Tavernier Fishing Charters

Tavernier's location in the tropical waters off of the southern tip of Florida make it an incredible fishing destination for all types of anglers. There are quite literally unlimited places to fish in the Southern Glades, just a quick boat ride away from Tavernier. Mangrove-lined backcountry waters, sandbars, and open water flats and bays provide some of the best inshore fishing in the world.

Just offshore from Tavernier are artificial and natural reefs teeming with life. Further out, there are tremendous bluewater fishing grounds, with some trips even going out to the Bahamas! Regardless of your skill level or age, our Tavernier fishing guides provide you a trip for the ages.

Tavernier Inshore Fishing

Just taking a look at a map of Tavernier and the surrounding waters is enough to get the inshore angler's adrenaline pumping. Located just a short boat ride away are mangrove forests, sandbars, bays, and flats - a backcountry angler's dream. If you want to chase Mangrove Snapper or Redfish in the skinny backwaters, or target Tarpon, Bonefish, Snook, or Permit in the bays and flats - a Tavernier inshore fishing trip is exactly what you are looking for.

The coldest Tavernier gets in the winter is around 60 degrees, which is a perfect time to cruise the flats for Permit. As the spring brings around warmer weather, Tarpon, Bonefish, Redfish, and Snook are readily available to take your bait. For those targeting the coveted Bonefish, the month of September tends to be the most productive. Redfish move into shallower waters beginning in fall and staying through the winter. This is an excellent time to sight fish for Reds in skinny water.
