The King Mackerel bite in the Florida Keys is usually hot by Christmas and this year is no exception as we have been having some great action on light tackle getting some decent sized Kings on live bait around deep wrecks and on the deep reef edge. Live Pilchards and Goggle Eyes have been the best baits and some kings have been pushing the 35lb mark lately. These fast moving hard fighting fish will give you a huge thrill as they scream drag on a few long runs!
Sailfish have been biting also, showing up on the color change in 120ft. Of water and also coming up on the reef chasing ballyhoo in 25-50′ depths. Get in on some of this great action if you are coming to Marathon this holiday season. You can reach me at 305-699-8485 to set up a sailfish charter in the Florida Keys! Good luck in all your fishing adventures!
