Drifting the reefs will produce a variety of fish on our Florida kayak fishing charters. An arrangement of live and dead bait will produce Mutton, Yellowtail, Mangrove, Vermillion, Lane snappers. Snapper range in weight from 1-15lbs depending on the species. The Mutton snapper tops the list as the biggest. May through November is the best time of year to target all species of the snapper family.
Cobia are found on the beaches, reefs and shallow water wrecks off South Florida. Bouncing the bottom with a large buck tail jig tipped with dead bait works well to put these guys in the kayak. It is not uncommon to also pick up one trolling on one of our Offshore Kayak Fishing trips as well. The best time of year for Cobia fishing is February through May.
Amberjack and Almaco jacks are targeted on the deeper wrecks in 120-250 foot of water. Vertical jigging is a very effective technique in bringing these bruisers up to the surface. Be ready for a fight as these guys pull hard! These guys are around all year, but the summer months are the best. Call to Book Your Trip!
