We'll be coming down to fish in the middle keys next week (Feb 18 - Feb 24). We're staying in Marathon.

We won't be bringing our boat so we'll be fishing from shore, bridges, etc.

Although we're certainly not newbie fishermen . . . . we are newbies to fishing the keys.

I was thinking about bringing down my 10' Med weight surf rod and my 7 1/2' Med/Hvy weight spinning rod. Do I need to bring my surf gear?

Any tips for this time of year? Locations, species, bait, gear, technique, etc. etc.?

Thank you very much!!!

I spent a week in Marathon this past December and was really surprised at how
they have built the fishing piers alongside the highway.
a wagon or some kind of cart is strongly recommended - some are quite a walk.

we used the 6' medium spinning rods - but you are fishing in the ocean, big stuff in the ocean.
some of the older vintage motels have docks in the back to moor a boat or fishing
right from the dock...... very convenient.
