Reef fishing report Islamorada Fl

Trip Info


A report from on the reef. On the morning of 10/03/15 I headed out to the reef with 4 of my regular clients in pursuit of any reef species willing to eat our bait. I assumed our day would be challenging because of the the full moon and the wind shifting out of the west. We anchored the boat in 95 feet just outside of the main reef line, deployed the chum bag and anxiously awaited our first dinner guests. Within 10 minutes the yellow tail snapper were thick behind my boat. We caught our limit in 2 hours. In addition to the beautiful yellow tail snapper we were also able to capture 2 Mutton snapper and several Mangrove snapper. The reef bite will remain strong as we transition for our summer (mahi) fishing and into winter fishing for Sail fish, King fish, lunker Wahoo and Cobia.
