Marathon Key

Postby woolybugger » Thu Apr 05, 2012 11:09 am

I'm going to Marathon Key in June. Anyone know a flats guide they would recommend? How about a charter captain for a family trip? Any advice for kayak fishing on my own?
Thanks to all.

For a family trip I recommend Skye Stanley out of Robbies Marina near Islamorada. He is a good guy and great with kids. I took mine (then 7 and 10) out with him for some wreck fishing and he was great about getting my kids on AJs and grouper with gear, then me on some big cudas with the fly.

He mated for Billy Knowles in the Miami Sail-Fly a couple years ago when a friend of mine won it with 3 sails on fly. (The rest of the fleet took a total of 4 on fly). The guy is very talented.
