Let Coastal Outfitters show you Tavernier’s incredible, diverse fishing. From inshore backwaters, through the shallow reefs, out to the deep wrecks – the Keys has it all. Captain Michael Raspanti is a second-generation Floridian fisherman. Having fished all over the region, he settled on the Keys and has been running charters since the age of 20. A people person, he’ll make sure that each trip is personalized to your heart’s desires.
For such an array of fishing grounds, you’re in need of a versatile boat. The 26’ Sportscraft center console has a freshwater wash closet and plenty of space for up to 6 guests to relax and to fish at the same time, so you know you’re in for a smooth ride aboard.
When it comes to the fishing, you’ll use the latest Shimano rods and reels, and a range of artificial lures and bait. Inshore trips will take you to the shallow waters in search of some serious game fish. Tarpon and Snook are high on any angler’s list, while you’ll also get the chance to go after Trout, Permit, Redfish, and more.
Hit the reefs, and you’ll have the chance to discover a whole new world underneath you. There’s enough equipment for all aboard, as you marvel at the dazzling colors of Snappers, the size of the Groupers, and the speed of Barracudas, among more. Try bottom fishing with light tackle for the most fun, trying to hook a delicious meal aboard to take home.
You even have the opportunity of fishing at night for some of the ocean’s most feared creatures – Sharks! These waters really do have it all, so come and explore with Coastal Outfitters. Water and ice is provided, and your fishing license is taken care of. All that’s left for you to do is bring some snacks, drinks, sunscreen, and the desire to get your fish on. Unbeatable fishing awaits.
