Captain Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters, Marathon Florida Keys, January 5, 2011
The Webb family – Brad, Kathy, Ty, Brandon and Bryce – spend late December and early January in Florida every year. This year they decided to try the Island of Marathon and stayed at Tranquility Bay Resort, which they loved.
I took them to the reef in search of a tasty Florida Keys dinner. They caught big mangrove snapper, yellowtail snapper, delicious hogfish and porgy. Enough fillets to have several dinners at local Marathon restaurants.
They also caught a mess of king and Spanish mackerel, which I smoked and shipped back to Canada for them.
As a memento of their fishing adventure with SeaSquared Charters, Brad ordered one of our custom canvases framed in lobster trap art. They plan to display it in their family room bar.
