Captain Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters, Marathon Florida Keys, January 16, 2011
Bridget and Ryan Kilburg, from Sabula Iowa, chose the Florida Keys for their long overdue honeymoon, and they’re sure glad they did!
Among all sorts of Keys activities, they included a half day fishing with me on the SeaSquared. I took them to the humps in Hawk Channel to target snapper. The couple caught every variety of grouper – red, black, gag, even Nassau – all of which were released due to the closed season. They did bring a bounty of mangrove, lane and yellowtail snapper back to the dock along with a bonus delicious hogfish.
Bridget and Ryan are already talking about bringing their kids back for some dolphin fishing in the spring.
