FISHIN’ IN THE FLORIDA KEYS Unforgettable Father-Son Fishing Adventure T here’s absolutely nothing better than getting out on the water, fighting and reeling in a big fish. That’s why, when spring break rolled
I called Captain Bannerot last minute, and luckily, he was able to take us on a full-day fishing trip.We were incredibly fortunate because it wouldn’t have been the same fishing trip without him. I called and made reservations for Jonathan and me to stay at the Ocean View Inn at Islamorada, which is a very clean “old-school” style motel with only seven rooms, a nice restaurant, supposedly the oldest liquor license in the Florida Keys, a swimming pool, and a private dock. It was a day of nonstop reeling and fun.We limited out on both the mangrove snapper and the Spanish mackerel.We caught a bunch of difference species of fish; amongst them were grouper, yellowtail, and blue runners. Jonathan even caught a 200-pound lemon shark! When you’re looking for a time to enjoy excitement and adventure with your son, watching his face light up as he hooks a huge fish is a great place to start.After a day on the water, we had dinner at the famous Shrimp Shack, and then we launched the skiff from a natural boat ramp off the side of the Overseas Highway for an evening fishing trip. Jonathan and I made this trip one that we will never forget! Even though it was a short trip with a lot of driving, we took advantage of the time we had together and made memories from here to the Keys and back. Seizing the moment meant a lot to both of us.We are looking forward to another trip to the Keys this summer!
around last month, there couldn’t have been a more perfect trip for my son and me. Time was winding down, and we only had a couple of days to make the expedition happen, but when Jonathan said, “Dad, let’s not waste spring break — let’s do something fun!” something clicked, and I knew exactly what I needed to do. After getting the last-minute green light from Alison, I made a couple of calls, and we packed our stuff, loaded the skiff, and at 4 a.m., we left for the beautiful Florida Keys. “WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A TIME TO ENJOY EXCITEMENT AND ADVENTURE WITH YOUR SON, WATCHING HIS FACE LIGHT UP AS HE HOOKS A HUGE FISH IS A GREAT WAY TO START.” I called two fishing charter captains to see about getting Jonathan and I out on the water with some nice fish. I called my long-time friend, Captain Vic Tison, a local charter captain, who had nothing available. Feeling adventurous and looking to make a more substantial trip out of Jonathan’s spring break, I called Florida Keys fishing charter captain Scott Bannerot. I met Captain Bannerot on a previous vacation in the Florida Keys.We’d previously fished with Captain Bannerot a couple of times, and he has become a friend. Captain Bannerot is, hands down, one of the best fishing charter guides in the Florida Keys.With a master’s degree in Marine Biology and over 20 years’ experience running charters all over the globe, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone better.
