The Islamorada fishing report for March has started with good snapper fishing, good king mackerel fishing and some released groupers. It seems we are catching a little bit of everything along the way. The fishing is good and I expect it to get even better. Come on down and join us. We are planning a Dry Tortugas trip in April
The last couple of days have been great fishing. Snappers have been ok, but not great. When we get cigar minnows the king mackerel are really active. The blackfin tuna are showing up on the humps and there are some dolphin around too. The rest of the week should be good.
The weather has been great but the fishing conditions were tough. We fished hard through the bad conditions and put together some good catches.
We released a few groupers every day and had good catched of mutton snappers. The yellowtails have been tough, but we got a handful every trip
Another tough day of fishing, weather has been tough. Today there was no current and 100′ of visibility. Made fishing tough. We got some yellowtails and mangrove snappers. We them tried deep dropping and got some vermilion snapper and some nice yelloweyes.
Conditions are very tough right now. We are getting fish, but we are working really hard to do it. We have been getting some large yellowtails and a good amount of throwback groupers. We are also getting a lot of small mutton snappers to release.
The last couple of days have still been tough. I can’t wait for conditions to improve. We are still working hard and getting some snappers. We are also releasing a fair amount of grouper. It’s a shame it isn’t after May 1st.
A king mackerel here and there and a few amberjacks. Some barracuda have kept the action going.
Winds are supposed to change. That should help the fishing.
Things are improving. A great assortment of fish today. The winds are picking up tonight and tomorrow. That should pick up the fishing.
Ran into a few sailfish this week and a lot of snappers too. A good blow of East wind would help.
