Since we had strong winds we decided to fish the bay. Melissa caught this small blacktip shark but while she was reeling it in a large bull shark came and bit the tail clean off!! Very exciting as it happen right next to the boat. Come book your next FL Keys fishing charter with Capt. Doug on the “Hooked Up II”.

Florida Keys fishing charters at its finest! Marathon offers some of the best fishing that the Keys has to offer.
Ray was visiting from Montana and took a fishing charter out of Marathon in the Florida Keys with Capt. Doug Kelley. This was one of three large bull redfish we caught along with our limit of mangrove snapper. Despite the 60 degree weather and 25 knot winds we still managed to catch these trophy size redfish. One of the nice things about Marathon is even with heavy winds there are still many places we can fish and still be very productive. Many captains cancel trips due to strong winds but with a little local knowledge most days we can still make it happen.
Shawn caught her first big bull redfish in the bay off Marathon on a 3/4 day fishing charter. With windy conditions we often fish the bay. We caught of limit of snapper and a few of these oversized redfish. This is a trophy size redfish! Come book your next Florida Keys fishing charter with Capt. Doug and let him put you on a fish of a lifetime!
Sailfish are biting off Marathon, come book your fishing charter with Capt. Doug and get one for yourself.
We caught this 87″ sailfish in 110ft of water off Marathon last week. This is charter fishing at its finest! Make sure to ask about our taxidermy services. This sail made for one hell of mount for the wall. Of course after the picture the fish was released unharmed. Sailfish charters are some of the most exciting types of fishing we offer.
