Where Will We Fish
Depending on the season, our offshore fishing destination is as varied as the type of fish we’ll catch.
The famous Marathon Hump lies 27 miles southeast of Marathon, and provides for some of the most consistent deep sea fishing.
However, some of the hard fighting, acrobatic and beautiful pelagic fish can be found as little as three to five miles from shore.
Our offshore trips always start with catching live bait, which can also be an exciting part of the trip.
Any angler can appreciate the perseverance of finding the sometimes elusive, but ever important bait fish, that will make the offshore trip an unforgettable experience!
Types of Fish You Will Catch
The waters around Marathon, Florida are home to some phenomenal creatures, and provide for some of the best deep sea fishing year round.
The excitement that comes with the potential to catch multiple species brings a unique experience to the adventure.
Spring and Summer lends itself more to finding Black Fin Tuna and Mahi Mahi.
Fall and Winter presents more of an opportunity to catch some Sailfish, Kingfish and Wahoo.
Although the list of the types of fish that you could expect to catch is lengthy, some that you can potentially haul in are:
Black Fin Tuna - Although they don’t grow as large as some other types of tuna, an average size blackfin puts on a breathtaking fight. These fish are absolutely delicious to eat! Locals in the Marathon area make sushi, or simply slice it and eat it raw.
Mahi Mahi - a very aggressive fish that puts up a relentless fight! It is one of the most popular fish served in restaurants with its sweet taste.
Sailfish - Considered the fastest fish in the ocean, reaching top speeds of 70 miles per hour, it is one of the most challenging fish to catch.
King Mackerel - growing up to 5 ½ feet and weighing up to 100 pounds, the KingFish, as it is also known, is one of the most exhilarating fish to catch due to its size and speed.
Wahoo - Comparable to the Sailfish and the King Mackerel, the Wahoo is one of the fastest pelagic fish, and with a jaw that has the ability to move up and down and side to side, it too is one of the more challenging to catch.
