Patch Reef Fishing
The “Patches” are isolated coral heads, rubble and rock piles located in depths of 10-30ft. Clients have the opportunity to catch several different fish species on patch reef fishing trips, including famous “keys scallywags” (throwback inedible fish or undersize fish) that are fun to catch on light tackle, photograph and release.
If you are looking to catch a prized Bonefish I have the spots for getting them on light tackle in the winter months on the patch reefs. The Bonefish (Grey Ghost) is highly sought after for a catch and release photo, just to say you caught one!
Below is a list of fish species that we may catch on the Patch Reefs. Check out our Florida Keys Fish Seasons calendar page.
- Mangrove Snapper
- Mutton Snapper
- Small Grouper
