Islamorada Fishing Boat Report about the Captain Michael for August 2015

The summer seas are in full swing, meaning the winds are calmer and the water is clearer. While the summer produces some of the calmest seas, it also makes for some of the hardest fishing. Our reef fish are smarter than they appear. The clarity in the water will sometimes slow the bite down. When this happens proper tackle is key!. The biggest help you can get is by using some fluorocarbon. This is a type of tackle that helps the line disappear in the water. Helping to neutralize the clarity of the water for the angler. Our Pro’s Choice Tackle Shop is a great place to stop and pick up some useful gear and information.

The clarity of the water does allow for some positives. It makes for awesome trips during the day time! We have been seeing a lot of seas life swimming in the water given the clarity. When you come out and visit the Capt. Michael be sure to keep an eye out on the water. You may just spot a sea turtle, shark or everyone’s favorite, some dolphin! Our night trip has been sliding some nice catches given that the mangroves have started to spawn! These tasty fish spend the day spawning and need to refuel at night, making the night bite more active. Right now our night trips come with a complimentary sunset!
