Offshore bite hot in Marathon!

Capt. Bob Brown
September 27, 2011
Marathon - Saltwater Fishing Report

Excellent catches of nice Mahi-Mahi have been hitting the docks with some larger fish in the 20-30lb class along with plenty of gaffers and smaller schoolies. A few decent wahoo have also been found around floating debris from 300ft of water on out to 25 miles offshore. Swordfishing has been excellent at times with some as large as 450lb hitting the middle Keys docks this week!! Blackfin Tuna have been consistent around the west hump and an occasional Marlin has been showing up in the spread of boats trolling out near 'the wall'.

The reef and wreck fishing has been a great way to make a half day trip out on the water as the mutton snapper continue to be plentiful around oceanside wrecks along with an occasional almaco jack, amberjack, black grouper, bonito, jack crevalle and not to mention the occasional barracuda or shark! Reef fishing has been hot for large yellowtail snapper, mangrove snapper, some mackerel and the occasional grouper.

Bayside action has been good for mangrove snapper and some super shark fishing action. A few decent redfish, trout and snook are also being reported near the park and out near the islands NW of Marathon. Good luck in all your fishing adventures whether you go bayside, oceanside or offshore!!
