This page will be our little secret!!! ;-x   Here, you will be able to find GPS #s for Reefs, Wrecks, and maybe a secret honey hole or two.

 - Fishing Chart

  • In the Keys, fishing is fantastic year round!  With the changing of Summer to Fall though, WHAT you catch may differ.  Below is a handy Fishing Chart courtesy of Captain Chris Johnson's site, that showcases which species are best to target when.  Some species such as Yellowtail and Mangrove Snapper are excellent throughout the year.  Reel 'em in!!!

With Lobster Season almost here and Mini Season coming this week on Wednesday and Thursday, it's time to get out your gloves, masks, nets, gauges and tickle sticks....( Why does Lobster Season sound like bad porn?? Honeyholes and tickle sticks?? Go figure!)  and head out into the briny for your quota of some of the most delectable fare the ocean has to offer.

Located at N24 59.550 W80 27.440, and bearing the name, "Hog Rxs" on the GPS map below, this location has been my go to spot since I was a kid and is in about 15 ft of water.  Lobster like rocky areas in which to hide from predators, and as this area is ripe with Hog Fish, whose #1 staple is Lobster, this place is a great place to start.

From there...I'll let you discover your OWN Honeyholes.  And I don't need to tell you, but this IS OUR Secret...Right?? 

Upper Keys Reefs
Be it Diving, Snorkling or Fishing , the reefs in the Upper Keys provide a variety of exceptional opportunities!

Mosquito Banks - N25.07647 W80.38124 - Very Shallow area marked by metal tower with Mooring Balls
Conch Reef - N24.95052 W80.46135 - 15 to 35 feet deep.  Named because of the large amounts of Queen Conch found in the sandy areas
Little Conch Reef - N24.94279 W80.47534 -About 1 mile south of Conch Reef, 15-30 feet deep. Spur and groove corals, crisscrossed by ledges and lots of tube sponges.  Great Place for lobster too! (shhhhh our secret!!)
Molassas Reef - N25.00965 W80.37452 - Big Metal Tower marks the biggest reef in Key Largo, the mooring balls sit on the south side of the tower.  The balls on the inside are 20 feet dep and they get deeper the further you go from the tower to around 50 feet.  Known for its large marine life: Eagle Rays, Turtles, Eels, and my favorite, Goliath Grouper (aka Jewfish)
Pickles Reef - N24.98712 W80.41640 - 5 to 35 foot deep patch reef and pickle barrels encrusted with coral pillar towers.
French Reef - N25.03819 W80.35257 - 25 to 45 feet deep, known for its caves and swim thrus and star coral
Grecian Rocks - N25.11169 W80.30583 - One of my Favorites! A very shallow ledge of coral,so shallow it protrudes above the ocean at low tide.  On the land side there are mooring balls in about 5 -7 feet of water.  Great place for littl;e kids and novice snorklers.
White Banks  - N25.03825 W80.35260- Inside French Reef in 2-20 feet of water.  There are huge brain coral.  Great snorkle spot.
Key Largo Dry Rocks "Christ of the Abyss Statue" - N25.12301 W80.29715 - Propably the world's most dived location!  The 15 fot bronze statue and base sit in the sand next to the coral reef in 25 feet of water.  The mooring balls surround the reef and an upright spar bouy mark the statue's location.  A VERY BUSY location.  Recommend going late in the afternoon about an hour or two before  sunset when it's a little less congested.
