1-8-2014 Islamorada Fishing Report.
.Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report! Man, I know I am probably the last person that should be saying this, but it got darn right cold down here this week. The wind was blowing 30, and it was in the low 50’s, but you guessed it…..we still went fishing! You can get away with a lot down here in the upper keys with a North wind, as the water has no time to really build before you are off the edge. Really is an advantage in the charter world. Having said that, the fishing has been great this week with plenty of Sailfish around the last few days. There have also been some nice Kings, Blackfin Tunas, Dolphin, and a few Wahoo’s around the wrecks. ..read more on the reports page.
"I have been fishing with Capt. James for the last four years with some friends. I am what you may call a beginner fisherman and capt James has always made the trip fun. He has always lived up to his name and we have caught a lot of fish. He is very knowlegable on the local fishing and knows exactly where to go for the fish. He always plans ahead for other types of fish if conditions are not right. He always puts himself and his customers safety first. I know last year there was some bad weather and he always watch to make sure we were safe and kept us out of harms way. Luckly the weather changed and we ended up having a great day of fishing. He has proven to me for the last four years that he is good at what he does. I hightly recommend anyone to take a day and go fishing with Capt. Jame I know you will walk away happy and a lot of fish to take home. I am going back this year and looking forward to a nice day of sun and catching a lot of fish." -Dennis, CT
