Key West Offshore Fishing

Offshore fishing in Key West Florida can be some of the best blue water fishing in the world. We love to use live bait such as Pilchards, Blue Runners, Threadfin Herring, or Goggle Eyes. By specializing in offshore live bait fishing it helps us produce big game species such as Sailfish, Marlin, Black fin Tuna, Yellow fin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, and many more. Our custom built boats with twin Yamaha outboards will get you offshore fast, comfortable, safe, and dry. We have state of the art electronics which ensure that we will put you on the fish quickly and comfortably, with more time for fishing. It also means that your captain will really be able to travel around quickly to where the big fish are.

Fishing The Key West Back Country

Key West is a sportsman’s paradise. With vast bonefish flats in the backcountry, hundreds of untouched mangrove islands to fish, and hidden channels inhabited by a huge variety of fish, it’s no wonder our Key West back country fishing charters are among the most popular trips we offer. For calmer waters and almost unlimited territory to fish, the Backcountry, or Gulf side of Key West offers anglers an exciting day of fishing that everyone will enjoy. Just take a look at what you can find in Key West’s back country: Sea trout, Snook, Mangrove snapper, Jack crevalle, Ladyfish, Tarpon, Sharks, Redfish, Bluefish and Spanish mackerel.

Reef Fishing

The wrecks and reef off the shores of Key West are simply loaded with fish, practically guaranteeing you’ll see nonstop fishing action on a reef and wreck charter. In fact, if your goal is catching as many fish as possible, this is how to go. North America’s only living coral reef stretches from Miami to the Dry Tortugas, about 70 miles west of Key West. The coral cover provides shelter for thousands of species, most importantly the tastiest of fish, grouper and snapper! For maximum haul potential, Key West reef fishing has long been and remains today the most popular type of charter if you’re serious about the amount of fish you want to bring in. Cool Cash Charters offers half day, three-quarters day, or full day charters to the wrecks and reef.

Wreck Fishing

There are over 200 wrecks around Key West on both the Atlantic Ocean side and the Gulf of Mexico side. These wrecks can be are loaded with a variety of fish all year long. Our charter fleet and captains have many years of experience fishing for trophy wreck fish such as : Black Grouper, Gag Grouper, Red Grouper, Mutton Snapper, Cobia, Black fin Tuna, Amberjack, Permit, African Pompano, Barracuda, Jewfish, Sharks and much more. Key West wreck fishing can produce nonstop action for everyone. Fishing the wrecks around Key West can produce both top water action and some of the best bottom fishing you have ever seen. We use spinning, conventional, and fly tackle when wreck fishing. It is not uncommon to catch 10-15 different species of fish while wreck fishing. Some of the wrecks we fish are old submarines, airplanes, shrimp boats, sailboats, and even old treasure ships. All of these wrecks can and will give your arms a workout.
