Marathon, Florida has some of the best wreck fishing in the Florida Keys. Divided by the Overseas Highway we have hundreds to choose from in the Atlantic Ocean as well as in the Gulf of Mexico. These wrecks are home to numerous species of Snapper, Grouper, Jacks, Cobia, and many more. On light tackle spinning rods using an assortment of live bait, cut bait, and even lures these fish put up a great fight. Weather and time of year determines where we recommend the best wreck fishing will be for your fishing charter.
In September 2017 Hurricane Irma rocked the Florida Keys but didn’t seem to harm the fishing. In just a short time after the storm our fishing charter customers were back out there having a blast on the Gulf of Mexico wrecks catching anything from Cobia to Goliath Grouper. In many ways the fishing has been actually better because of decreased fishing pressure. Contact us today to setup your Florida Keys Wreck fishing charter departing from our slips at The Island Fish Company Restaurant in Marathon.
Wreck fishing in the Florida Keys can be fun for all skill levels. This is because when the bite is on wreck fishing has a lot of action involved. Most of the time we start with just two fishing rods until everyone understands what needs to be done to successfully catch fish. Once everyone understands what needs to be done we can add two more rods allowing four customers to be fishing at one time. Please keep in mind this is generally speaking and under optimum fishing conditions.
