Marathon is ready. Are you?
Florida Keys fishing is some of the best fishing in the world, and records have been set to prove it!
The lower Florida Keys are some of the sunniest and warmest places in the United States year round.
Our climate in the winter maintains at around 75-80 degrees with warmer days mixed in.

In the Gulfstream offshore of Marathon, the “Marathon Hump” rises from a depth of 1,150 feet to a mound of 480 feet.
It is located almost exactly in the middle of the Gulf Stream where the current runs the
Large eddy currents form from the constant easterly flow of the Gulf stream, forcing bait to the surface.
The bait draws larger fish which draws even larger fish and so on.

On a good day, hundreds if not thousands of terns will be feeding over schooling Black Fin Tuna and Dolphin crashing bait.
The feeding frenzy in turn attracts large numbers of sea birds and is a perfect way to find the fish like shark, white and blue marlin, amberjack, and black fin tuna.
In addition to the hump, the Gulf side of Marathon produces excellent game fishing because, unlike the rest of the Keys, the Gulf side, right on the other side of the Seven Mile Bridge, is deep with fewer flats and small islands.
So, when it’s too rough offshore, you can move over to the Gulf side and fish in much calmer water.
Whenever the weather in the north gets you down(and everything in the USA is north of here!), come enjoy the tropical paradise that is Marathon, and stop by for a day of fishing with Silent Hunter.
