Islamorada Sailfish Report

Today’s conditions were 4-6ft seas with 20-25mph wind out of the north. We found a color change, dropped the sea anchor and drifted between 120 ft to 170 ft. The bait used today was goggle eyes. While drifting we fished the bottom rod and hooked up to some mutton snapper and small sharks. We also caught some yellowtail snapper on the patches. The first sailfish came up on one of the baits mid-day and had a successful release. The next sailfish came up on the long bait about 30 minutes later and unfortunately unhooked during the fight. It was a great day on the water; Dena raised her first sailfish flag and at the marina was thrown in water to celebrate!

We will be out there again this weekend with the same clients on the hunt again for sails.

Also, if you’re a billfish angler – consider documenting your releases / tagged fish with the Billfish Foundation.

Have a great weekend,
