Florida Keys Offshore Fishing

Where many locations require long distance runs to get to the fishing grounds, great fishing starts 10 minutes from the dock! Under the right conditions, anything from Blue Marlin to Great White Sharks have been spotted off the reef, less than 10 miles from shore!

Specializing in live bait fishing, Captain Nate and the Waypoint fishing crew work very hard to capitalize on every opportunity. Although fishing changes just as fast as the weather, primary targeted species include Sailfish, Cobia, Dolphin, Tuna, and Wahoo.



Florida Keys Reef and Wreck Fishing

Hundreds of species make refuge in these habitats including Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, Amberjacks, Kingfish and many many more. Generally reef and wreck fishing is your best bet to guarantee something on the dinner table.



Florida Keys Inshore Flats and Tarpon Fishing

If battling hard fighting fish without having to battle the high seas, then tarpon/flats fishing is your game. There are not too many fish that combine power, speed, and the acrobatic ability that a tarpon does. The Florida Keys are one of the best destinations in the world to tangle with these ancient relics from the past. Their willingness to eat a fly makes them that much better. 

Stalking "tailing" Bonefish and Permit in the super shallow water is one of the most addictive pursuits in the industry. Other great targeted species include Snook, Redfish, Seatrout, Snappers, Jacks, Sharks and Barracudas.
