What anglers said about fishing in Florida Bay

Decide if you want to fish the Atlantic Ocean side but make sure it is a calm day or the Florida Bay/ mangrove side which is quieter with different kinds of fish like snook, mangrove snapper sea trout, redfish etc.

The reef is almost a sure thing. Late afternoon shark fishing works too, winds were lighter.

Be ready to adapt to the weather. Trust the captain's judgement. He fishes every day here.

Expect wind and change of plans but go anyway. A good captain will still put you on fish without beating you up or getting you sick.

I know that there are better times of the year to fish the Florida Keys but the fishing in late January 2022 was great. The advantage of fishing in January/February is the wonderful weather with air temperature in the low 70's and water temperature in the mid 70's.

Weather is excellent. Crowds are low so easy to get around. Food everywhere is excellent. And the fishing is off the charts. One of the best places in the WORLD. Islamorada offers so many places to stay from High End Luxury hotels, to mom and pop motels to camping and RV parks. You cannot go wrong.

If fishing in July like we did, plan a morning half day trip. A full day trip will be extremely hot and fishing becomes more difficult as the day heats up. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

I would recommend to definitely do your research on the type of fish you are planning to catch, bait and most importantly the fishing regulations of that area.
