Fished a day here and there. Come on down and fill up the schedule. The Islamorada January fishing report has been good overall. We have had some really great trips.

Lately we have had some sailfish and a lot of king mackerel. The snapper fishing has been tough , but we always manage to get plenty for dinner.

The weather coming up is windy , so we will be off a couple of days.
