Reef Fishing Charters in Marathon FL and The Florida Keys

Charter fishing the reefs off of Marathon in the Florida Keys is nothing but a hop, skip, and a jump from land. You’ll be fishing anywhere from 20 feet of water on the patch reefs out to a little over 100 feet for big yellowtail and other snapper and grouper. I hear the excitement all the time from customers: “This is the cleanest, most beautiful water I’ve ever seen in my life!” Sometimes you can see the bottom in over 80 feet of water while standing on the boat. Being able to see your fish come up from the deep and swallow your bait is awesome. Catching fish from 1 pound to well over 100 pounds while still being able to see the shoreline all day long is unbeatable.

There are plenty of fish to target while Marathon charter fishing on the reef. The list includes yellowtail snapper, mangrove snapper, mutton snapper, black grouper, gag grouper, red grouper, king fish, and Mackerel. You don’t have to go far to make the drags on your reels scream. And at the end of the day you know you’re going to have the freshest fish available because you just caught them.
