whipping the Yellowtail Snapper into a frenzy around the back of the boat. Yellowtail Snapper are a local table fare favorite, and fun to catch on light rods by kids of all ages. Florida Keys bottom fishing on some of the deeper reefs and countless wrecks in Islamorada is a great way to spend the day as well. The abundance of baitfish seeking shelter along these reefs and wrecks make for an action packed Florida Keys charter fishing experience! There the bite is fast-paced and unpredictable with snapper, grouper, mackerel, African pompano, amberjack, kingfish, shark and barracuda all competing for the plethora of bait. That next bite might just be that trophy fish you’ve been looking for! All of Captain Franks's charters are complete with extensive bait, fish cleaning, tackle, Penn reels, rods, your fishing license, professional, experienced and dedicated captain and mate, who will do whatever it takes to make your Florida Keys charter fishing trip a success.

What is barracuda fishing in Islamorada all about?

Barracuda are a common sight in the waters around Isla Morada, known for their sleek, torpedo-like bodies and razor-sharp teeth. These predatory fish are often found patrolling near reefs, wrecks, and drop-offs, where they hunt smaller fish with lightning-fast strikes. Barracuda fishing in Isla Morada can be an exhilarating experience, as these aggressive predators provide thrilling fights and heart-pounding moments for anglers of all skill levels.

The barracuda season in Isla Morada is generally year-round, as these fish are present in the area's warm waters throughout much of the year. However, they may be more abundant during certain times, such as the spring and summer months when water temperatures rise and baitfish become more plentiful. Anglers targeting barracuda often use fast-moving lures or live baitfish to entice strikes, and they can be caught from both boats and shorelines.

Aside from barracuda, Isla Morada offers a wide range of other species for anglers to target. These include popular gamefish such as tarpon, bonefish, mahi-mahi, and sailfish, as well as reef species like snapper and grouper. Whether fishing inshore, offshore, or on the reefs, anglers visiting Isla Morada can expect an abundance of opportunities to hook into exciting and rewarding catches throughout the year.

What are the most popular months to fish for barracuda fishing in Islamorada?

Barracuda are a prevalent species in the waters around Isla Morada, and they can be found year-round in the area's warm, tropical waters. However, their abundance may vary depending on the season and environmental factors. Generally, barracuda fishing in Isla Morada is most productive during the warmer months, from late spring through early fall, when water temperatures are higher and baitfish populations are more abundant. During these times, barracuda are often more active and aggressive, making them easier to target for anglers.

In Isla Morada, barracuda can be found in a variety of habitats, including nearshore reefs, wrecks, channels, and drop-offs. These locations provide ample opportunities for anglers to target barracuda using a variety of techniques, such as casting lures, trolling, or live bait fishing. Anglers may also encounter barracuda while targeting other species, as they are opportunistic predators that will often strike at fast-moving lures or bait.

While barracuda can be caught throughout the year in Isla Morada, some anglers prefer to target them during specific times or conditions. For example, some may choose to fish for barracuda during the early morning or late afternoon hours when these fish are more active and feeding. Additionally, barracuda may be more abundant during certain lunar phases or tidal patterns, so anglers may plan their trips accordingly to maximize their chances of success. Overall, barracuda fishing in Isla Morada offers anglers a thrilling and rewarding experience, with plenty of opportunities to hook into these powerful and toothy predators.

What techniques are popular for catching barracuda in Islamorada?

In Isla Morada, anglers employ a variety of effective techniques to target barracuda. One popular method is trolling, where anglers tow lures or bait behind a moving boat at varying speeds. Brightly colored diving plugs and spoons are commonly used for trolling, mimicking the erratic movements of injured baitfish and enticing barracuda to strike. Anglers often adjust their trolling speed and depth to find the most productive zone where barracuda are feeding.

Another productive technique for barracuda fishing in Isla Morada is casting and retrieving lures. Anglers use a variety of lures, including shiny spoons, flashy jigs, and soft plastic swimbaits, to mimic the movements of baitfish. By casting these lures near structure, such as reefs, wrecks, or drop-offs, anglers can entice barracuda hiding in ambush spots. Retrieving the lure with a fast and erratic motion often triggers aggressive strikes from these predatory fish.

Live bait fishing is also a popular method for targeting barracuda in Isla Morada. Anglers use live baits such as pilchards, mullet, or ballyhoo rigged on wire leaders to prevent bite-offs from barracuda's sharp teeth. Live bait can be fished near the surface or suspended at various depths using floats or downriggers. Anglers often free-line live baits or drift them naturally with the current to entice barracuda into striking. This method allows anglers to cover a larger area and present a natural-looking bait to barracuda, increasing the chances of a hookup.

What other species are popular in Islamorada?

In addition to barracuda, Isla Morada offers a diverse range of fish species for anglers to target. One popular species is the mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado. These colorful and acrobatic fish are often found in offshore waters, particularly around floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures. Anglers commonly troll with brightly colored lures or pitch live baits to entice mahi-mahi into striking. Known for their aerial displays and fast-paced fights, mahi-mahi provide an exciting angling experience.

Another sought-after species in Isla Morada is the yellowtail snapper. These tasty fish inhabit reefs, wrecks, and other structure-rich areas, making them accessible to both boat and shore anglers. Yellowtail snapper are typically targeted using light tackle and live bait such as pilchards, shrimp, or cut bait. Anglers employ a variety of techniques, including bottom fishing and drift fishing, to entice yellowtail snapper into biting. Their delicious flesh and challenging behavior make them a favorite among recreational anglers in Isla Morada.

Additionally, Isla Morada offers excellent opportunities for anglers to target grouper species such as black grouper, red grouper, and gag grouper. These bottom-dwelling fish are commonly found around reefs, ledges, and rocky structures in offshore waters. Anglers often use live bait, dead bait, or jigging techniques to entice grouper into striking. Grouper fishing requires heavy tackle and strong fishing techniques to reel in these powerful and stubborn fish. With their impressive size and fighting abilities, grouper provide an exciting challenge for anglers exploring the waters of Isla Morada.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    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....

    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

    Damn great time on the water with Ben. He was willing to quickly adjust to last minute changes (remember, when you are replying to messages from Captain Experiences they might not get to the guide you are using through them). Ben got us into multiple species of fish using various methods of angling. When our time was up, we had a few "keepers" that Ben filleted up for us. It was a perfect day on the water. Thanks for the great time Ben and, more importantly, thank you for your service to our country! DO NOT HESITATE to book a trip with Ben.

    We had the best experience with Andrew. He’s a born and raised in Key Largo local and he put us on a bunch of spots where fish were biting. He was so patient when we got tangled or lost our bait and was just in general super friendly and helpful. You can tell he spends his days on the water because there’s no place he’d rather be. And he also cleaned our fish with an amazing alacrity and gave us excellent recommendations on where we could have it cooked for us by highly acclaimed local chefs. It wasn’t just fishing, Andrew was the whole package.
