Mahi Mahi, Tuna, King Fish, Wahoo, Sail Fish and Shark.  Closer to the mainland South Florida is scattered with Tropical Reefs which are homes to numerous fish including Snapper, Grouper, Yellow Tail, Lobster and Barracuda.  Inshore fishing can include large Tarpon as well as Bone Fish and Snook.  Always check the latest Fishing Regulations for size, bag and seasonal limitations.


The Florida Keys Humps

A real treat is to experience fishing the Florida Keys along The Hump line.  A 50-mile stretch from Key Largo to Marathon hold  4 Humps that rise above the sea floor creating a haven for many migratory marine animals and pelagics like dolphin, wahoo, amberjack, blackfin tuna, billfish and other gamefish which come to feed on the smaller fish and sealife.
