Wreck fishing near Key West and in the Gulf of Mexico is full of surprises. The wrecks are home to fish from 600 lbs to 3 lbs and you never know who is going to be home when you arrive. The way we fish wrecks is to anchor down, begin a chum slick and watch. As the time passes the fish grow larger and larger from cobia to snapper, grouper to goliath groupers weighing sometimes over 400 to 500 lbs. It is hands on bottom fishing and spinning tackle fishing for the surface species, kingfish, cobia and sometimes permit.
