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.

What is red grouper fishing in Islamorada all about?

Red grouper is a popular species among anglers in Isla Morada, known for its delicious flavor and challenging fight. These vibrant fish can be found inhabiting the reefs and rocky bottoms of the Florida Keys, including the waters surrounding Isla Morada. Red grouper are typically caught using bottom fishing techniques, with anglers targeting them using bait such as squid, cut fish, or live baitfish. Fishing around underwater structures such as coral reefs, ledges, and shipwrecks increases the likelihood of hooking into a red grouper, as these areas provide ideal habitat for these fish to hide and ambush prey.

In terms of seasons, red grouper can be caught year-round in Isla Morada, although their abundance may vary depending on factors such as water temperature and weather conditions. However, the best time to target red grouper is often during the cooler months of fall and winter when these fish are more active and feeding closer to shore. During this time, anglers can find red grouper in shallower waters, making them more accessible to both recreational and commercial fishermen. Additionally, red grouper tend to migrate offshore during the warmer months, making them less predictable in terms of location and abundance.

Anglers targeting red grouper in Isla Morada typically use medium to heavy tackle to handle these strong and stubborn fish. Bottom fishing rigs with circle hooks or J-hooks are commonly used to target red grouper, along with conventional or spinning reels loaded with braided or monofilament fishing line. Patience and persistence are key when fishing for red grouper, as these fish often take refuge in rocky crevices or ledges, requiring anglers to carefully maneuver their bait to entice a strike. Once hooked, red grouper put up a spirited fight, testing the angler's skill and endurance as they attempt to reel in these prized reef dwellers.

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

Red grouper, a sought-after species among anglers in Isla Morada, can be found in the waters surrounding the Florida Keys year-round. However, their abundance and behavior may vary depending on the season. In general, the best time to target red grouper in Isla Morada is during the cooler months of fall and winter. As temperatures drop, red grouper become more active and move closer to shore, making them more accessible to anglers fishing from both boats and shorelines. During this time, anglers have a higher chance of encountering larger concentrations of red grouper as they feed on baitfish and crustaceans around the reefs and rock formations.

Spring and summer can also be productive seasons for red grouper fishing in Isla Morada, although their behavior may be less predictable compared to the cooler months. During the warmer months, red grouper tend to migrate offshore to deeper waters, where they may be found on ledges, wrecks, and other underwater structures. Anglers targeting red grouper during these seasons may need to venture farther offshore and employ different fishing techniques to locate and hook into these prized fish. Despite the challenges posed by warmer water temperatures and changing migration patterns, skilled anglers can still find success targeting red grouper during the spring and summer months in Isla Morada.

While red grouper can be caught year-round in Isla Morada, understanding their seasonal patterns and behavior can greatly improve an angler's chances of success. Whether fishing from a boat or casting from shore, anglers should pay attention to water temperature, weather conditions, and tidal movements to determine the best times and locations to target red grouper. By adapting their fishing strategies to suit the season, anglers can enjoy rewarding experiences and potentially reel in some impressive catches of red grouper in the beautiful waters of Isla Morada.

What techniques are popular for catching red grouper in Islamorada?

Fishing for red grouper in Isla Morada requires anglers to employ a variety of techniques to entice these elusive fish. One of the most popular methods is bottom fishing using live or cut bait. Anglers typically anchor their boats near reefs, rock formations, or other underwater structures where red grouper are known to congregate. Using heavy tackle and a bottom rig with a weight to keep the bait on the seabed, anglers drop their lines to the bottom and wait for a bite. Live bait such as pinfish, grunts, or mullet can be particularly effective in enticing red grouper, although cut bait like squid or mullet can also produce results.

Another effective technique for targeting red grouper in Isla Morada is jigging. This involves using heavy jigs or metal lures that mimic the movement of injured baitfish. Anglers jig their lures near the bottom, allowing them to flutter and bounce off the seabed, which can trigger a predatory response from hungry red grouper. Jigging can be especially productive when fishing over rocky bottoms or near ledges and drop-offs where red grouper are known to hide. By varying the speed and depth of their jigging motion, anglers can experiment to find the most effective presentation for enticing red grouper to strike.

Trolling is another popular technique used by anglers targeting red grouper in Isla Morada, especially when fishing in deeper waters offshore. Anglers troll with deep-diving lures or diving plugs that dive down to the depths where red grouper are likely to be found. By covering a large area and presenting their lures at different depths and speeds, anglers increase their chances of encountering red grouper actively feeding or patrolling the area. Trolling can be particularly effective when targeting larger red grouper, as it allows anglers to cover more ground and locate productive fishing spots where these prized fish are lurking.

