Offshore and Deep Sea Fishing Charters in the Florida Keys

Charter fishing in Marathon’s deep blue waters of the offshore can be some of best fun you can have. Just seeing the fish light up when they’re excited from feeding beside the boat and against the deep blue waters is breathtaking. Watching a sailfish whack at your baits before he eats and goes off on a blistering run, tail walking across the water, hounding in and out of the ocean is extremely exhilarating. Seeing a school of dolphin beside the boat just waiting to take your baits is a very heart pounding experience. Watching the school of blackfin tuna bust the surface eating baits underneath flying birds can be one the most beautiful things you’ll ever see.

The best thing about charter fishing with Coral Charters is that you don’t need any previous experience or skill fishing our offshore waters – I will show you and tell you how to catch all of these fish here in Marathon in the Florida Keys. Offshore…Out to the deep blue waters we go. This is where we target all of our offshore species that include dolphin, tuna, wahoo, sailfish, Triple tail, and Blue Marlin.

The Importance of a Well-Trained Eye

Most of your fishing offshore is by eyesight. Whether it’s seeing birds like the all-important frigate bird working the top of the water or floating debris in the water or a big weed line of Sargasso weed, that’s where the fish should be.

It takes years of experience to be able to see the things necessary to hook up to the many different species of fish that you will find out there. Where most people don’t see the opportunity to fish – that’s were experience really pays off.

Most times you often see people just trolling open water hoping for a bite. I’m a firm believer in the more ground and water you cover the more fish you will be able to find and catch. Being able to spot birds from far distances takes a well-trained eye.

Also understanding the birds behavior on whether he’s looking for food or he has found the food makes a huge difference at the end of the day. Chasing a bird that’s looking for food means there’s most likely not any fish there. And wasting your time fishing where there are no fish just does not help the outcome of the day or fill the cooler.
