Look for a trip that allows you to go Offshore, and do any type of fishing. I prefer a reef and wreck / Offshore combo tour. I prefer 6 hours. I also prefer a boat that is 30 feet or longer. If you are fishing with children or females look for a toilet on board. I also prefer to have a charter with a first mate.

I know that there are better times of the year to fish the Florida Keys but the fishing in late January 2022 was great. The advantage of fishing in January/February is the wonderful weather with air temperature in the low 70's and water temperature in the mid 70's.

Make sure you get a guide that knows where to go for the fish. Our guy did not. We went on a fishing trip with a guy from our campground and caught a load of fish. So it's all in knowing how and where the fish are going to be.

Find a Captain with a first mate and book a six hour Offshore/reef/wreck combo. If you are going with children and/or females look for a charter book with a toilet. Try to get above a 30 foot boat.

July is hot and can be a slow time to fish. Be sure you know if your targeted fish are here when you plan the time of your trip.

Get a guide like Captain Buddy LaPointe that knows exactly where the fish are running at any time of the year or day.

Take your time, fish in shore and near shore on your own, but make sure to take an off shore charter!

Scrutinize the captain closely. The captain we thought we hired was in Michigan chartering fishing trips. His business won't last long down here if he doesn't clean up his act.

Sure. We have fished here on 3 prior occasions with fun and success. This was the one bad experience, and was due to the captain.

If it is not a calm day and you can’t go to the reef or the hump, don’t go out.

Check what's in season first if you have your heart set on a particular species of fish.

I feel that if fishing is the #1 priority then perhaps go to a specific fishing charter only guide.

Make sure you tell the Capt what you want to do and he will make sure you get your fish.

Make arrangements to ship fish home ahead of time. Also check with the airlines.
