The Gulf of Mexico offshore of south west Florida is well known for its calm sea conditions and excellent year round ship wreck, trolling, and reef fishing. Venice, Florida located just south of Sarasota, Florida and directly on the Gulf of Mexico is the perfect take-off point to access and enjoy this awesome shipwreck fishing. Depending on the fishing season, you will catch all sorts of different species of fish while trolling and wreck fishing.

Some of the finest ship wreck and artificial reef fishing happens on the Gulf of Mexico offshore of south west Florida. The live bait fishing and slow trolling methods we use while fishing around these ship wrecks and reefs produces some of the most exciting wreck, reef fishing possible.

Reef and shipwreck fishing for grouper and snapper is good most any time of the year. Other offshore fish such as kingfish, cobia, tuna, amberjack, Spanish mackerel, dolphin, shark, barracuda, mahi, tarpon, permit, and giant red fish are all caught using trolling and live bait around these wrecks as they seasonally migrate through the waters of the Gulf of Mexico offshore of Venice, Florida.

Our fishing captains have been fishing the shipwrecks and reefs of the Gulf of Mexico for many years and know where and how to catch these fish either trolling or live baiting.
