What to bring on a Fishing Charter in Marathon FL

Are you wondering what to bring on a fishing charter you have coming up?  Here’s a list of things that we recommend:

1.) Camera – It might be good to keep it in a zip lock bag as well.  But, you’ll need to snap a picture of that prized fish!

2.) Jackets/Rain Gear- Make sure to check the weather the night before and even the day of – as we all know, weather changes frequently.

3.) Wear Sneakers – if you can, no slip soles would be the best idea.

4.) You may want to pack a drink, snack or cooler with you.  That sun is pretty dehydrating and so is pulling in that big fish you’re going to catch!

Don’t over pack or over think this. The main thing to worry about is to make sure you have a good time!

Fish on in the Florida Keys!

Another good week fishing in Marathon with more of our Northern customers.  Steve Hessler and his son from New Hampshire had a great day aboard the “Fishin Fool” catching their limit of mangrove snappers and a few sharks and grouper.  Brian Councell and Beth, our boat neighbors from Rock Hall, spent a few days with us, catching sharks, snappers and we even tried our luck at Tarpon fishing!  Tarpon rolled all around us, Brian had one on for a few seconds, but spit the hook.  Very exciting! This week we welcome to town Phil and Patrick Jackson from DE (they took their fish to their favorite place, Burdines for a great meal), Tom and Kathy Wieliczko from NJ, Kevin Conboy from Long Island, NY.  No fishing today, weather permitting we will be back out this week.
