Islamorada Fishing in the Florida Keys
Islamorada fishing is among the best anywhere, and can provide the thrill of a lifetime. I, Captain Merv Finch of the Redfish, offer deepsea fishing at its best on the fertile waters of the Keys, on the comfortable fishing rigged 44′ sportfisherman Redfish. Islamorada, the Sportfishing capital of the world, offers a tremendous variety of deep sea and reef fishing options all year, and we target species such as as dolphin (mahi-mahi), sailfish, grouper, snapper, wahoo, tuna, cobia, marlin and amberjack.
The techniques I use to target such fish include: drifting; slow, medium, and fast trolling; anchoring over certain hot spots and deploying live and dead bait. We also fly kites for sailfish, larger kingfish and tuna.
The boat is rigged with top-of-the-line fishing tackle that is meticulously maintained for reliable performance. The Redfish is equipped with the latest safety and fish-finding gear, and offers a comfortable air-conditioned salon, which allows you to escape the sun and give you somewhere to cool off.
We welcome families and anglers regardless of their fishing expertise. The Redfish enjoys taking family charters; there is nothing like spending a day on the water with your loved ones. We are located at the Bud n’ Mary’s Marina in Islamorada at mile marker 79.8 (oceanside) in the Florida Keys. We offer full days, 3/4 days, and half days.
