Fishing trips usually begin early in the morning and will last anything from early afternoon to early evening.

Other offshore fish such as kingfish, cobia, tuna, amberjack, spanish mackerel, shark, barracuda, tarpon, mahi, wahoo and giant red fish are all caught as they seasonally migrate through the deep sea waters of the Gulf of Mexico offshore of Fort Myers, Florida. There are many different types of fishing bait that are used in different conditions, depending on the depth of the water, the clarity of the water, whether the bottom is rocky or clear, if you will go through reeds and other water plants and how deep you want to lure and bait to go.

Chartering a boat is one way to go deep sea fishing. Charter boats range in size from 36-65 ft, and trips can be booked from 4 hrs up to 12 hrs or, even overnight.

Deep Sea fishing is year round with the fish moving in closer to shore and back out again. Because this form of fishing is a relatively new activity and requires considerable resources in terms of investment and technology, few people have developed a regular plan to participate in this type of fishing regularly. Most deep sea fishing is done by either dropping a very large bait down to the bottom over reefs or wrecks, or by trolling very large lures behind a boat.
