Dolphin off Islamorado

Heading to Islamorada in the morning to fish Monday/Tuesday. Planning to troll for Dolphin or BFT. Anyone finding any in the area? Bringing some friends who don't fish a lot and hoping to show them some action. Any ideas?  B)
Instead of giving your children everything you didn't have, teach them everything you didn't know. I promise their future will turn out better! :wink

    If you have a proper vessel, you can head to the humps for BFT, troll small feathers, cedar plugs, etc. with mono of fluoro leaders, daybreak and sunset are best. Dolphin fishing is the standard look for weeds/debris/birds, troll small ballyhoo, lures, etc, have a spinning outfit ready with cut bait if you find a school, leave one in the water in this case. Hope you have a great time and catch lots!

    For the BFT, I would make sure you have about 30ft of flouro leader connected to your mainline with a small spro-swivel then do a direct connect to your lure.
