I grew up visiting the keys for family vacations, and now we try to continue that tradition as often as possible. There’s no shortage of things to do in the keys, from relaxing to swimming and snorkeling, and shopping. There’s something for everyone. But one of my favorite things to do is fishing. It can be expensive to get private charters so we usually go the party boat route. We like to go on the Marathon Lady. Last time we went, we caught tons of fish, even a couple mackerel. The fishing was so good, that we went back out on the afternoon boat too. They will filet your fish for you for $1/fish which is well worth it when you’re vacationing and don’t have the necessary supplies to do it yourself. We took our catch back to our hotel and grilled up an awesome dinner with the fish and veggies. We had enough to last 3 nights. Nothing like fresh caught fish dinner!
