The cold weather in the rest of the country has our tourist season in full swing down here in the Florida Keys. The spring time brings great conditions to target some of our favorite sport fish. March was filled with many days on the water catching up some beautiful Permit. We have also had some fun catching our clients a few sharks and barracuda which are crowd favorites. Tarpon season is rolling in. We are looking forward to fishing many of our repeat clients that travel to the Florida Keys to specifically target Tarpon which always put up an exciting fight making for a satisfying catch. We also have some clients looking to get out on the sand bar with a half day fishing followed by a cook your catch picnic at the beach with our favorite local chef Martin Liz.
As usual we had a busy holiday season down here in the Keys. While the rest of the country is shoveling show, we are busy shoveling bait into the live well with the hopes of bringing home holiday dinner. The temperatures have been mild and we have had some challenges with wind but as you can see it has not stopped us from catching Snapper, Tuna, Pompano and the always exciting Goliath Groupers which tend to be a favorite catch and release for our clients. The cooler temperatures also chase the large barracudas into shallow water making them great fun for sight casting and a great fight to get them to the boat. Our busy season is upon us and dates are filling up fast. If you are planning a trip to Key West this spring give us a call so we can get you out on the water!
The days are long, the water is warm and the fishing is hot hot hot down here in the Florida Keys. July was another successful month for Showtime Charters. While the rest of the country tuned into shark week on the Discovery Channel, we've had our share of shark trips and some close encounters of our own. During a recent spear fishing experience, we had a visit from one of our local tiger sharks. Mini lobster season wrapped up our July. While the weather during those particular two days was not ideal, we managed to snag a great lobster feast prepared by our favorite local Chef Martin Liz. Looking forward to more great days on the water as lobster season opens on August 6th. Drop us an email or phone call to book your trip for August!
The weather in the Florida Keys continues to be on our side throughout the month of June. As weather permits we love to show clients a great time near shore and off shore while the seas are calm and waters are warm. We've had a great few weeks catching some monster sharks, permit and a variety of dock to dish favorites. This week we had a great group all the way from California. We enjoyed a great morning of fishing followed up by some swimming to cool off at Snipes Key to wrap up the day. Next week we have a beach trip planned with our favorite Chef Martin Liz. Check out these great photos and book your adventure with us! Dates are filling up with mini Lobster season July 27th and 28th and regular season opening August 6th.
With the weather warming up and Grouper season in full swing it is a great time to get out on the water here in the Florida Keys. Grouper season is open for 8 months and yields one of the most rewarding fish to catch in terms of fight and taste.
The weather has been on our side throughout the month of May. The ocean temps are in the mid 80's and the seas have been very calm. These conditions are ideal for full day fishing trips catching a variety of sport fish and some delicious dock to dish dinner options.
Keep in mind Showtime Charters is always available to tailor a trip to your specific group needs. We love to do spear fishing and dive trips, as well as family trips out to the beach. We also have catering options for beach days through a local Key West Chef.
