Fall fishing continues to be great here in the Florida keys, with almost every charter coming back with a diverse group of species. There are lots of redfish, snook and cobia in the flats (great for the fly fishermen!) as well as a good number of fish in the back country. Kingfish have been giving excellent bite out on the reefs and wrecks, along with their little cousin the cero mackerel. Daytime swordfishing and black fin tuna have been quite productive, with charters reporting large numbers of football-sized tuna and the occasional big one on every trip. The low number of boats out on the water makes this time of year an especially great time to get out there and put some lines in the water– you’re practically guaranteed to find a high yield spot without anyone to share it with!
Our Marathon hotel is wonderfully situated near some of the best fishing charters around (if we do say so ourselves!) so don’t hesitate to ask our front desk agents to set you up with a half day, full day or shared charter. And remember, our kitchen is always happy to cook your catch just the way you like it! What more can you ask for?
