Deep Drop Fishing In The Florida Keys

Deep dropping with electric reels is not by any means a new style of fishing. It has just gotten better.

While most people have never even heard of deep dropping, it is an extremely fun style of fishing that not many other charter fishing boats offer. The only reason the other charter boats do not offer it is because it can be expensive on tackle. I do offer it because I extremely enjoy deep drop fishing.

The reason it’s called Deep Drop Fishing is because you’re fishing in a depth of anywhere between 600 feet and 2000 feet deep on the bottom.

There have been fish caught out in the Atlantic off of Marathon, Florida that even the University of Miami and Mote Marine laboratory have never even seen before.

So you can expect to know what you’re going to catch but you still never know when that one fish may take the hook.

Another great reason for Deep Drop Fishing in the Florida Keys is it can add fish to your cooler while offshore fishing for other species like Dolphin, Tuna, wahoo, triple tail, and sailfish.
