There’s no place better for deep sea fishing year round in the US than Key West,
where you’ll find offshore sport fishing at its best! Anglers from all over
the United States and North America flock to the Southernmost Island for the
amazing offshore sport fishing that put this small island on the map. Proximity
to the Gulfstream’s warming waters, a wealth of big game species and good
eating fish, year round warm weather and experienced charter captains make this a mecca for saltwater fishing enthusiasts.
With such a variety of fish, it’s a tough choice to decide between going
after that trophy sailfish or marlin, or targeting something delicious for dinner.
Imagine what it’s like to struggle with the powerful blackfin tuna, or
to watch the iridescent “light show of a colorful dolphin streak through
the water after your trolling bait. Oh, what a thrill to hook a giant tiger
shark or the fierce looking hammerhead.
Those are just a few of the exciting species you can target on a deep sea adventure
aboard the Triple Time, captained by tournament winner Joe
Mercurio. Capt. Joe has been fishing the waters off Key West since
his fishing captain father moved the family down to Miami and then Key West
when Joe was just a young man. That tradition continues today with two more
generations running charters on the Southernmost Island.
The Triple Time, a 46 luxury Bertram yacht outfitted for fishing offshore,
is the most comfortable of vessels. Anglers can relax in an air-conditioned
salon during the run out to the fishing grounds. The charter boat has two staterooms,
if needed, both with heads (bathrooms) and the main salon has TV/VCR and a CD
player. There’s a nice sized galley (kitchen) and for anglers with families,
it’s easy to be sure everyone in the fishing party will have a comfortable,
enjoyable day. All electronics are regularly upgraded to keep with the latest
in technology and the gear is every bit as fine as you can find on an offshore
charter – Capt. Joe uses all Penn International Reels with 20lb, 30lb,
and 50lb test line for various fishing. Whatever the angler’s skill level,
the gear is on board to offer a great fishing experience.
If you’ve never been deep sea fishing, don’t let that put you off
– yes the waters are deep – at least 30 meters, says the World
Fishing Network in an article on tips for deep sea fishing — but even beginners
can have a blast offshore when you have the right captain and mate to guide
you and rig your tackle.
You needn’t worry about when to come to Key West, either. The fishing
is good year round. Of course, if you want to target a specific species, you’ll
want to organize your trip around the season when that species is caught most
often – for example, dolphin season is April through July, sails are best
targeted March, April and May. http://www.fishtripletime.com/key_west/fishing/calendar.html
