WRECK FISHING CHARTERS
Catch a monster of the deep!
Florida Keys Wreck and Deep Sea fishing
Wreck fishing is a type of offshore fishing because it requires being off anchor and that the motors stay running. What makes it different from standard offshore fishing is instead of driving around looking for signs of fish such as birds, weed lines and floaters near the surface, Jeff is targeting species of fish that live on or near the bottom. Instead of sight fishing or trolling, Captain Jeff uses his GPS and fish finder to drop baits near the bottom and target species that live on or near structures such as sunken ships, airplanes and rock caverns. Captain Jeff typically combines Reef fishing first thing in the morning with Wreck Fishing later on a 3/4 day 6 hour trip. This allows you to catch some smaller but very good eating fish first and then hunt for big fish to get yourself some great photos! Jeff offers a 3/4 Day Reef and Wreck fishing combo for online bookings but feel free to customize your trip with Jeff if you have further requirements.
What You Can Catch Wreck Fishing
Marathon, Florida is an excellent place to wreck fish. There many sunken boats, ships and even some airplanes that are home to very large hungry fish. There are also piles of bridge rubble from the construction of Marathon’s world famous Seven Mile Bridge that are home to many fish. Whether you are looking for some tasty large fish or just want to bend the rod and test your mettle against a huge grouper or a massive shark Captain Jeff can put you on the fish.
What You Can Catch Deep Sea Fishing
Deep Sea Variation
Want to go further out past the wrecks and look for fish in depths anywhere from 600-2000 feet? Captain Jeff can help you with that too! Below are some of the species you can catch in the really deep water with Captain Jeff, typically using using an electric reel. In very deep water, wind and current conditions have a major impact on how successful your trip will be. Because of this Jeff will also keep an eye out for opportunities to catch pelagic species such as Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish and Marlin to make sure you have a great catch.
Captain Jeff’s Promise
When you go fishing on my boat, we have the ability to fish all gamefish species in the entire Florida Keys region any day of the week. From Tarpon to Sailfish, from Goliath Groupers to Blue Marlin, the Catch ‘Em All is properly equipped to handle them all.
Capt. Jeff Shelar
Here’s what our happy anglers had to say about our charter:
Had a blast, and would highly recommend Captain Jeff and Catch ‘Em All Sportfishing Charters to anyone interested in a fun day on the water catching fish. Captain Jeff really DOES know how to catch them all — we got at least 12 different species! I will definitely be going back to fish!
Been fishing for a long time and have gone out with Capt Jeff a couple times, he knows his stuff and will make sure you have a great time and will catch a bunch of fish as well as take home some great memories. Can’t wait to do it many more times with Catch em all.
Caught about 50 fish 11 different species captain Jeff filleted them for us and advised Franks grill to take them to be cooked which we are doing tonight. Very patient with two novices even when I crossed my line. If you want a great fishing experience Captain Jeff is your man.
