Wreck & Reef Fishing
When you fish in Key West, you are very lucky indeed. It’s not just because the island is warm and beautiful all the time. Not just because there have been over 600 IGFA world record fish caught in the surrounding waters. No, not even because you’re going to be on vacation while you are here. But because, Key West is home to the worlds third largest living coral reef (only Austrailia and Belieze have larger ones.)
Reef fishing can yield some of the best table fare imaginable. Grouper, snapper, mackerel, and others are routinely taken for dinner. Dinner for six coming right up! With hundreds of different species living on our reef, you never really know what you’ll catch next.
As an added bonus, most of Key West’s world famous restaurants will cook your catch for you. That’s right just bring them the already filleted fish, (the mates on your fishing charter will provide this service), and they will prepare it for you most any way you like it. It’s a really fun thing to do. Talk about fresh?
Another really fun thing to do is to take a bait, and drop it down on one of the several hundred wrecks that surround Key West waters. Jacks of all types, grouper, snapper, shark, and other denizens of the deep are regular visitors to these underwater structures.
Key West has been called “the gateway to the Gulf of Mexico”, as all shipping has to pass by Key West on their way to the Gulf. Whether you want to go to Texas, Alabama, Louisiana , or even the west coast of Florida, if you go by water, you have to go around Key West. As a result, the bottom here is peppered with sunken ships of all kinds. Everything from shrimp boats and airplanes to destroyers and freighters.
