Sportfishing in the florida keys is the ultimate angling and boating experience within the continental United States. For anyone who may appreciate hundreds of species of beautiful fish and crystal clear caribbean blue waters, this is the place.

Here in the Florida Keys there is more water than most people could fish and explore in a lifetime. From Key Largo to Key West, there is an abundance of marine life on both the Florida Bay and Atlantic side of the island chain. The Florida Keys are very unique in many way and certainly hold paradise status within.  The Caribbean island culture has influenced much of the Keys and those who live and vacation here. The sportfishing industry started in the 1940's, although fishing has been a huge part of the Keys lifestyle from many years before. Generations after the pioneers began sharing the excitement of this sport, it continues to thrive and advance to new levels of the imagination. For those looking for a fun relaxing and safe fishing destination, they definitely deserve a visit to the Florida Keys.

Let Get Bent Charters with myself, Captain Chris Walter, share a very memorable sportfishing experience with your family and friends. Thank you for visiting my website and ENJOY!

“Get Bent” Charters offers blue water deep sea fishing trips to the Gulf Stream year-round for awesome offshore fishing action. Spring and summer 8 hour Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi) fishing trips are an outstanding way to have fun and fill your cooler with delicious fish to eat.  Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, and Triple Tail are some other types of fishing that take place offshore, while Blue Marlin, Sailfish, and White Marlin are another real treat if one is after a billfish in the Florida Keys.  But, the best shot at getting a billfish bite on any nice day of the year would be during a 10 hour daytime Broadbill Swordfish trip.  The Swordfishing is outstanding, here, year-round and offers multiple opportunities on most days for an angler to challenge such a mighty fish.   
Due to the many species of fish and our beautiful weather, here, in the Florida Keys, reef fishing can take place year-round in which we offer multi-specie reef fishing from Key Largo and Islamorada into Marathon.  Yellowtail Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, and Mutton Snapper are just a few of the many Snapper species to hook into while fishing the Florida Keys Atlantic waters.  Also, Black Grouper, Gag Grouper, Red Grouper, and giant Goliath Grouper are the most prevalent of Groupers that we catch on the reefs of the Florida Keys.  Also, above the reefs one can have a great opportunity to catch some of the fastest fish in the Atlantic Ocean.  Sailfish, Wahoo, King Mackeral, and Cero Mackeral are sure to get one’s heart beating as these fish peel line off at blistering speeds.  Reef fishing in the Florida Keys is a great way to spend the day with family and friends, while enjoying the beautiful scenery and surrounding waters in our lush tropical environment.  Any age, gender, or experience levels are welcome to come and enjoy either a 4, 6, or 8 hour trip when reef fishing.
Beneath the waters of Key Largo, Islamorada, and Marathon, there are many sunken wrecks and artificial reefs that are homes to thousands of incredible fish to “Get Bent” on.  Not only do we catch some of the Snappers and Groupers that we find on the reef on these wrecks, but we also catch Amberjack, Barracuda, Permit, African Pompano, and Cobia while fishing these structures.  In the Keys, live bait, dead bait, and artificial jigging are the main styles of targeting these types of powerful fish that lurk below at depths of 100 to 300 feet of water.  Those targeting these species of fish must be well rested, as one will need energy to battle such powerful creatures.  Wreck fishing in the Keys is a great way to catch big fish, while not having to travel too far from shore.  Half days and full days are both available for this type of fishing.

Spring and summer months bring the acrobatic and giant “Silver King”.  Tarpon fishing in the Keys is a lot of fun without a long boat ride or choppy water for those who do not like being rocked around.  Seeing a 100+ lb Tarpon doing a double flip next to the boat will surely get one’s heart beating.  Also, Snook fishing in the Keys can be just as exciting, however there are certain seasons where one can harvest these fish and other times of the year where one can only catch and release.
