Marathon Florida Keys Fishing Report: great fishing for family from Canada

Captain Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters, Marathon Florida Keys, January 5, 2011


The Webb family – Brad, Kathy, Ty, Brandon and Bryce – spend late December and early January in Florida every year.  This year they decided to try the Island of Marathon and stayed at Tranquility Bay Resort, which they loved.

I took them to the reef in search of a tasty Florida Keys dinner.  They caught big mangrove snapper, yellowtail snapper, delicious hogfish and porgy.  Enough fillets to have several dinners at local Marathon restaurants.

They also caught a mess of king and Spanish mackerel, which I smoked and shipped back to Canada for them.

As a memento of their fishing adventure with SeaSquared Charters, Brad ordered one of our custom canvases framed in lobster trap art.  They plan to display it in their family room bar.
