Our trip to the reef.


To celebrate my husband’s birthday we decided to take a trip aboard the Marathon Lady. She is a 73 foot fishing party boat. We decided to go on the 9:30am trip so we headed out early with our rods and sunblock. The boat goes all the way out to the reef and hangs out in 20-40 feet of water. They rent out rods, have beer and sodas, and a super helpful staff. The fishing wasn’t too hot, but we ended up catching a decent amount of fish. Christopher caught a few mangrove snapperΒ and grunts. I caught a big eye torro fish and more grunts. You can pay the deck boys to filet up your catch and so we did. We ended up with a total of 18 fish, and over 2 lbs of fish filets. It was a great time. My only suggestion is to make sure you drink PLENTY of water. It was literally insane hot out there. Don’t forget the sunblock either!!20130613-115953.jpg

For the cost if was a good deal. 45 dollars a person. I think I would much rather prefer fishing on my own vessel though. Not enough room to cast, and too many people etc. It is a totally fun time though. Can’t find a nicer crew anywhere.
