Offshore Fishing Report World Wide Sportsman, Islamorada, Florida

Hello everyone, and welcome back to this weeks report!  The fishing this week has been an exciting variety, but still very slow on the Sailfishing.  Plenty of Mutton Snappers, Groupers, Kings, Jacks, and a few Wahoo and Blackfin Tunas on the wrecks and live bottom out to 300’, along with some nice Vermillion and Yellow Eye Snappers.  Some really nice Porgies mixed in there as well.  Live Pilchards and Cigar minnows have been the bait of choice, but deboned Ballyhoo have been working as well as Speedos.  The reef bite has been decent as well with the Yellowtails being fired up as the water has warmed up a couple degrees.  The patches remain strong, and should continue with this new front.  Bait has been a little difficult, but as things begin to warm up should get back to normal.  Although, it looks like the wind is going to kick up a bit for Friday and Saturday,so let’s just hope it stays more NE than East as it won’t be as rough.  The current is smoking to the NE, so it has the ability to be a sloppy weekend any way we look at it.  We will just have to wait and see how it all plays out.  The water has cleaned up offshore finally, so I would think that some sails should move in on the reef and local hot spots.  This could be just what we have been waiting for!  I am keeping my fingers crossed!

Well, that is it for this week! Remember, if you need a charter please feel free to stop by World Wide Sportsman’s Bayside Marina and check us out, as I will be glad to help you out with whatever you need. Fishing report provided by Captain James Chappell 305-803-1321 out of World Wide Sportsman Bayside Marina, Islamorada, Florida. I hope everyone has a great weekend, and remember to boat responsibly!
