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.
Let Captain Doug Kelley customize a Florida Keys Fishing Charter trip to meet your personal ideal deep sea fishing trip. Come fish the Florida Keys with Captain Doug aboard Hooked UP II.
Captain Doug Kelley is located in the heart of the Florida Keys...Marathon, Florida.

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.
