The Florida Keys is synonymous with fishing, and Tavernier is located directly between two of the hottest fishing spots in the Keys, Islamorada and Key Largo. This means that Tavernier Fishing Charters have many options to choose from for fishing trips. They can stay in the shallow backcountry with winding creeks and grassy flats, travel offshore to the nearby wrecks and reefs, or travel a little further to the Gulf Stream to fish for giant fish. Tavernier gets the best of both worlds. There are great flats fishing in and around Tavernier, but captains of the Tavernier Fishing Charters can head to the waters of Islamorada or Key Largo, depending on where the fish are biting. You can also book a trip into the Everglade National Park waters for great inshore fishing.
Snook, Bonefish, Permit, Redfish, Sea Trout and Tarpon are some of the most popular backcountry fish in the central Florida Keys. There are flats where you can find large bonefish and Permit tailing in the shallows. Bridges, mangroves and other structures are where Snook and Tarpon hide. Oyster beds, flat grassy bottoms and muddy water are where you can find Redfish and Sea Trout. There are two different “Slams” to try to hook up with; The Backcountry Fishing Slam – Snook-Redfish-Trout & The Flats Fishing Slam – Bonefish-Tarpon-Permit. Your Tavernier Fishing Charter can take families out for the quieter Backcountry Slam or anglers looking for the excitement of a Flats Fishing Slam. There is also excellent Shark fishing. One other possibility is a full day going to the Everglades National Park. This is a fun excursion filled with many of the same inshore fish just in a much different environment.
Nearshore are some great reefs surrounding the island and wrecks dotting the ocean bottom, where all kinds of the tastiest and fun-to-catch fish call home. Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish, Mackerel, Pompano, Tripletail, Barracuda, Amberjack and Sharks are some of them. You will have to travel to other areas sometimes wherever the fish are biting, and the local experienced captains of the Tavernier Fishing Charters will know where the fish are.
Offshore in the Gulf are trophy fish that every angler wants to land. There is great excitement when you board a full-day Tavernier Fishing Charter to battle with giant Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna and more. You can also deep drop for giant Grouper and Snapper and go Swordfish hunting day and night./i
Tavernier is a great place to plan a fishing trip. There are many fishing charters to book, like half-day and ¾ day backcountry and nearshore charters, which are great for families. Full or ¾ day backcountry trips will get you closer to a “Slam.” Full-day trips to the Gulf for the experienced angler. Or you can get the best of both worlds by taking a full day, going inshore for some aggressive inshore catches, and then offshore for Marlin, Mahi Mahi and Tuna. There are several marinas on the island. Here are many Tavernier Fishing Charters docked and ready to take you for an exciting day full of great fish and memories to last a lifetime.
