Florida Keys shark fishing adventure for Texas couple

Captain’s Blog – May 26, 2010 – Jimmy and Jan Tindol were honeymooning in Marathon Florida Keys and spent part of their trip in pursuit of toothy critters with SeaSquared Charters.

Our deckhand, DJ Luppens, has worked with us on and off for a few years.  This was his first shark fishing adventure in the Florida Keys.  I think he had as much fun as the Tindols!

It was a hot, breezy day but the conditions were calm as always in the bay where we shark fish.  We had amassed quite the variety of shark bait.  When we got to our spot, anchored up and put the bait in the water it didn’t take long at all for the guests of honor to appear.

We had an endless supply of sharks around the boat – nurse sharks and lemon sharks.  At times, they were actually swarming and we could see 6 – 7 – 8 of them right beside us.  Jimmy and Jan both did a great job bringing them in.  They caught and released 15 lemon sharks up to 7 feet long.  Pretty work!

The Tindols had such a great time, they purchased a video of their trip from our media partner
