About Your Guide

The family has grown up in Marathon, FL since the 1960’s and have been in the Commercial & Charter Fishing business since the 70’s.

Winning many Tournaments over the North Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico; Sailfish, Marlin, Tarpon, and many others, the family is well known and regarded as such. His father Joe, a WW2 Hero, gave Captain Brad the gift of fishing & making people happy, and to this day he does this to the best of his ability, trying to make his grandfather proud. The family business now has 5 kids; Todd, Dylan, Isabella, Saraha, and Luca. His oldest son Todd is a 100grt Master Captain and also runs fishing charters. The rest are to follow. The family is looking forward to making a lasting impression, an incredible fishing experience for you and your family.

The Florida Keys are a beautiful location to catch some of the finest fish in the world.

Fish the reefs and wrecks for yellowtail, mangrove, and mutton snapper, along with grouper, mackerel, and barracuda. With its beautiful coral reefs, Marathon is directly in the middle of 170 mile long natural reef.

Offshore, troll for Gulfstream pelagics such as sailfish, dolphin fish, and wahoo. The Marathon West Hump rises from depths of 1,100 feet to a peak of 480 feet, an underwater platform that is a veritable dinner table for gamefish, like blue and white marlin, blackfin tuna, amberjack and sharks.

During the spring months, you can even target the Silver King, Tarpon, inshore. Captain Brad claims that “fishing the Florida Keys is one of the great wonders of the world.” Come and experience it with his charters. You’ll even have the opportunity to see first-hand the magical underwater world as you snorkel, or try spearfishing – just let the captain know in advance. At the end of the day, the crew will clean and prepare your catch for you to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Marathon’s tarpon fishing is explosive, and one of the most action-filled ways a novice angler can catch a large fish.

Mahi Mahi with its beautiful colors and reel screaming runs is of the best table fair fish that anglers from around the world come to catch !

We had a great experience with Brad and his mate, Miles! We caught a bunch of yellow tail snapper and a big red mutton snapper. They were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend them for your next charter!

Captain Brad and Miles were TOP NOTCH! You do not want to miss out on fishing with these gentlemen! We went out for a half day trip and caught a ton of yellowtail snapper and some mutton grouper! We went out deeper but came up short (we had SO many chances) but that was ok! The boat was crazy fast and very high tech, these guys know where the fish are!!! Unforgettable and very enjoyable experience! Thank you Captain Brad and Miles- you guys gave us an experience we will be talking about forever, and not to mention the most delicious fish we have ever cooked in our lives- and that is saying a lot coming from Massachusetts!!!! We will definitely be coming back next year to fish with you guys again!!!❤️

We had a blast with Captain Brad and his crew Miles and Whitney! The boat had a toilet, lots of comfortable and covered seating for those that were not fishing. They were great with instructions and techniques on how to land the catch! They knew all the hot spots and we had enough fish to feed an army dinner!

Our group had 5 people with little to no fishing experience. Brad took us to fish for yellowtale first, about 35 minutes away from the dock. He and his hand Miles showed us how to use the rods properly and we caught about 10 or 12 yellowtales. They were both very friendly and helpful, we all felt comfortable and had a good time. Unfortunately some of us got sea sick so we decided to cut the trip short. Brad had cautioned us about that beforehand and offered to move our trip to a day with calmer weather, what we would have done would we have had the time. We would definitely go with Brad again. He is a friendly local guy and he made the trip fun and personal, not at all commercial like some of the bigger boats. He knows the area and waters very well.
