Snappers Snappin' in the middle Keys

Capt. Bob Brown
November 3, 2010
Marathon - Saltwater Fishing Report

The reef bite has been hot lately for Snapper and Grouper, and some huge mutton snapper have been hitting the docks in Marathon this week. Yellowtail snapper have been hot as well on the deep edge of the reef, with Mangrove snapper chomping on the reef patches in 20-40ft of water. Black and Gag grouper have been showing up at times as well and some blacks up to 40lb have been seeing photo time around the middle Keys.

Sailfish are starting to show up in good numbers around the Sombrero reef to Looe Key area. Some have been coming on the reef feeding on Ballyhoo and some have been caught by live baiting just off the reef edge in 100-120ft of water.

Some Mahi-Mahi are still showing up at times on the offshore scene mostly around the edge of the gulfstream and at times in as close as 200ft of water. Some nice fish are being taken up to 30lb mostly under frigate birds well offshore.

Blackfin tuna are biting at the 409 and west humps southeast of Marathon and a large predator like a shark or marlin are not out of the question to be had this time of year around the humps.
