What anglers said about fishing in Islamorada

For those fishing in Islamorada for the first time, I'd say you’re in for a treat. Known as the fishing capital of the world, the area is teeming with fish. It's a good idea to hire a local expert. I highly recommend Capt Jason Katsikas who can show you the best fishing spots and share some expert tips. Enjoy your fishing adventure!

Definitely worth it, and the water extremely calm for anyone who is not a fan on being on a boat.

Always awesome but weather plays a part. Be ready to change it up and go after different species. Can’t be butthurt if you don’t catch exactly what you’re thinking you want to catch. Just have fun and remember it’s fishing not catching…if these guys jobs were easy we would do it ourselves.

Very hot but enjoyable. Excellent variety of fish to be caught and not too crowded at sea with too many boats.

The weather was the biggest deterrent factor in making this a great fishing trip. We had a great outcome in spite of the inclement weather conditions thanks to the skills and abilities of Captain Tony and his crew. The Singing Reel vessel was ideal to keep us dry and comfortable with its spacious and air conditioning cabin.

My recommendations for someone being a first time fisherman to Islamorada remember, you are in one of the best bodies of water for fishing. Your captain has been on that water way more than most, and he will do his best to put you on Fish the equipment that we used and the knowledge that we had with us in the boat on our captain he did a great job putting us on Fish

Book early because May is a great month to fish in FL. Also, early morning trips are cooler in May. Wear hats, sunscreen, wear long sleeve SPF shirts. And remember, you don’t always catch fish, or as many fish, or as big a fish as you’d like. The ocean is a big place and fishing is unpredictable. Most fishing guides will work very hard to put you on fish - that’s how they make their living.

If you have the chance definitely book with singing reel charters! They were very hospitable and had plenty of water and other hydration options. Tony and Travis blended well with our group and they are the most down to earth guys you can ask for who work hard to make sure everyone has a great experience.

The weather is a little unpredictable in April, but anytime you can go out on the water and fish is great.

Really check out the guides before you commit. We've had some losers. It's kind of hard to do long distance; we are from Montana. On our trip, late April 2024, it was a cooler than normal spring evidently. Luckily, the water temp worked out. April is an awesome month to come out. The weather is great, the water is warm, fishing is like no other.

Find a captain that cares. Be careful of booking thru resorts. We’ve had bad experiences.
