Make sure you get a guide that knows where to go for the fish. Our guy did not. We went on a fishing trip with a guy from our campground and caught a load of fish. So it's all in knowing how and where the fish are going to be.

Even with unsettled weather the action was great. My boys and I are experinced fresh water fisherman and have had great days boating 25 to 30 keeper smallmouth in a day. The fishing in Marathon matched our best days on the water. Nothing but two thumbs up!

Charter a boat with restroom and cover, sun is brutal. Size matters too because if you go deep sea fishing, hitting the waves will call for chiropractor visits lol. It's raw nature and confort is second. Fishing was good...

July is hot and can be a slow time to fish. Be sure you know if your targeted fish are here when you plan the time of your trip.

Get a guide like Captain Buddy LaPointe that knows exactly where the fish are running at any time of the year or day.

Take your time, fish in shore and near shore on your own, but make sure to take an off shore charter!

Scrutinize the captain closely. The captain we thought we hired was in Michigan chartering fishing trips. His business won't last long down here if he doesn't clean up his act.

Sure. We have fished here on 3 prior occasions with fun and success. This was the one bad experience, and was due to the captain.

Be prepared to fish various sites. Between the potential winds and cooler waters one might have to try various techniques and locations to catch the fish,

It was windy and cold in November. Check the weather for all the possible days you can fish and pick your fishing day.
