On our way out to the swordfish grounds off Marathon we stopped and caught a few blackfin tuna. Johnathin had a blast reeling these guys in. With such a long run to the fishing grounds we often come across plenty of fish on the way.
Mangrove snapper spawn this time of year off Marathon. There is no better time to target them than at night. It also gives us a break from the heat. Night snapper trips are very productive in the summer months.
Mini season lobster charter off Marathon. We got our limit by 11:00 am the first day of mini season. Mini season is a two day period when recreational anglers can harvest lobster before the commercial fisherman can harvest lobster. This two day season is very productive. The regular season opened August 6th and last time March.
Debbie and Dan shot this red grouper while lobstering off Marathon. We often find nice size grouper in the same holes that hold lobster. Lobster and spearfishing charters are very popular this time of year. Make sure to ask Capt. Doug about these charters.
