Fishing near the edge of the reef has been improving since the passing of a few cold fronts. Not very cool weather wise, however the fishing has been warming up. Plenty of Yellow Tail snapper in 90 feet of water near the Eagle Wreck. Kingfish, Black Fin Tunas, and Sailfish are showing up around other local wrecks too. We have had good catches in these areas using live Ballyhoo, Pilchards, and Cigar Minos. Depending on conditions bump trolling, and kite fishing techniques have worked equally well.
Further offshore we have caught some lost Mahi and larger Black Fin Tunas at the Islamorada and 409 humps. Live bait or trolling has been producing plenty of rod bending action.
