Spear One Fishing Review & Editor's Notes


The Keys certainly carry their share of weight in the title Florida proudly wears:  Sportfishing Capital of the World!  In the deep blues, anglers are likely to enjoy having their line hit by such great fish as:  Bonita, Sailfish, Wahoo, King Mackerel, and Barracuda.  The birds often give away the location of schools to pursue and the crew of the Spear One quickly navigate into place, chum the waters and set guests onto some excellent fishing excitement. 

Wahoo are just one example of the exciting fish to hook in these waters.  A cousin to the King Mackerel, the Wahoo is said to be aptly named for the cry it elicits from anglers who have one hit the line.  WAHOO!  A cousin to the King Mackerel, the speed of the species is to be expected.  Scads of lines will whip off the reel in the initial run of a Wahoo.  Unlike the Mackerel, the Wahoo prefers to swim solo in the depths.  The tasty white meat of the Wahoo pleases most.


Reef fishing offers variety and quantity as well.  Grouper and Snapper are typical catches on the reefs, and a day on the Reefs is likely to yield twenty different species!  Action-packed fun is the name of the game on a Reef Charter. Yellow-tail and Mutton Snapper are popular possibilities.  The typical approach is to anchor up and chum the waters.  After the fish begin to show up, bottom-dropping baits is a great way to haul in an impressive catch of tasty fish.

Goliath Grouper

Wreck fishing is a bit different and often yields some trophy fish.  Larger predator-type fish cruise the wrecks at depths of 100-250'.  Giant Pompanos, Goliath Grouper and Cobia are some of the possibilities.  The Goliath Grouper can reach nearly ten feet and a thousand pounds!  This protected species is pure excitement on the hook.  Sight-casting with live crabs, jigs and flies is a typical technique in these waters.

Tarpon, Cobia and Permit are also found in the Key West Harbor.  All favorites in their own right, there is action everywhere in the Keys!

From the blue waters to the Gulf, the Captain is ready to get you on the fishing adventure of your dreams.  Located at 47 Palmetto Drive on Key West, Spear One Fishing is waiting to serve you.


Fishing is great year-round in the Keys.  The Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, Bonita and Kingfish are great quarry for the fall  Hitting the reefs and wrecks in the spring is an exciting idea.  Grouper, Snapper and Barracuda offer fun all year. Sailfish are a great option as the temperatures cool.

The Crew
A native of the Keys, the Captain has decades of experience to share with Charter guests.  Captain Steve Rodger began commercial fishing at age 16, as soon as the law allowed.  An avid diver and proficient Spearfisherman as well, he is a student of the native fish and patiently shares that knowledge with guests.
