Marathon flat fishing.

Hey gang
I'm going to Hawks cay (marathon area in the keys) in December and want to do a back country flat fishing trip. (Not with my boat)
Anyone has any recommendation?
Thanks.

Can't help you with that, but if the fish aren't biting you could head a few miles south to Sugarloaf Key and go tandem skydiving. I just did that this past weekend and it was a hoot--10,000 feet up gives you a great view of the Keys!

Captain Fred's in Islamorada is a good place to go.

I did a group charter trip out of Islamorada and it was a blast. There was also a restaurant where you could bring your catch and they would cook it up for you.

So Jealous... Last time I was down there I found a guy on Craigslist who took me out on a flats trip. I had to buy my own license but it was a lot cheaper than a charter and we caught a ton of fish. His post had a picture of his gear and you could tell he knew what he was doing while reading the post. He had a little Hewes if I remember correctly. Good luck!

Saltwater Experience charters out of Hawks and is a top notch outfit, they know the area very well and are always set up with the latest and greatest boats from Yellowfin and full range of gear.

I spent a good bit of time in Marathon a couple years ago for work. Unfortunately I didn't get to fish the flats, but I did eat at the Keys Fishery and it was awesome.

As for the Keys from 10000 ft I feel it's a little over rated. We did an aerial survey from ~1200 ft and the water looked beautiful! I'll let you be the judge.

Love the Keys. Big family vacation on Cudjoe every year for mini season.

The MC stays home of course Brother In Law has the salt water vessel taken care of.

Enjoy the trip!
