It was really rainy today in Islamorada (check out the Radar shot)! We went to the Reef which ended up being really short. We were able to catch some dinner with Yellowtail Snapper before the rainstorms moved in on us. It was a wet ride home! The wind was out of the Southeast at around 12 knots, waves were 1-3 feet on the Reef.
We had Mark and Alice from Colorado fishing with us today and we went offshore to the Islamorada Hump! We caught about 8 Blackfin Tunas and 4 Skipjack Tunas on the Hump. On our way back we stopped near Alligator Reef and caught our limit of 20 Yellowtail Snappers! Wind came out of the Southeast at 12-15 knots, waves were 2-4 feet and water temp is still 84 degrees!
It’s Tuna time in Islamorada! We had a half day today and caught 4-5 Blackfin Tuna and about a dozen Skipjack Tunas all on live Pilchards that we caught inside the Reef on the way out to the Islamorada Hump…about 15 miles offshore. Tom and his wife from Fort Lauderdale had a fun and calm day with light and variable wind, calm seas and warm water at 84 degrees!
It’s so good to be back on the water! The morning started off rainy, but the skies cleared and we ended up having a beautiful day. We went to the Islamorada Hump and caught a bunch of Blackfin Tunas and Skipjack Tunas. Then we went to the Reef and caught a few Yellowtail Snapper. Wind was out of the Southeast at 15 knots, waves were 2-4 feet and water temp was 84 degrees!
