The Pittham family, from West Sussex England, had a blast wrangling sharks during their first time to the Florida Keys.
Steve, Margaret, Chris and Dan Pittham, along with Tatia Hayes, are staying at the lovely Indigo Reef and having a great time discovering all that Marathon has to offer for a family vacation.
Upon our departure, the crew admitted they are “complete novices” when it comes to fishing. But that’s what is so awesome about catch-and-release shark fishing. Anyone can do it and have fun!
I had not been to my shark spot in a couple of weeks, so I was very glad to see all my friends welcome me like a long-long cousin. Once they starting taking our baits, everyone was hooked up.
The majority of the sharks – all lemons – today were well over the six-foot mark, with the biggest one we released easily going about seven and a half feet.
In just under four hours, they caught and released 12 lemon sharks. Once back at the dock, the gang all agreed it was a fantastic experience that their sore arms won’t let them forget anytime soon!
