Islamorada Sea Horse off shore

Islamorada - Saltwater Fishing Report

Islamorada Sea Horse Off Shore Report

Off Shore Report: Mahi Mahi fishing has been outstanding for the past two weeks. More Mahi have been caught lately than we have seen in the past couple years. The charter boat fleet and local anglers have been catching their limit of fish daily. Mostly nice size fish that are legal size have been caught on chunks of bait like squid or bonita. No live bait necessary lately. Hopefully this great fishing will continue for a while.

Yellow tail snapper have been caught in large quantities by commercial and recreational anglers. Popular reefs like "Davis Reef", have been a local favorite hot spot. The Mutton Snappers have been caught regularly around the some wrecks and deeper reefs. The muttons started spawning and seem to eat just about any bait you get down to them.

Coach Jimmy Johnson has been fishing often for Mahi off the Tavener area. He has been fishing by himself catching some impressive fish. He enjoys trolling with Ballyhoo and small inline lures. Truly remarkable his ability to find and catch fish alone on the high seas. Nice work Coach

Back Country Report: Lots of Tarpon around the bridges in the Islamorada area. Live Mullet and Mahi bellies have been the top two best baits for catching Tarpon. Sea Trout, Black Drum, Sharks, and Mangrove Snappers have been consistently caught throughout Florida Bay.

Islamorada Fishing Forecast:

Off Shore Forecast: Look forward to more Mahi and Swordfish action further off Shore. The bigger Mahi hopefully will come through in large numbers similar to schoolies this spring. Deep drop fishing will probably continue to be outstanding throughout the summer. It seems like the deeper you fish the more you catch. Depending on the velocity of the current some days will be more productive than others.

Target Species:

mani mani and everything else
