A surprise it was just how cool the Mile Marker 73 area is here in the Florida Keys. We wanted to take some photos of the famed Channel 2 Bridge. There is a nice parking area for people to get out and check out the views, and lots of people go fishing off the bridge. Having a safe area that is protected from the automobile traffic makes this Very Family Friendly fishing location.
It is so much cheaper to fish from the shore and bridges. It works too, as one can claim everything from Yellowtail Snapper to the famed Black-tip Sharks. Very fun it to get a big bit from the giant Tarpon Fish. Stop by and get your fishing bait up the street at Bud & Mary's Marina.
What makes it so fun to fish is all the boat traffic cruising by to see, so time goes fast. You can see down into the water, especially good when the winds are calm. Bridge Fishing gives you that extra advantage of sight fishing a larger area.
