Combo Fishing Trips
Reef Fishing Combined with Offshore
Our “Combo” trips allow you to combine Reef fishing with Wreck and/or Offshore fishing in one day! This is a fantastic way to get a more complete Florida Keys charter fishing experience on your trip. A combo is a charter that often gives you a much better chance of catching fish mostly from October-April because it combines several types of fishing in one trip. The Keys is the only place in the world that allows you to experience two or three different types of fishing on the same charter even on half days. Combos increase your chances of having a successful charter and more variety in your catch by a wide margin.
Want to get catch some tasty Yellowtail Snapper on the reef for dinner before you head offshore to look for a Sailfish, Tuna, Mahi or Wahoo? Or maybe you want to warm up on some Mangrove Snappers before heading to the Wrecks to drop baits for hard fighting Amberjacks (60-100lbs) and Mutton Snappers (10-20lbs). Have kids with you? Reef fishing is a great way to get them comfortable winding on fish before heading Offshore for some adrenaline pumping action. Whatever the reason a Combo is a great way to start your morning off with some reef fishing on anchor first and then head out to deeper water to hunt for some big ones!
Reef Fishing in the Florida Keys
Reef fishing is a fun and economical way to fill up the box with delicious tasting fish. You can have a great catch on a half day and the cost is lower due to less travel time and being on anchor instead of burning fuel throughout the entire trip. Reef fishing is also an excellent way to start off your day before heading off to the Wrecks or Offshore for a Combo trip. Reef fishing is recommended for families and novice anglers just starting to get into fishing although many of our experienced regular customers absolutely love to fish the reef with us too.
While the average size of fish caught on the reef is a bit smaller than offshore we do catch big fish while doing it which is often an exciting surprise to our Anglers. We catch Yellowtail, Mangrove, and Mutton Snapper on the reef as well as King, Cero and Spanish Mackerel.
