fishing in Florida Bay.  The intention is not to limit out on snapper, but to catch enough for a nice dinner.

The most prevalent species of snapper you’ll catch in the Bay is mangrove snapper. Averaging two to six pounds, mangroves are incredibly hard-fighting fish for their size. The smaller fish are a blast to catch for anglers of all ages and abilities, and the larger specimens will test the talents of even the most seasoned angler.

The mangrove’s sweet, white meat is excellent table fare. There’s nothing finer than a platter of mangrove snapper prepared your favorite way – fried, grilled, blackened, baked – at one of Marathon’s many restaurants that offer cook-your-catch.

You may also catch yellowtail snapper, porgy, mackerel, hogfish and possibly even some grouper – all depending on the time of year.

Charter Fishing Fans!

Had a great time and catch with Capt Jason; inshore and offshore. Jason is a great guide; super nice and engaging. Will definitely recommend him and use him again.

We fished with Capt. Jason and had a blast. He was great with the boys very laid back and put us on the fish. He dealt with me getting sick nearly the whole trip and didn’t skip a beat. Hope to fish with you guys again. Thanks for helping our family create irreplaceable memories!

Crystal macLaren

We had an amazing time fishing with Captain Jason! He took time to explain everything and helped out the entire time. We’ve never been salt water fishing and he made it all so easy. We’ll be back for sure!
