We booked a full day charter with Captain Ariel to catch Mahi-Mahi in early August, the boat is docked at the marina behind the Blue Green Resort in Marathon. Once we were all loaded up we left the dock at 7:00AM stopped at Burdines to fueled up and get ice then we were on our way. It was a beautiful day to spend on the water - Captain had us on the fish in about 1-1/2 hours and we never looked back. Once we found the fish, we were non-stop catching, a group of 6- 3 teenage boys, my husband, his friend and I all first time Mahi fishing and it was an unforgettable experience. First mate Joel was extremely helpful with everything, he explain to us exactly what we needed to do to hook these fish and how to bring more to the area for catching. We hauled in more then 30 by noon - sounds crazy right- before deciding to change it up tackle and try for grouper. Had some great fun fighting Amber jack to close the day out bring it in about 3:30. The boat was a 35' SeaVee with plenty of room for all of us and a very comfortable ride, like mentioned Joel the first mate handled everything for us making this trip one of our most memorable experiences in the Keys. Upon arriving back to the dock the Capt stood there and cleaned all the fish for us and packed it in ziplock lock bags, while we found shelter from the Florida sun at the tiki bar at the end of the dock and enjoyed sodas & Pina-colda's. It was a great finish to a long hot day on the water - more than worth the price. I highly recommend Capt. Ariel and Big Game Fishing he is very well known in the area, professional and long time established with over 20+ year experience in these waters - I wouldn't go with anyone else. What are you waiting for - give a call and book your charter now, you won't regret it!!
