Naples families join up in the Florida Keys to enjoy some fishing

Scott Douglas and Mark London, both from Naples, treated their sons to a Thanksgiving fishing holiday in the Florida Keys!

Marathon Florida Keys Fishing Report – Captain Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters – November 26, 2010

Nothing says quality family time like fathers and sons fishing together!  Scott Douglas and his son, Christopher, have fished with SeaSquared before.  Brother Andrew joined the family this time.  Mark London and his son Daniel completed the crew.

For non-stop rod bending action, I decided to fish in Florida Bay.  The two dads mostly watched as the boys put fish after fish in the boat.  They caught 20 nice size mangrove snapper to about 19 inches.  They caught and released a bunch of keeper Spanish and cero mackerel simply because they didn’t want them. 

The highlight of the day for Daniel was catching a gag grouper on his own rod.  Unfortunately, it was just a quarter inch shy of being dinner for the London family!
