The fishing

Fishing out of Marathon in Florida’s Middle Keys gives the angler a wide choice of options – and fishing from his 28” Parker center console, Captain Chris Johnson covers pretty much all of them.

The Gulf stream runs off Marathon, and provides a great opportunity for challenging offshore sport from dorado (mahi mahi), tuna, sailfish and wahoo. For a more-or-less-guaranteed bend in the rod, wreck/reef and bay charters are available, with target species including grouper, snapper, mackerel, amberjack, cobia and permit. The backcountry of the Florida Keys is also one of the best places to fish for sharks, with lemons, black-tips bulls and hammerheads resident in big numbers. But perhaps the most famous resident of all is the tarpon, or silver king as it’s known round these parts. Captain Chris runs charters to two of the Keys’ most famous tarpon grounds – the Seven Mile Bridge and the Bahia Honda Bridge.

Whatever option you choose, a trip with SeaSquared Charters comes with this promise: “You will use high-quality tackle that is always in excellent condition. Captain Chris fishes with both live and dead baits as well as various artificial baits. His policy is to take more bait with him than he’ll actually use.”

Split charters can also be arranged.
