Deep Drop Fishing
FUNYET Charters offers Deep Drop fishing, one of the most physicaly challenging and rewarding in terms of eibility of all types of fishing.
True deep sea fishing as it is called covers a large variety of environments. Some deeper wrecks can be found in water from 170 to over 420 feet of water. Bottom fishing spots vary in location from several miles outside the reef line on the Atlantic side of the Keys to to well over twenty miles out. For the most part heavy spinning tackle is needed to move bottom dwelling fish from the safety of their lairs. Some of the species targeted are groupers (black, gag, red, snowy), jewfish, Mutton snapper, amberjack, almaco, african pompano, barracuda, and shark, Tile fish Black bellied rose fish, Hake and Barrel fish.
