Good Karma offers private fishing charter trips. This is not an open boat and we do not offer split charters. Our charter rates below are for the entire boat and are limited to a maximum of 4 passengers.
We fish the fertile nearshore and offshore waters around the Florida Upper Keys – including Key Largo, Tavernier and Islamorada. Our charters usually fish the pristine nearshore reefs, many area wrecks and abundant offshore waters. The precise itinerary for your fishing charter will depend on your desires, local current conditions, and what is expected to be biting when you visit the Florida Keys.
Here are some specific fishing tactics we may employ:
- Live bait fishing
- Kite Fishing
- Drift fishing
- Vertical jigging over wrecks & seamounts
- Slow trolling live baits deep using electric downriggers
- Anchoring on reef ledges or rockpiles then chumming up schools of snapper
- Trolling for wahoo, tuna, sailfish and mahi-mahi
- Deep dropping (manual or electric reels)
Good Karma Sportfishing is sponsored by Xact Customs, the premier SeaDek certified fabricator, and #1 source for custom SeaDek products! Our SeaDek Flooring offers Exceptional Traction which is perfect for fishing in rougher sea conditions as the flooring keeps you locked in place. The shock absorbing qualities are absolutely awesome!
- Seakeeper is a computer controlled gyroscope that eliminates most boat roll, including the fatigue, anxiety, and seasickness that go with it. The Seakeeper transforms your fishing experience.
