Offshore:
The hot bite the past few weeks has been Blackfin Tuna on the Islamorada Hump.  The single digit fish are hitting trolled feathers or lures.  The double digit Tuna are coming to live Pilchards scattered as chum and then a 20# spinning rod is baited with a live bait and tossed into the mêlée.  The entire scene is great fun to watch as the birds bomb down on the live pilchards as they scatter from the Blackfin Tuna coming up from the depths to feed.  Once hooked on the live bait the fight can take over an hour as many of the Tuna are over twenty pounds.  There is one very big BUT though.  But there are Sharks, many Sharks of every size and species waiting for a Tuna to be hooked and then in one fell swoop taking the fish away from the angler.  Some Captains say they have had good luck gaffing many of the Tuna they hook and others say they can not get a fish to the boat for the Sharks eating them right off of the line.
Reefs:
The reef is still a very popular and productive area to fish.  Most anglers are targeting the Yellowtail Snapper and with good success.  Captain Dave Morris running the Miller Time anchored a little deeper to stay away from the Houndfish, Triggerfish and other reef varmints that make a habit of stealing a Snapper bait.  Dave said they did well with about twenty Yellowtail in the fish box on a half day.  Captain Paul Johnson reported marking some King Mackerel on his sonar unit and deep trolled de-boned Ballyhoo catching a few Kingfish in the 10 to 12 pound size.
Gulf and Bay:
Captain Lou Brubaker fished a Gulf wreck and had good rod bending for the duration of his trip.  There were a few Trout and some Snapper hitting jigs drifting with the tide.  There were a few Permit spotted swimming around so they floated a Crab out behind the boat, but did not get a bite.  Instead a permit inhaled a live Shrimp on a jig head.  The permit weighed about eight pounds and was released.   Otherwise there were a bunch of Lemon Sharks that were caught and some got released by biting through the monofilament line before making it to boat side.
Flats, Backcountry and Flamingo:
There were no reports of any Tarpon action in the Islamorada channels this past week but that fishery should continue through October, it is just many captains are on vacation or in the boat yard this time of year.  Captain Mike Owens ran a private skiff over to Flamingo and reported getting into some good Snook action.  Mike reported his charge catching 12 Snook several of which were keepers.  There were Trout and Snapper in the mix also.
