Marathon FL Keys Report

Capt. Bob Brown
March 6, 2014
Marathon - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing in the middle Keys has been a mixed bag of stuff lately... Big Cobia have been on the Atlantic side in Hawk's channel following Rays. Some up to 60+lbs have been hitting the docks here in Marathon. Finding the ray is the key and if your boat has a tower this is a big plus when looking for these ocean side Cobia. Cobia have been on the gulf side wrecks as well but in the smaller variety from undersized up to about 30lb.

Snapper fishing on the Florida Bay side has been good on the wrecks from 9-20 miles for nicer sized fish but the inshore spots including the bridges have seen the size of the Mangrove snappers shrink down lately. The next cool front should move some more large fish back to the bridges for all you bridge fishermen.

Tarpon are starting to heat up as well at the Keys bridges. Some fish up to 120lb have been caught and released lately at the 7 mile and Long Key bridges.

Offshore fishing has been spotty with some good Blackfin Tuna action around the inshore area and near the offshore humps. Look for the dipping birds if you are offshore looking for Tuna. The gulftream being as far out as 50 miles from shore lately has been a damper on the Mahi bite as they have been spotty at best. Same for the Sailfish as there have been one here and one there but no good bite on them in the past week. A few Marlin have been starting to show up though around the offshore humps and near the wall off of the lower Keys.

Good luck in all your fishing adventuires!!
