Deep Drop Fishing


Deep Drop Fishing

Available species vary according to Federal Regulations

FUNYET Charters offers Deep Drop fishing, one of the most  challenging and rewarding in terms of edibility of most types of fish caught.

True deep sea fishing as it is called covers a large variety of environments. Some deeper wrecks can be found in water from 170 to over 420 feet of water.   Bottom fishing spots vary in location from several miles outside the reef line on the Atlantic side of the Keys to to well over twenty miles out.  For the most part heavy spinning tackle is used in depths of up to 450′. In depths over 450′ we relay heavily on electric reels. Some of the species targeted are groupers (black, gag, red, snowy, yellow edge), Mutton snapper, amberjack, almaco, African pompano, barracuda, and shark, Tile fish  Black bellied rose fish, Hake and Barrel fish are also frequently encountered.

The Deep dropping on natural bottom occurs in water between 550 feet and all the way out to the wall in over 900 feet of water.  While it is common practice the use of electric motorized fishing gear to ply the deeper waters, however we have do offer heavy spinning tackle, to keep the sport in sport fishing, if you prefer.

Included in the charter:  Cooler packed with ice, bait, tackle. State and Federal fishing licenses, and pickup service in some Lower Keys locations.

You need to bring: Sun protection, hat, polarized sunglasses, food to eat and drinks, camera, and the willingness to have fun.

FUNYET Charters can arrange to have your trophy fish mounted through Gray Taxidermy, the worlds largest marine taxidermist.
