Offshore:
There were some good catches of Dolphin last week with school size fish and nice size gaffer Mahi too.  With plenty of captains staying close to the reef it is not readily apparent just how the Dolphin migration is progressing.  Captain Don on the Kay K IV racked a bunch of school Dolphin one day last week.  We did have a mild front pass through last week that gave us west and north breezes which kept charters on the reef where it was calmer.  Captain Paul on the Reef Runner has been fishing the Islamorada Hump and getting into the Blackfin Tuna nicely.   The Caribsea had a good catch of Dolphin and Tuna one day last week and also boated three Wahoo.
Reefs:
Captain Ed Yanetti on the Skipper boat released one Sailfish and got into the King Mackerel on a mid week outing.  Attesting to the fact that the Sailfish are still here, Captain Paul Ross on his Early Bird charterboat went 8 for 8 on Sails one day.  On the Relentless out of Bud and Mary’s Marina the mate put the gaff into a huge Cobia at boat side.  Captain Don Reichert on his 27 foot Fishin’ Mission had a threesome on the Yellowtail Snapper and sent them home with bags full of fillets.
Gulf and Bay:
We are not hearing much from the Gulf these days as the Spanish Mackerel have continued their migration.  Along the boundary between Gulf and Bay there is a good bite on the Seatrout with a few Mangrove Snapper in the mix.  Captain Lou Brubaker had a couple out on a half day and they had all the action on Trout and ladyfish needed.  The ticket to success for the Trout is to find the off color water and drift and jig with a Gulp Shrimp threaded onto a 3/8 ounce jig head.
Flats, Backcountry and Flamingo:
Well for those of you that have been living under a rock, I will say it; the Tarpon action is just off the chart.  The Big Tarpon are inhaling Mullet and Crabs under a float and also taking dead bait off of the channel bottom. All of the channels in the Islamorada area are producing Tarpon.  Morning trips often begin just before sunrise and evening trips start late and end up after sunset.  Two things that will prompt a Tarpon bite are a tide change and darkness or at least low light.   Clear ocean water in the island channels dictate that one fishes early and late before the sun is up too high.  In the backcountry around Flamingo or Sandy Key the water is dark enough to fish daytime and the tide is the trigger.  Speaking of Flamingo, there is plenty of room to roam around back there as most guides are fishing Tarpon close to home.  Fishing the drains on the last of the ebb tide should produce Snook and Redfish.  The Trout will become more numerous as the weeks pass.
