Islamorada - Saltwater Fishing Report
Islamorada Sea Horse Off Shore Report
Report: Black Fin Tunas, Reef fishing for Snappers, and deep drop fishing for Swordfish have been the most productive types of fishing. The passing storm shook things up and caused some wonderful fishing conditions for Sailfish that we normally would not encounter during the fall. Good size Kingfish have started showing up around deep reefs and local wrecks. Sometimes to many Kingfish have made other types of deep reef fish impossible. Sharks are so plentiful everywhere we often wish we could kill a few. There are so many taking our clients fish everyday. We often become frustrated and have to leave spots to fish elsewhere. If you like catching sharks come down and catch some, :All you Want."
Backck Country: Whale Harbor Guides Captain John, and Captain Jeremy have been catching fish on area patch reefs and in Florida Bay. Depending on conditions and the clients they have chose different paths producing outstanding daily catches of Snappers, Snook, Sharks, Redfish, and Tarpon.
Islamorada Fishing Forecast:
Forecast: Winter months will soon be upon us here in Islamorada were we love to fish the edge of the reef for Sailfish, Cobia, Kingfish, Tuna, Wahoo, and Snappers. These fish are common through the winter months and love to eat a variety of live baits. We typically catch bait everyday we go out because catching bait is part of fishing. Bait can be fun to catch when the conditions are right. When the conditions are not easy experience is a wonderful thing to have. Live Ballyhoo, Pilchards, Cigar Minnows, and Sardines are the most common baits to catch in the Islamorada area. Other baits like Thread Fin Herring, and Goggle Eye's can be caught here also with more effort and planning. The more bait the better chances you will have to catch what is migrating through our area.
