The Lueken/Watson fishing adventure proves quality family time is ageless.
Marathon Florida Keys Fishing Report – Captain Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters – September 22 and 24, 2010
Patty and Whit Lueken, from Little Rock Arkansas, brought her parents, Lavon and Evelyn Watson, to the Florida Keys for a little fishing and a lot of family time. They spent a day and a half fishing with SeaSquared Charters.
Our first outing was to the calm bay waters where we wanted to catch dinner and a show. We spent the early part of the day sport fishing for sharks. The gang caught 8 nice size lemon sharks up to about 6 feet in length. Ninety-year-old Lavon really proved that Florida Keys shark fishing adventures are great for anglers of all ages!
After we wore them out with the sharks, we hit a couple of Gulf wrecks to land dinner. The anglers caught a bunch of fat mangrove snapper, some Spanish mackerel and a bonus yellowjack.
Day two was spent in the bay venues as well, and the group caught their limit of good size mangrove snapper, with Lavon landing one of the largest at 18 inches (about 4 pounds).
Admittedly skeptical about the excitement of shark fishing, Patty commented at the end of the first day, “I am now very impressed. I couldn’t have caught anymore sharks without having a nap. Lots of fun and lots of fight.”
