Inshore Fishing Florida for Mangrove Snapper
One of our fondest memories lies in the photo you see above. Taking our children fishing from an early age was a given. Any time dad had a day open these girls were tugging on our shirttails to make sure we were up and out the door early. Savannah and Mekenzie knew once summer came around we would be heading toward Sebastian to fish in the shallow water. Our girls loved going to Sebastian Inlet. As young children, they could get out of the boat to fish, we swam and played in the tide pool, and we even brought our surfboards to catch a few waves.
This particular day we caught mangrove snapper one after another. The girls couldn’t get them in the boat fast enough! The pure joy and excitement you see are all that was needed to fill their love tank.
After a great day on the water, we came home and cooked up the fish we caught. A delicious dinner surely topped off our evening and all the girls could talk about was going back the next day to find some more of those mangrove snappers!
We hope you enjoy the video, and maybe, Captain Richard will have the opportunity to get you and your family out on one of our inshore fishing charters in Florida.
