The April Islamorada fishing report starts out great.
We were into the flag yellowtails again and did well with them. We are catching some good sized amberjacks.
We still are getting some blackfin tuna this week. The dolphins have showed up which makes for great fishing
The dolphin fishing is picking up. It should get better as April goes on. We are catching a lot of feather tuna. They are small blackfins that are 3 or 4 lbs. We usually troll tuna feather lures for them.
High winds kept us near the edge of the reef today. We did well on big yellowatails.
The last few days have had tough dishing conditions. The currents were running fast and the water was as clear as a gin martini.
We have caught a few sailfish and some blackfin tuna..
On the reefs , we are catching quite a few barracudas and a lot of snappers.
It makes a great fishing day for the kids.
April 19 Islamorada fishing report
Another tough week of fishing. The weather just won’t let up. We have been staying close to the reef edge and working hard.
We did pretty good on flag yellowtail snapper and quite a few mutton snappers.
We are still stuck on the reef. Conditions are very windy. We are catching a lot of snappers. It keeps the fishermen happy.
Finally the wind dropped and we got off the reef. We went offshore and found a lot of grass patches. The dolphin fishing was pretty good. Happy bunch today
