Here in Islamorada, charter boat fishing is the number one activity for visitors during the springtime. It is no secret that our little “fishing village” can be very busy on the highway and on the water. A great way to beat the crowds and the heat is too fish the late afternoon/early evening trip. You will have a blast on our Islamorada Night Fishing charter!
A tradition that was started many years ago by the local Islamorada fishing guides, the “Night Tarpon Trip“, was created to give anglers the best chances to catch the giant Silver King while drifting live bait around our world famous bridges and passes. The Tarpon is by design a nocturnal feeder and the magic hour of sunset to twilight can be an angler’s best friend when it comes to Tarpon fishing.
Nowadays with faster, more reliable boats, better navigational equipment, and daytime heavy fishing pressure, an evening trip can be used to target many different fisheries. Leaving the dock at 4-5pm and returning between 8:30-9pm can give you the chance to spend the day on the island, get your fishing fix in and still be home in time for dinner. These trips can target not only Tarpon, but Sharks, Bonefish, Trout, Snappers, etc. giving the whole family a chance to fish while the majority of the crowds are off the water and the air temperature is refreshing. Throw in a couple of adult beverages and a beautiful sunset to boot and that is what vacation in the Florida Keys is all about.
These trips are four hours long and are readily available starting right after the spring “time change” usually around April 1st and run through Sept 1st.
Are you not an early riser? Do you not like the heat? Got to many other FUN things to do during the day in the Florida Keys? Did you have too much FUN the night before? There is an endless list of reasons why daytime fishing might not work for you while you are here in the Florida Keys on vacation.
