If you're ready to take on big-time gamefish such as Blackfin Tuna, Red Snapper, Wahoo, and Sailfish, then you'll love this trip with Captain Jeremy! He'll be taking you offshore on board his 35' Cabo Express sportfisher, a luxury vessel that's purpose-built for serious fishing! The Florida Keys are a world-famous fishing destination, and and for a good reason! The surrounding waters are teeming with some of the most sought-after game fish in the Gulf, as well as tons of inshore and nearshore species.

When you get a bite, be prepared for a fight, as these fish can grow to incredible sizes and put up a real battle! While Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Sailfish are the primary targets, you may also encounter other species such Wahoo, all of which can provide an exciting fight and make for a memorable catch. In between catches, take the time to enjoy the stunning scenery and wildlife that surrounds you, including dolphins, sea turtles, and seabirds. An offshore fishing charter with Captain Jeremy out of Key Largo, FL, is an unforgettable experience that combines the beauty of the Florida Keys with the thrill of the chase.

What is bluefish fishing in Key Largo all about?

Bluefish, known for their voracious appetite and aggressive feeding behavior, are a common sight in the waters around Key Largo. These sleek and powerful predators are highly migratory, often traveling in schools along the Atlantic coast and into the Gulf of Mexico. In Key Largo, bluefish can be found patrolling nearshore waters, channels, and flats, making them accessible targets for anglers of all skill levels. With their sharp teeth and relentless strikes, bluefish provide anglers with an exhilarating fishing experience and a thrilling battle once hooked.

Fishing for bluefish in Key Largo is typically productive year-round, with peak seasons occurring during the cooler months when water temperatures are more favorable. During these times, bluefish are more active and tend to feed aggressively on baitfish and other prey species. Anglers targeting bluefish often use a variety of fishing techniques, including casting with artificial lures such as spoons, plugs, or jigs, as well as live bait fishing with mullet, pilchards, or shrimp. Bluefish are known for their willingness to strike a wide range of offerings, making them a versatile and exciting species to target in the waters of Key Largo.

Moreover, bluefish are prized for their excellent taste and can be prepared in various culinary dishes, adding to their appeal among anglers and seafood enthusiasts. Whether fishing from a boat or shore, anglers can enjoy the thrill of hooking into a hard-fighting bluefish while soaking in the scenic beauty of Key Largo's coastal waters. With their aggressive strikes and powerful runs, bluefish provide anglers with a memorable fishing experience and a delicious reward to savor after a successful day on the water.

What are the most popular months to fish for bluefish in Key Largo?

In Key Largo, the seasons play a significant role in the presence and activity levels of bluefish, providing anglers with optimal times to target these voracious predators. Bluefish can be found in Key Largo's waters year-round, but their abundance and behavior vary with the changing seasons. Generally, the most productive seasons for bluefish fishing coincide with the cooler months of fall, winter, and early spring. During these times, bluefish are more active and tend to congregate in greater numbers nearshore, making them more accessible targets for anglers.

Fall marks the beginning of prime bluefish season in Key Largo, as cooling temperatures stimulate increased activity among these migratory predators. From September to November, anglers can often find bluefish feeding voraciously on baitfish schools along the beaches, channels, and flats. As winter approaches, bluefish fishing remains productive, with the fish continuing to inhabit nearshore waters and feed aggressively. Additionally, early spring offers excellent opportunities for targeting bluefish, as they migrate northward along the Atlantic coast and into the Gulf of Mexico in search of food and spawning grounds.

Moreover, while bluefish can still be encountered during the warmer months in Key Largo, their behavior may change as water temperatures rise. During the summer months, bluefish may move offshore or seek cooler waters, requiring anglers to adjust their fishing techniques and target different areas to locate them. Additionally, paying attention to factors such as tidal movements, water clarity, and baitfish activity can help anglers pinpoint the most productive spots for targeting bluefish throughout the seasons. By adapting to the seasonal shifts and understanding the habits of bluefish, anglers can increase their chances of success and enjoy thrilling fishing experiences in the waters of Key Largo.

What techniques are popular for catching bluefish in Key Largo?

Bluefish fishing in Key Largo offers anglers an exhilarating experience, with several effective techniques to employ. One popular method for targeting bluefish is casting with artificial lures such as spoons, plugs, or jigs. These shiny and flashy lures mimic the movement of baitfish, attracting bluefish with their aggressive feeding behavior. Anglers can cast their lures into areas with active feeding activity, such as nearshore waters, channels, or flats where bluefish are known to patrol. Retrieving the lure with erratic movements can trigger strikes from bluefish, providing anglers with an exciting and dynamic fishing experience.

Another successful technique for bluefish fishing in Key Largo is live bait fishing using natural offerings such as mullet, pilchards, or shrimp. Anglers can rig their baits on circle hooks or J-hooks and present them near the surface or along the bottom in areas where bluefish are actively feeding. Bluefish are voracious predators and will eagerly attack live bait, providing anglers with thrilling strikes and explosive action once hooked. It's essential to vary the depth and presentation of the bait to determine where the bluefish are feeding most actively and adjust accordingly to maximize success.

Moreover, trolling can also be an effective technique for targeting bluefish in Key Largo, particularly when covering larger areas or searching for schools of actively feeding fish. Anglers can troll with artificial lures or rigged baits behind a boat at varying speeds to entice bluefish into striking. Paying attention to factors such as water temperature, current flow, and baitfish activity can help anglers locate productive trolling areas where bluefish are likely to be found. By experimenting with different trolling speeds and lure presentations, anglers can increase their chances of success when targeting bluefish in the diverse and dynamic waters of Key Largo.

What other species are popular in Key Largo?

In addition to bluefish, Key Largo offers anglers a diverse range of species to target, ensuring an exciting and varied fishing experience. One notable catch is the prized bonefish, often referred to as the "ghost of the flats" for its elusive nature and challenging fight. These silver torpedoes inhabit the shallow flats and mangrove-lined channels of Key Largo, making sight fishing a popular and rewarding technique for anglers looking to hook into one of these prized catches. Using lightweight tackle and presenting small, natural-looking flies or shrimp imitations can entice bonefish to strike, providing anglers with an exhilarating pursuit in the clear, shallow waters of Key Largo.

Another exciting species to target in Key Largo is the mighty tarpon, known for its impressive size and acrobatic leaps. Tarpon fishing in Key Largo is a thrilling experience, particularly during the warmer months when these prehistoric giants migrate to the area in search of spawning grounds. Anglers can target tarpon in the backcountry channels, along the flats, and near bridges and passes, using live bait such as mullet or artificial lures like swimbaits and topwater plugs. Hooking into a tarpon is a test of an angler's skill and endurance, promising an unforgettable battle and memories to last a lifetime.

Moreover, Key Largo offers opportunities to target a variety of reef fish species, including snapper, grouper, and mackerel. These fish can be found inhabiting the intricate reef structures and rocky outcroppings that dot the underwater landscape, providing anglers with ample opportunities for exciting and productive fishing outings. Whether fishing from a boat or shore, anglers can employ a range of techniques including bottom fishing, trolling, and casting with artificial lures to target these diverse reef inhabitants. Each species presents its own unique challenge and rewards, adding to the excitement and allure of fishing in Key Largo's bountiful waters.

    Captain Justin was great!!! He put us on the fish all day. Wide open fishing, we caught 5 different types of fish. Captain Justin did a great job taking photos, sharing information and showing us some wildlife. There were lots of alligators.

    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.
