Islamorada Fishing Reports

On to August

Trip Info

The Catch
Grouper (Goliath)
Shark (Lemon)
Snapper (Mangrove)
Tarpon
Summary

With August right around the corner both the heat and fishing gets hotter. From the Tarpon bite during the early morning to the Mangrove Snapper bite in the evening fishing has been great. Usually I use a Medium-Heavy tackle with Dolphin Bellies or Chunk bait for the Tarpon and Sharks. As I said in my previous report the Mangrove Spawn is on and getting better every night. For the Mangrove Snapper I use Light-Medium tackle with a chunk bait or live Pilchard with a knocker-rig type set up. Book your trip today!

Captain Ron Howell’s Guide Services invites you on a fishing trip around the backcountry waters of Islamorada in search for some fine inshore species. Fishing here is great, Captain Ron’s boat is reliable, and the fish are both tasty and feisty. Captain R
