Fishing in Marathon

With its name already foreshadowing the city’s tremendous angling potential, Marathon is the one Middle Keys fishery you’re not going to regret mastering. The historic Bahia Honda and Seven Mile bridges are often revered as some of the most productive Silver King hotspots along the entire island chain, hosting opulent Tarpon stocks virtually every spring and summer. Just a bit further, a chorus of coral and artificial reefs serve as a veritable fishing buffet all year round, abundant with Yellowtail, Mangrove and Mutton Snapper, as well as Grouper, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda and several shark species. If bluewater fishing is your poison, the notorious Marathon Hump is baitfish central, acting as an ideal feeding ground for a range of voracious pelagics, including everything from Amberjacks and Blackfin Tuna to Blue Marlin and Mako sharks. And should the weather ever decide not to fully cooperate with your fishing plans, count on Marathon to come up with a plan B real quick; the shallow areas of Florida Bay are a popular alternative for when the seas get just a bit too bumpy, its prolific wrecks and ledges sacrificing little in sportfishing quality. On the other hand, the nearby backwaters of the Everglades National Park and Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge combine premier fishing for Snook, Redfish and Gator Trout with a remarkable scenery, made alive by a vivid variety of wildlife you’re almost guaranteed to come across while casting away.
