You guys are killing it...Those docks look like Breezy Palms. Always nice when a hoo crashes a dolphin party.

yep breezy palms.. weather has been a little sloppy every morning. And glass by 4 pm.. which for us means beat up all day and scorching hot when cleaning fish... find a turtle find fish... birds on turtles...

Ran 30 miles out found one pack of birds on black fin. Picked 4 up and never seen another bird working.
Hope others had a better day!

For those of you in marathon, how is the current? Last weekend it was ripping too much for deep dropping and was hard to get to the bottom when anchored shallower on the reef. Hoping that it slows down a bit

Leaving Jacksonville this afternoon and will be in Duck Key tomorrow am! Really appreciate all the information in recent posts. Trailering the 266 sailfish, for the 2nd time this year. Our March trip was a disaster, wind at 15+ every day and blew a HP oil pump in one of my engines within the first hour we were there..... All in the past, and looking forward to some family fun in blue water. Testing my new outriggers.

Ill continue with posts, even as a novice just to let everyone know how things are going. Again, really appreciate THT comminity.

Best of luck, we were down there last week and had a blast. Has me REALLY wanting to get a bigger boat. Mine is a 2018 Sportsman 232 and it did great, really looking hard at a Sailfish. Let us know how you do.

with chiggers, Billy bait mini ts, and rattlejets are people running these naked or with ballyhoo??. I don't have any chuggers, but do have the other two mentioned.
think I should get a chugger considering I can only run a few lines at time? (I've got the rattle jets, Billy bait, tuna feather, baked hoo and skirted hoo, and deep diver plugs)

Seemed to change daily.. Blue and white islander (small one) and naked ballyoos had the most action on the troll for us.

Pink and white Dorado have been what I seen most hits on, blue and white was next best. Haven't tried a chugger this week, last week pulled pink and white chugger all day and had a few bonita but no table fish.

Default Marathon advice

We will be in Marathon June 22 - July 2. Any advise on deep dropping and mahi fishing? We will be bringing our key west fs219 and staying ocean side. Any advise would be very appreciated.

We ran all the way to 1500' today. Worked some weeds and birds, no luck. Came back in to deep drop and had a school of about a dozen fish swim by. We got 4 of them. Headed in stopped on a weedline in 350' and it was on. Managed 20. Tons of fish. Most had lock jaw some were so aggressive they were hitting the bait that slid up the line after the 1st fish was hooked.
