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.

Most are named after the nearest reef or light buoy, while others are merely identified for the depth where they are nestled.

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.
