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.
We caught this large amberjack on a live blue runner in 200ft of water off Marathon yesterday. You better hold on tight because these fish are ridiculously strong! We often take a break from yellowtail fishing to target larger fish. Are a few of these you will have all you can handle.
