Off Shore Report: Black Fin Tunas have been the most consistent off shore action lately. We have been catching these great fish for a couple of weeks with great consistency. The Islamorada, and 409 humps have been the two most consistent locations for catching tunas. Along the edge of the reef in 200 feet of water we have caught Tunas that were moving along in big schools. These fish were moving fast eating everything in site.
Also along the edge of the reef YellowTail, and Mangrove Snapper fishing has been very good.
Around the wrecks Mutton Snapper, and Kingfish have been cooperating. Live Cigar Minnows have been the bait of choice down deep to get the most action.
Off Shore Forecast: More tunas, Kingfish, and Sailfish during the transition to winter fishing. There is always great fishing here in Islamorada all year.
Back Country Report: 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.
