Marlin (Blue) Fishing in Key West
The Keys are located at an ideal geographical position for Blue Marlin fishing (as well as myriads of other species), being set up as a kind of a gate into the Gulf, through which these fish follow the loop current. Key West offers the best access to Wood's Wall, which is a sharp drop off ledge some 20 miles offshore towards the south, rife with bluewater pelagics.
Another perk of Key West billfishing is that all the necessary baitfish are also right there for the taking. Starting the day trolling for Bonito, Skipjack or Blackfin Tuna only to use them as bait for Marlin afterwards... Fishing doesn't get much better than that. Most Blues in these waters don't go over the 250lbs mark, which makes them suitable for stand-up fishing.
If there is a guide in Key West that can put you on Blue Marlin, it's captain Jason and his High Stakes Charters.

"February fishing trip"
Had a great time caught 4 fish 2 got a way will be back this Summer to fish for Marlin and Sail Fish Eddie the First Mate was bar none the very best.
"Half day trip with Captain John Potter"
Excellent experience. Caught (and released) Tiger Shark, and few others like Grouper. Very professional and knowledgeable crew. Highly recommended. Will be coming back for Marlin fishing. We were pressed for time, otherwise would have stayed longer in Keys.
Cant imagine rhat there is better fishingcharter in Key West. The boat is realy nice and the crew is excellent. Caught a realy nice wahoo +45 and some barracuda. But the highlite was that we got a Blue Marlin +400 on the hook for over an hour. That was a memory for life to feel that crazy power on the hook.
