The gulf stream is considered offshore waters the deep blue color in the water is another way of distinguishing offshore waters from reef waters. Depending on the time of the year offshore pelagic fish like mahi-mahi, tuna, and wahoo can be targeted by trolling, sight fishing, and live baiting. Deep sea bottom fishing around ledges and large structures from 400- 850 ft is an effective way of catching exotic species like queen snapper, tilefish, rosefish, and snowy grouper. Swordfish can be found in 1600- 2200 ft.
Offshore and deep-sea fishing can be done on our 52” Viking Sportfish, 42” Yellowfin, or 34” Yellowfin. Due to the extended boat ride to the fishing grounds make sure to book a six- or eight-hour trip to allow enough time to get on the fish on your next fishing charter in Marathon, FL.
