August 5, 2011

Families and friends from New Jersey, Florida, Georgia, Arizona, Connecticut and even Canada fished on the SeaSquared this week.

They caught lots of delicious snapper to enjoy cook-your-catch at Marathon's fine restaurants.

Two groups also enjoyed catch-and-release shark fishing.  Quite appropriate for Shark Week!

Family Fishing 
SeaSquared Charters is NUMBER ONE for family fun fishing!



As summer winds down and the beginning of another school year looms, the Keys are filled with families taking some quality vacation time together.


There's no better activity than fishing for family members to reconnect with each other. Nothing beats a day on the water without electronic interruptions - TV, computer, cell phone, video games.


A little friendly competition adds to the experience. We can even set up your own mini-tournament. Who caught the first fish? The biggest? The most? The strangest?


An excellent option for family fun fishing is a trip to the reef or Florida Bay.


Snapper of all variety - yellowtail, mangrove, mutton, and lane - are plentiful on the reef and offer endless rod-bending action with tasty rewards. A bonus black or red grouper may make it into the fish box also.


On a breezy day, we head to the calmer waters in Florida Bay for action-packed mangrove snapper fishing. Incredibly hard-fighting fish for their size, mangroves are superior table fare.



Another family-friendly option is shallow-water catch-and-release shark fishing in Florida Bay.   


This fishing offers an eco twist as it allows anglers to observe sharks interacting with each other in their natural environment.



While it's certainly a blast to catch a bunch of fish, it's a ton of fun when you get to eat them too. After a day of fishing, reward yourself with a cook-your-catch family dinner at any of the fine restaurants in the Middle and Lower Florida Keys.


Be sure to celebrate the winners of your mini-tournament!


It's never too early to start planning for your Christmas and winter vacation!
