Marquesas Keys Fishing Charters

Permit caught on fly fishing in the Marquesas KeysOur journey begins at our marina located on Stock Island on board one of our bay boats. Fueled up and ready to go your captain greets you at our marina store and goes over the hopes and dreams of the anglers on board for the day that lies before you.

The trip out takes roughly 30 - 40 minutes to get to some of the first fishing spots on board our bay boats and a little longer on our flats fishing boat. We set the day up for what will be working best and what our anglers are anticipating.

We fish the Marquesas Keys with Spin fishing tackle and fly fishing gear. Your choice. Here are some examples of the areas we fish.

Flats Fishing

Fishing the flats of the Marquesas is very rewarding. Technical anglers will enjoy the hunt mixed with casting accuracy needed to catch a trophy permit or bonefish and many other species including large barracudas, jacks and cobia. There are a vast amount of flats in the Marquesas Keys that keep the day interesting and fun. We can fish the flats with either our bay boats or our traditional technical flats fishing boat.

Some of the best permit fishing in the world is said to be in the Marquesas Keys.

Inshore Fishing

The inside of the Marquesas are like a shallow lake. A group of island surround the body of water called Mooney Harbor. Here there is tons of life. Tarpon, sharks, barracudas, Jacks and permit freely swim through. Our flats fishing boats pole you into location and our bay boats use trolling motors to get you silently to the fish to make your presentation and get you hooked up.

Near Shore

Two permit caught on the wrecks in the Marquesas KeysAround the perimeter of the Marquesas Keys we have some amazing nearshore spots that really hold a mixed bag of fish. The light tackle spin fishing enthusiast will enjoy casting artificial lures and catching a fish every other cast. The water is breathatakingly clear and anglers really enjoy watching the fish eat the lure. Its really a lot of fun. We use our bay boats here as they are able to work in a little deeper waters.

The Shallow Wrecks

Scattered all around are the shallow water wrecks that really hold some fun fish. Some are pretty close to the Marquesas and some are a bit of an additional run but well worth it. We find great fishing using top water plugs and fly fishing for large barracudas, jacks and cobia. Year round one never knows when a big school of hungrey (very large) permit will make their way past us offing an opportunity to catch one. Quite often we get double hook ups. Watch out for the bull sharks.

The Reef

Yellowtail snapperThrough the years we have realized our bay boats can fish the Marquesas Keys reef on nice days as well as any other boats. This opened a HUGE fishery for us to add to the list of things to do. Using mostly artificials we get into large yellowtail snappers, mutton snapper, Grouper, big jacks and barracudas on light tackle. Certain times of the year we target some palegic species such as sailfish and dolphin. Most are amazed again by the Gin clear water and the amount of life they see on the reef.

All In One Trip

The All In Wonder fishing charter is a great way to see it all. Try a piece of everything from the flats fishing to the reef in one day. This is a Dream Catcher Signature Fishing Charter. We incorporate a species hunt to help you try and sample as many different species of fish that are available on your day.
