Fishing Report for Marathon

Here at Tranquility Bay Resort, we’re a little obsessed with lobster. Which is why we’re so excited at the results of 2012’s spiny lobster season thus far– with novices and experts alike reporting back to us that they’re getting their daily limits with ease. We love reading Best Bet Sportfishing Charter’s fishing reports, both because they’re educational (Captain Jason Long is a pro) and because they always lift our spirits when we’re trapped inside, dreaming of the open seas. Long has some great advice for those of you who are looking to get out on the water and grab some tails. Check out his words of wisdom here.

Did you know that our brilliant chefs at the Butterfly Cafe are more than happy to cook your catch for you? However you like it– grilled, blackened, baked or fried– there’s nothing as satisfying as coming back from a charter flush with fish and being able to enjoy the fruits of your labor mere hours afterwards…all without the hassle of having to cook & clean up yourself! Why not try your hand at lobstering this year, and have our kitchens prepare some tasty tails for you and your family? Just speak to the front desk here at Tranquility Bay for the best charter option to fit your needs… it’s so easy, even a lobster could do it.

Mini Lobster Season

One of the Florida Key’s most frenetic and delicious anual traditions is the Mini Lobster Season.  Each year for two days in July, this year on the 27th-28th, the Florida lobster season reopens and thousands of boats head out in search of lobster.  The whole of Monroe County will be teeming with divers and boaters searching for adult florida lobster.  This years limit is 6 per day, and measuring devices will be required on all boats along with a fishing licence and lobster endorsement.
