When you go to Florida on vacation, you can find plenty of things to do. Swimming, sightseeing, and lazing around on the beach are just some examples. One activity that many visit Florida for, however, is sport fishing. You don’t have to be a veteran fisher to enjoy it; your entire family will have the time of your life taking on the big fish off the coasts of Florida Keys, particularly of Islamorada, which is well-known for its wide variety of fishing game. All you need to do is find a charter boat that will be perfect for your preferences and you’re off to trying your hand at scoring some of these prized catch.

The call of the sea may be a bit too hard to resist, especially when you desperately need some time off. In such cases, this itch to be in the water is a great opportunity to try catching dolphinfish, a.k.a. dolphin. This is where a preferred charter fishing service can come into play. When you talk to Islamorada residents about catching dolphins, they may refer to the fish as mahi-mahi or dorado. This is to avoid confusion among uninitiated guests who may think they’ll be looking for the gray-skinned mammal. Dolphins can be found in Islamorada waters between May and September. With that in mind, take the time to search for a fishing charter by consulting portals such as Islamorada Fishing Source during that timeframe.

Nonprofit organizations always need fresh ideas for fundraising. Adapting to new fundraising trends while creating solutions to some compelling needs of the moment, allow these organizations to engage the public to support their cause. Without successful projects and ample donors, the nonprofit may not be able to raise the needed funds for its targeted beneficiaries and continue its operations to give aid. One fundraising idea worth exploring is organizing a fishing trip. You can attract fishing enthusiasts and even whole families who may be interested to participate in such events. If you belong to a fishing group, you can organize one of these events for a great cause.

Islands in the Florida Keys have been featured in several magazines and blogs, and each one, as a recreational haven, has been rated highly and accorded awards and praises as excellent destinations. Recently, Country Living named the Florida Keys in its article as one of the “20 Places All Americans Should See Before They Die,” and cited geographic convenience as its primary advantage over other tropical destinations—you don’t need a passport to get there, and it’s just 120 miles from the southern edge of Miami. Indeed, the Florida Keys is a great fishing spot for individuals, groups, and families to explore, but don’t think it’s not an exciting date venue for romantic couples, too! If you’re both adventuresome, you can go fishing in Islamorada for your first unique date; it’s no less a fun date if you’re a couple married for some time.

Where there are crevices to lay eggs on, holes and corners to hide from predators, or ample prey for ambush, marine life thrives. This makes Islamorada wrecks among the go-to spots for avid anglers, recreational or sport alike, in their offshore fishing adventures. Retired charter boats and shrimp boats, steel freighter ships, and remains of cars are scattered across the island chain. Most are named after the nearest reef or light buoy, while others are merely identified for the depth where they are nestled. Swarms of Islamorada charter fishing boaters gather above these wrecks as they’re known to house lots of Florida’s most prized fishes such as the snapper, goliath grouper, and mahi mahi.

Backcountry fishing in Islamorada during the day can be unbearable due to the intense summer heat. It’s no surprise, then, that some anglers choose to schedule fishing during the night. The benefits are obvious: no sunburns, no sticky sunscreens, no hats, and no sunglasses amid the more relaxing nighttime air. Another reason you should try night fishing is that fish species that remain aloof during the day become more aggressive at night, giving you a better chance of scoring a good catch. Coral reefs that run parallel with the Florida Keys shore are teeming with all kinds of fish, and this is usually where anglers go night fishing for yellowtails and other prized species. The more daring individuals go about five miles offshore to enter the Florida Keys deep sea fishing zone.
