  • This is the best place to buy tackle and bait in Marathon. I brought 4 rods in and the owner installed new reels, line, and tackle on all of them. He took the time (1 hour) to show my teenage boys how to tie knots and bait hooks. He also hooked us up with bait and fishing coordinates for some of the best fishing around Marathon! Thanks again for all your help!
  • Always smiling, helpful people! I love supporting this family ran business! Great service and support for your fishing needs.
  • Great bait shop. One stop shop with everything you need to fish including good advice. Was hoping to catch shark but still did good.
  • Very knowledgeable staff. First time fishing the keys, they told me where to fish what bait to use, how to rig my lines and we caught more than 2 dozen fish in approximately 2hours. Highly recommend!!!
  • This is THE place to go here in Marathon! Friendly advice given to tourists and locals alike. Need to know where the fish are and what is biting? Stop on in, the fishing reports at the shop are always right on! I have been shopping here for a long time, prices are great, selection is awesome and they even make custom lures and do rod and reel repair! Unlike other shops they always have live bait, and a good supply of chum on hand.

Where to stay in Marathon

A large resort is an ideal choice for a family vacation. These vacation complexes often have a pool and provide a wide range of activities to keep children entertained. Marathon’s small hotels or inns are good options for a more romantic break. Renting a private waterfront vacation property provides a luxurious home away from home for those with time for a longer visit.
