Something a little different this Thanksgiving for the DeBartolo family

Tom and Christy DeBartolo, from St. Louis MO, treated their four college age kids to a Thanksgiving in Marathon.

Marathon Florida Keys Fishing Report – Captain Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters, November 25, 2010

The DeBartolos purchased a vacation home in Marathon about a year ago and the family gathered there for Thanksgiving this year.  Since it was a year to create new traditions, they included a half day of fishing.

Since the family members are mostly admitted novices to fishing, I opted for the calm waters of Florida Bay.  We targeted snapper and mackerel, always sure fire for constant rod bending.  The gang caught mangrove snapper, a 25-inch gag grouper caught by Tom and all the mackerel anyone could possible handle, including one very large 10-pound cero that Lucy landed.

Back at the dock, the family agreed it was a very enjoyable way to spend Thanksgiving.  The crew was Tom and Christy DeBartolo and their children Mary, Gil, Ann and Lucy.
