The Florida Keys offers some of the best Reef fishing in not only the country but the world. The warm, nutrient waters in the Florida Keys provide a home to an abundance of fish. Reef fishing in the winter time usually means catching Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper, Mackerel, Barracuda, a variety of Sharks and sometimes even Sailfish! In the late winter and Spring reef fishing can also mean catching Cobia, Mutton Snapper and Wahoo. In the summertime, Captain Wayne will focus on offshore fishing for Mahi and Tuna but during the Mangrove Snapper spawn in July and August he will often take customers to the reef first thing in the morning to catch a limit of Mangrove Snapper before heading offshore.
The Florida Keys is home to a number of shipwrecks due to early on navigation through its shallows water. These create artificial eco-systems for marine life to call home. Much like a reef, a number of sport fish call these wrecks home or a feeding ground due to the influx of baitfish that are around. Captain Wayne knows all the wreck fishing spots the middle keys have to offer in addition to what to expect when fishing specific spots.
