Heading to the Keys in April & staying in Marathon. We are taking the Yaks with us. Was wondering if you guys had any advice on any good areas on or around Marathon to fish at from the Yaks & Bridges or Banks?

Can't directly help on places... but in general MArathon is a good part of the Keys and any plce you can launch should give you access to good enough fishing... Gulf side flats, mangroves, canals, Ocean Side flats with hard bottom.

Marathon is far enough away from Miami you don;t have to deal with the weekend'r crowds, and close enough to Key West for a day trip. It has over the years become rather populated, but not as bad as the upper Keys.

I'd have to say if you want to fish bridges and cuts be very aware of the tides, the tidal flow can be very fast through any cut especially in/under/around bridges.

Thanks for the tips. I have been on google & youtube looking at spots but was hoping for some other general areas that may not show up on the usual websites.

Be very careful around the bridges, especially when the tide is ripping.

I have not saw that video but I have seen other videos by him & they are really good. That video did note some spots I have not found so far, thanks for that.
