Reef Fishing

Too Lethal

Too Lethal Charters

About six miles from Key West is North America’s only living coral barrier reef. It starts near Miami and extends to the Dry Tortugas, about 67 miles west of Key West. It hosts over 150 species of fish in a sportsman’s mecca of waters that are typically between 15-30 feet deep.

The reef is filled with barracudas, black groupers and yellowtail snappers. You’ll also find mackerel, a mix of sailfish and tuna, depending on the season. During the winter months, the population of the reef increases as fish come in escaping the colder waters up north. There have been more than 1,000 world record fish taken from the waters around Key West.

On every trip you’ll be expected to join in. From baiting the hooks to steering the boat, when you’re on a smaller charter you’re always in the middle of the action.

I don’t charge separately for fuel, it’s included in the price. It doesn’t matter if you want to head far out for an offshore excursion or stay closer and cruise the backcountry. There are no surprises at the end. If you’re considering other charters, make sure to ask if they’re charging extra for the fuel.

The most likely fish you will find while reef fishing include: 

African Pompano, Amber Jack, Banded Rudderfish, Barracuda, Black Fin Tuna, Blue Fish, Cobia, Grey Snapper, Grouper, Hog Fish, Jack Crevale, Kingfish, Lane Snapper, Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Mutton Snapper, Permit, Red Snapper, Spear Fish, Triggerfish, Wahoo, White Marlin and Yellowtail.

Wind and weather dictate which areas are going to provide the best opportunities. Let me know what you’re trying to catch, and I’ll do my best to make it happen.
