Florida Keys Fishing Report – Captain Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters – July 7, 2010
The Halls, from Orange Park FL, returned to the Florida Keys for their family vacation and included a fishing trip with SeaSquared Charters.
We set off for the reef to get in on the great grouper and snapper bite. With rods bent non-stop, the group put fish after fish in the boat. Despite having her foot in a walking cast, 13-year-old Carley really held her own!
We returned to the dock with a bunch of fat mangrove snapper to 5 pounds, yellowtail snapper up to 26 inches and a 12-pound black grouper. The highlight of the day was one of the prettiest fish ever to make its way onto the SeaSquared – a 7-pound yellowfin grouper.
As with most of the groups who fish with SeaSquared Charters, the Hall family planned to have their catch cooked at one of Marathon’s fine restaurants.
