Fishing in Marathon

Marathon deep sea, inshore, and yes, even freshwater nearby. The inshore fishing has long been a renowned way beyond the Sunshine State. These waters are brimming with the likes of  Snook, Redfish, and Tarpon inshore, shark, mahi-mahi, kingfish, and jack offshore and of course even peacock bass during most of the year. With a wide range of other species to keep you busy on even the slowest of days of fishing.

In fact, there’s such a variety of species cruising the Marathon waters year-round, you’d be seriously hard-pressed to find a local fishing guide that recalls the last time the clients came back from the trip empty-handed. The sandy beaches line countless miles of waterways in Marathon.

More Details

It’s easy to get lost in the town of Marathon – in a good way. Marathon is minutes from Islamorada and a quick hike to key West where you can explore a plethora of fishing. Many of the locations you will find the greatest inshore Marathon Beach fishing experiences, as we explore the endless waters in search of the area’s famous Mahi Mahi and Grouper. This is arguably the only place in the world Tarpon stays in the same area all year round.
The beauty of these waters of the Florida Keys it places like the waters, which is a favorite destination among Marathon fishing charters and guides. The greatest thing taken him about a Marathon fishing charter is very rarely the fishing, almost every fishing charter will have the presence of herons, pelicans, manatees, porpoises, and other wildlife.

Boating out of Marathon, and you will be in some of the most beautiful and abundant waters on the east coast. This area doesn’t experience the same amount of tourism or overfishing as you find in other locations. offshore, there are more wrecks and artificial reefs than anywhere else on the east coast. Just 25 miles offshore, you can find the Oculina Coral reefs, another hotspot for bottom fishing, for species such as Snappers, Groupers, Triggerfish, and Amberjacks.

With all this structure around, the conditions are also ideal for attracting pelagic fish. The Gulf Stream is accessible on longer day trips, and with it comes Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, King Mackerel, Wahoo, Sailfish, and even Blue Marlin on occasion. With the continental shelf dropping 40 miles offshore, big pelagics and deep waters are certainly accessible for those with the engine power to make it there and back in a day.

Types of Fishing?

Your typical Marathon fishing trip can begin with casting jigs or lures around the various bridges or even live-bait that in a current of the inlet and bay. Fishing there can be rewarded with the famous Bonefish, Tarpon, and Snook, which also live around creeks, inlets and grass flats, and rock piles. Marathon is home to a good time, laid back lifestyle and charter boats. Whether you are looking for a fun day out with your friends and family or for a corporate outing, there are dozens of packages available for you. Go for light tackle action for Bonefish, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Snook, and Trout, catch Tarpon on a fly. Bottom fish for Grouper, tasty Snapper, or Amberjack. Enjoy trolling offshore for Wahoo and Mahi-Mahi. Whichever trip you have in mind, you will be able to make a great catch possible.

Marathon Fishing Charter Seasons

January

With clear waters in the backcountry, winter in Marathon Beach is a paradise for anglers. Sight fishing is the name of the game at this time: look out for tailing Redfish making their way through the shallow waters.

February

Inshore fishing continues to be very rewarding, with beautiful blue skies and nice temperatures sending away the winter blues. Bottom fishing for Snapper, Grouper and Amberjack is very good over the reefs and wrecks.

March

As the waters warm up for spring, numbers of baitfish increase. This brings the backcountry to life. Nearshore, watch out for migrating Manta Rays – there will almost always be a Cobia following them northwards up the coastline.

April

With average temperatures between 60 and 79 degrees, April in Marathon beach is very comfortable. Get out on the water and make the most of the nearshore bite: Cobia, Kingfish, and Sharks are all picking up this month.

May

Escape the crowds of Orlando and enjoy a relaxed day on the water in the lagoon or the Atlantic ocean. Warmer currents offshore bring pelagics like Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo within fishable range.

June

Tarpon fishing heats up along the beaches as the weather gets very warm. Afternoon storms are common, meaning a lot of charters will fish earlier in the morning. With calm nearshore waters, this is a perfect time for family fishing.

July

Some real rod-benders can be caught out of Marathon Beach in July. Summertime is perfect for battling a Shark in shallow waters close to shore, or even heading offshore for Tuna and Mahi Mahi. Bottom fishing is very good.

August

Temperatures are high and afternoon storms are common. With beaches full of vacationers, this is a good time to get out onto the peaceful waters inshore or to battle a Tarpon in Ponce Inlet. Offshore fishing remains very good. 

September

The Fall Mullet run attracts migratory fish close to shore. This is the time of year for huge Bull Redfish around the beaches and inshore waters. Don’t miss the annual FishStock festival for days of tournaments, talks, and bargains. 

October

The weather begins to get cooler, while the migration southwards continues. Catch Sailfish, Kingfish, Wahoo and more offshore, or make the most of the incredible Seatrout and Redfish bite in the Indian River.

November

As the weather transitions to winter, the inshore lagoons look increasingly appealing. Speckled Seatrout, Redfish, and Snook can be caught through February, while Wahoo, Sailfish, and Kingfish are biting well offshore.

December

Bottom fishing is great at this time of year, with Snappers and Groupers moving to closer reefs and wrecks. Inshore, you will find large quantities of Sheepshead making for some fun fishing and great eating over the holiday period.

Fishing in Marathon

★★★★★
We spent 3 days fishing with Captain Brad and could not have asked for a better guide!! My father who is 83 and who has some physical limitations, was fishing with my daughter and I. Brad was fantastic with my Dad. He was very patient and helpful and gave us all an exceptional trip! We caught a ton of fish and laughed and enjoyed ourselves all day long. I would recommend Brad to anyone who wants a guide who is an expert and who wants to have a fantastic fishing trip!
