Sore arms all around for Illinois families

Marathon Florida Keys Fishing Report, Capt. Chris Johnson, SeaSquared Charters, February 21, 2011

These Illinois families were not about to let a little fender bender in the rental car in Key West keep them off the water!  An escape to Tranquility Bay Resort from cold Bloomington IL was filled with all sorts of adventures, including a fishing trip with SeaSquared Charters.

Dave, Maggie and Mitch Turner along with Doug, Betsy and Lindsey Wiggs had a great half day of fishing in Hawk Channel off Marathon.  It was non-stop action with about a gazillion grouper (all released) plus hogfish, mangrove and yellowtail snapper and porgy.  They also went 2 for 5 on kingfish, including a big 15-pounder, on 12-pound test.

They dined like royalty at Porky’s Bayside BBQ in beautiful Old Town Marathon!
