With his son, Daniel, going off the college in the fall, Jim Pietaro wanted to share a special day with him by doing some Florida Keys fishing.
Visiting Marathon Florida Keys from Trumbull CT for the first time and staying at Tranquility Bay Resort, the pair also wanted to make sure we fished in calm waters. So, I took them to some channels near the Seven Mile Bridge and to a couple of my spots in Florida Bay.
They were amazed at the variety of species that ended up on their hooks – grouper, yellowtail snapper, hogfish, porgy, mangrove snapper and more. When they had their limit of mangies, we headed back to the dock.
I hope they created memories to last forever as Daniel sets out on the next chapter of his life.
