OFFSHORE FISHING / DEEP SEA FISHING
When we use the term “offshore”, we are referring to gulfstream fishing, which usually is found in depths of 400 feet and greater. In Islamorada this means that you are typically at least 12 miles from shore, which puts you out of sight of land. There are a variety of species as well as tactics found in this particular fishery. The most common fish being pursued are dolphin(mahi-mahi), wahoo, blackfin and skipjack tuna, as well as amberjack. However, there are billfish lurking in these waters such as sailfish, blue marlin, white marlin, and spearfish.
Offshore fishing in the Florida Keys is a one of a kind experience!
When offshore fishing, there are many different species of game fish located in the blue waters off the Florida Keys, and that is what makes fishing Islamorada an unforgettable experience!
