Dolphin Fishing in Islamorada

Let me introduce you to 8 yr old Josh Downtain from Raleigh North Carolina, and his grandfather Doug Davis of Johnson City Tennessee.  Josh has become an avid fisherman with the help of his grandfather. He went offshore twice in the past week on our 47’ Hatteras The Islamorada lady II and caught 10 Mahi Mahi all by himself. He is pictured above with the largest of the catch. That alone would be a great trip for me but that’s not all.On Thursday he went tarpon fishing with Captain Chris King on his 21’ mako. Josh caught nurse sharks, and a tarpon bigger than he is!!!!Josh and his grandfather fish together often and he has caught redfish, brook trout, and red and black drum.  He said the favorite thing about fishing in the Florida Keys is “seeing all the really big fish”. His favorite fishing of the trip was going offshore.
