If you're looking for a fun and exciting way to explore the natural beauty of the United States, then deep sea fishing in the Florida Keys is the perfect activity for you. November marks the start of the Key West Fishing Tournament, one of the most popular fishing tournaments in the Keys. Many Keys guides go on vacation in October, so be sure to book a charter months in advance if you plan to fish. I had a lot of fun and would highly recommend Captain Jeff and Catch 'Em All Sportfishing Charters to anyone interested in having a great time out on the water catching fish.
Fishing is a big industry in the Florida Keys, so it's no wonder you can find charter boats scattered around the islands, from Key Largo to Key West. Steven Lamp, a veteran Key West fishing guide, offers 4.6 and 8-hour deep-sea fishing trips aboard the 32-foot Yellowfin Intense. I've been fishing for a long time and I've been out with Captain Jeff a couple of times, he knows what he's doing and will make sure you have a great time and he'll catch lots of fish and take home good memories. So-called full-day fishing trips are suitable for experienced anglers who want to catch a trophy fish during their trips to Key West. A solo trip is worth considering if you're a professional fisherman and want to catch a trophy fish during your fishing trips to Key West.
However, it's important to note that these trips can be quite expensive, so it's important to do your research before booking one. To help you out, here are some tips on how much it costs to go deep sea fishing in the Florida Keys:
- Charter boats typically charge an hourly rate for their services, which can range from $200-$500 per hour depending on the size of the boat and number of people.
- Full-day trips usually cost around $1,000-$2,000 depending on the type of boat and number of people.
- If you're looking for a more affordable option, there are plenty of smaller boats available that offer half-day trips for around $500-$800.
- It's also important to factor in additional costs such as bait, tackle, fuel, and any other supplies you may need.
