25 Feb Spring Break Fishing in Islamorada
Spring break is here and we are all starting to get out a lot more. Today winds were out of the east helping things warm up a little. We had a nice group of gentlemen from different parts of the country that had all connected through a fishing club.
The bite on the first drop was excellent right away with keeper Yellowtails and some jumbo sized Mangrove Snappers. We also found a good number of juvenile Mutton Snappers in the area that were released. A few Cero Mackerel made it into the mix as well as some Porgies. Drop #2 was even better with more Yellowtails that were bigger and some Yellow Jacks. We also picked up some more Cero and released some Muttons. All in all we had nonstop action for the day ending up with our limit of Snapper and a nice catch of various great eating fish. I’m hearing of a good Amberjack bite out deeper but we didn’t venture any further offshore for this trip.
