Marathon FL, Summertime Fishing Possibilities

(June – October) fishing is all about fishing deeper waters because the water temperatures are so high. We often see water temperatures of 88 degrees offshore to over 92 degrees on the shallow water flats. During our summer time fishing trips we recommend fishing offshore trips for Mahi Mahi and Tuna. Most of these trips are on the larger 36′ boat because we fish anywhere from 6- 30 miles offshore to find the large schools of fish. These offshore trips are a minimum of 6 hours if not 8 so we are successful at catching fish.

Mahi Mahi AKA -Dorado or Dolphin fish. Blackfin Tuna, Bonitas, and Jacks.
