Capt. Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters, Marathon Florida Keys
One of the beauties of fishing in the Middle Florida Keys is the awesome choice of venues we have, all within easy reach of our marina.
John Connell and his group, from Oconomowoc WI, had hoped to do some shark fishing during their Florida Keys vacation, but the waters were a little chilly for that to be productive. So, I switched to Plan B and headed to the waters near the Seven Mile Bridge.
We lost count, but the guys must have caught 250 fish. They kept their limit of delicious mangrove snapper ranging from 14 to 16 inches. So, no toothy critters but plenty of good-eating fillets! And, lots of camaraderie on a sunny day with the world-famous Seven Mile Bridge as the backdrop. Sounds like vacation to me.
The crew included John Connell, Jason Stangler and John Trezesniewski.