What other species are popular in Islamorada?

Apart from red grouper, Isla Morada offers anglers a diverse array of fish species to target. One popular species among recreational fishermen is the yellowtail snapper. These vibrant-colored fish are known for their delicious taste and challenging fight, making them a sought-after catch. Yellowtail snapper can be found around reefs, wrecks, and rocky outcroppings, where they feed on small baitfish and crustaceans. Anglers often use light tackle and live bait such as shrimp or pilchards to entice yellowtail snapper, employing a combination of finesse and patience to reel in these elusive fish.

Another prized species in Isla Morada is the mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado. These colorful and acrobatic fish are commonly found offshore in warmer waters, where they patrol weed lines, floating debris, and other surface structures in search of prey. Mahi-mahi are known for their fast strikes and aerial leaps, providing anglers with an exhilarating fishing experience. Anglers often target mahi-mahi by trolling with lures or live bait, covering large areas of open water in search of feeding schools. Once hooked, mahi-mahi put up a spirited fight, testing the angler's skill and equipment to the limit.

Additionally, Isla Morada offers opportunities to target species such as king mackerel, wahoo, and blackfin tuna. These pelagic predators are commonly found offshore, where they hunt for schools of baitfish in deeper waters. King mackerel, known for their speed and powerful runs, are often targeted by anglers trolling with live bait or artificial lures. Wahoo, prized for their speed and delicious meat, are typically caught by high-speed trolling with lures or rigged baits. Blackfin tuna, known for their strength and stamina, are often targeted by anglers trolling with small lures or live baitfish. Overall, Isla Morada provides anglers with a diverse range of fishing opportunities, catering to both novice and experienced fishermen alike.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    Chris was a great captain. Found water out of the wind. Found plenty of fish. Chis was cheerful and very helpful with baiting hooks and boating fish. Very hardworking captain. His boat was immaculate and he gave us a quick safety course before we launched.

    Had an absolute blast with Captain Chris! He was so nice and his passion and love for fishing made my bachelorette trip worthwhile! 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!!!

    Elizabeth G. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We had a great full day trip with Captain Chris. Chris really helped my wife with his patience and encouragement fight big fish in deep water and use lighter tackle at the shallower wreck. She landed nice yellowtail, yellow jack, mackerel and amberjack. Chris worked hard all day keeping us in fish and rigged as the shark tax was high though the morning. At the end of the day we got great local restaurant recommendations and tips on cooking our catch. Loved the boat playlist! Highly recommend and hope to come back to fish with Chris again.

    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.

    Captain Chris was amazing! He taught everyone how to properly fish and catch fish. We caught plenty of fish even though he said it was a light day. We were pretty excited to get a wide variety of fish including a couple different groupers and some nurse sharks. Hopefully his new term for the nurse shark will follow him on many voyages to come! We all had a great time would totally recommend and would love to come back!

    Pete and his wife could not have been any nicer and their boat was perfect. Pete kept us on the water longer than our trip was scheduled for trying to put some fish in the boat (we caught 1 tile fish and 3 vermillion that were just over 12 inches) I know the captain cannot control the bite as I have been on 100’s of charters however we fished with one rod the entire day! It was an electric reel since we were fishing in 600 plus feet of water. I spent almost the entire day watching my girlfriend dropping her line down and flipping the switch to bring it back up. That certainly is not what we had in mind when we booked the trip. We should have had two rods to fish with and moved into the reefs for some snapper, yellow tail or something but to deep drop the entire with one rig and zero activity was really disappointing.

    Jason C. with Pete R. of Islamorada, Florida

    Pete and Chisty were great. Although we did not catch any keepers, we had a great time trying

    William I. with Pete R. of Islamorada, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Pete and his deck mate Christie had a beautiful boat and despite the hot weather kept us in shade and cool! Fishing was admittedly slow today, but that didn’t keep Captain Pete from putting onto Mahi! Thanks for a great day with my boys that I will always treasure Greg

    Greg B. with Pete R. of Islamorada, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We had a great day fishing with Capt. Pete and Christy! Our teenager got his first deep sea fishing experience and reeled in a couple huge tilefish, which made for a great dinner that evening and we had plenty more to take home. We would definitely take another trip with Capt. Pete and Christy on our next trip to the area and I'll recommend them to others.

    Charity P. with Pete R. of Islamorada, Florida

    Great time! Captain Pete and his wife were a great time! We will come back for sure!

    We had a blast! Captain Pete made sure we caught some great reef fish. We caught 2 Spanish mackerel, a yellow trail, a barracuda (large and mean), and a few others. It was so much fun! My 16 year old that loves to fish in Nebraska has the best time!
