Marathon Florida Keys Fishing Report, Capt. Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters, March 28, 2011
The extended Wiesman family enjoyed some fun fishing with tasty rewards during their vacation in Marathon.
The crew from Tampa included Neil and Karolyn Weisman, their children 6 year-old Aaron and 4 year-old Madison, plus Uncle Michael Weisman. With small children on board I always head to one of my calmer spots where I know the action will keep their attention.
We fished near the Seven Mile Bridge. The anglers released a couple of short hogfish and small grouper but put together a tasty catch of large three-pound porgy along with mangrove and yellowtail snapper.
I always enjoy having kids on the boat, especially when they are as well behaved and into the fishing as Aaron and Madison were. Can’t wait to have them back!
