Islamorada - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing report for week ending 10/8

On Friday the 6th, I had a late afternoon trip for some snappers. I anchored in 60 feet of water and slide the chum over the side. The back of the boat boiled with fish, however, they weren't the large snappers that had been reported to me earlier that morning. I moved offshore to look for some bigger ones, but conditions were bad. A move back into the shallower water produced some larger fish. We fished until the sun when down. At the dock, I cleaned their limit of fish, and they returned to Naples with a nice bag of yellowtail fillets.

On Saturday the 7th, I ran a half day trip into the Everglades National Park. It took about a half hour to locate fish but, once we did it was nonstop action. It was the normal potpourri of fish Jack Crevalles the dreaded catfish, a lot of Ladyfish, sharks, a Spanish Mackerel and trout. We kept some trout for dinner; of which the largest one was 20 inches.

On Sunday afternoon, I fished two anglers for Tarpon. I netted some mullet and fish channel Five bridge. We had a lot of cuda bites; five tarpon in the air of which we landed two 20 pounders. I think that the cold front, we are having as I write this report, will put an end to the tarpon fishing. I will let you know.

Take a kid fishing, book a trip with a PRO. Give me a call.
