The Islamorada fishing report for April 2018 should prove to be interesting. We are going to the Dry Tortugas on April 4th.  The month started out good with some blackfin tuna on the 2nd. We also got some snappers for dinner.

We did manage to fit in a field trip for the 7th graders at Treasure Village.
