Islamorada More deep dropping 1-22-15

The fishing down here in Islamorada has been excellent lately, we're catching a wide variety of stuff, but the deep dropping for various snapper, grouper and tilefish has been exceptionally good. We had another excellent day yesterday. After loading the livewells with cigar minnows and ballyhoo we started the day with a wide open bite of kingfish in the 8 to 15 pound range. The kings made for some fast action and after catching our limit of them on cigar minnows just offshore of the reef we headed offshore and spent the rest of bottom dropping in depths from 400 to 800 feet deep. We wound up with an excellent catch of yellow eye snapper, vermillion snapper, queen snapper, tile fish, and a couple of beautiful yellow edge grouper up to 30#.
