Unusually productive deep dropping for golden tilefish has been putting smiles on the faces of some anglers off Marathon in the central Florida Keys, reports Andy Newman with the Florida Keys News Bureau. This monster weighed 38 pounds, Newman tells Sport Fishing it was caught in late March by angler Sara Michael while fishing with Capt. Nick Stanczyk on the Bn'M II, out of Islamorada.
