This is the spot for Florida Keys Fishing. Take your pick, as for Offshore Fishing we target Billfish, Wahoo, Dolphin. Out on the reefs go for Grouper and Snapper.
Inside Bay Fishing is best for Tarpon and Cobia. You can go oceanside or stay in the backcountry with the waterway access very deep to the ramp.
Keys Fisheries, bar and restaurant is one block over. This is one of the best spots to take off On a Boat. It is blessed by the location, because of the boat access.
We get our bait at the Tackle Box. Have to also comment how much we love the food, music, and fun at Porky's Bar, at 1400 Overseas Highway. For chinese go with the Panda House Chinese Restaurant and it is yummy.
A nice ramp, just very short on parking spaces. Open 24-7 and free to use. Just perfect to go fishing, this is the main public Marathon Florida Keys boatramp...where you go left out towards the Seven Mile Bridge or right out to Vaca Cut and Key Colony Beach.
A beautiful day on the water and was nice to get some HD video footage of the 33rd street downtown boat ramp. We fish Marathon and the rest of the Florida Keys. This is the ramp to use in the city center, south of the 7 mile bridge.
I am getting my new center console boat tomorrow, not on Friday...thank goodness! Let's do some happy hour bars by boat and break it in Florida Keys Style!
We (commercial fishing folks) are working with the local marinas and the City of Marathon encouraging them to develop better parking for boaters. Local hotels have parking too, but we need more boat parking in Marathon. Key Colony is good for condo packages, boater friendly rentals, and special rates during off season.
Nice video of the boat ramp. We have a lot of great fishing and boater friendly restaurants. Watch the winds. Come see us at Boot Key Marina. Our ship store has all the gear, bait & fishing supplies, slip pump out, fueling, showers, laundry, and more.
On the way down to the Middle Keys you can use the Harry Harris County Park. Look for the ramp at MM-93, it has two lanes oceanside at 55 East Beach Drive.
