Short trip yields big catch

Marathon Florida Keys Fishing Report, Capt. Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters, March 23, 2011

This family left their sea legs back in Illinois, so our half day charter turned into a quarter day charter.  But, what a productive two hours it was for Rex, Bernie and Patrick Revesz!

The dolphin were running pretty close inshore, so that was my first target.  We found a large school under some weeds, and the crew was just amazed by their flashing blue/green/yellow colors in the water.  Of course, my aim was to put as many of them in the boat as possible.  We put eight nice size gaffers – and a bonus blackfin tuna in the cooler when the call came to head back to the marina. 

As much as I don’t like leaving fish, I’m glad the Revesz family experienced just a little of the fantastic fishing we have here in the Middle Florida Keys!
