An Offshore fishing experience, also referred to as Deep Sea fishing, out of Key West, Florida is like nowhere else in the world. The reef line is only 6 miles south of Key West and the Gulf Stream can be just past that during the winter months which make it great for catching trophy size sailfish, wahoo, tuna and more. During the summer months the gulf stream moves further south and we get to stretch our legs a bit and run 10-30 miles offshore in search of weed lines and dolphin fish. Offshore fishing is the stuff of lore made famous by the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Zane Grey and others. Their is plenty of excitement to be had year round fishing out of Key West, Florida, whether we are trolling, kite fishing or sight fishing you can expect to leave with a great new fishing story of your own. Key West has it all.



Key West reef fishing is an action packed fishing experience. Depending on the time of year many different species occupy the reef. You are always sure to find yellowtail snapper and barracudas on the reef. As the winter months approach and the water cools and cero mackerel and mutton snapper and grouper grow thick on the reef. It is a great trip for action and a lot of fun for beginner anglers. When the wind blows there are shallow water reefs we can fish to stay in the calm waters and still enjoy the day. The reef action is a blast on light tackle.



Compass Rose Charters Reef fishing Wreck fishing near Key West and in the Gulf of Mexico is full of surprises. The wrecks are home to fish from 600 lbs to 3 lbs and you never know who is going to be home when you arrive. The way we fish wrecks is to anchor down, begin a chum slick and watch. As the time passes the fish grow larger and larger from cobia to snapper, grouper to goliath groupers weighing sometimes over 400 to 500 lbs. It is hands on bottom fishing and spinning tackle fishing for the surface species, kingfish, cobia and sometimes permit.
