Islamorada memorial day weekend swordfish and slammers!

We had some great fishing down here in Islamorada this weekend. Dolphin fishing has been up and down with some really good days and some slow days as well, but we managed to put together a couple of great trips this weekend with some really nice slammer size fish and plenty of gaffer and schoolie dolphin as well. Today we had a great trip with some really nice fish up to 35# and a bunch of nice gaffers and schoolies all caught between 500 and 900 feet of water. We caught most of the fish on live pilchards. Live bait was very important as the fish are a little shell shocked with all the boats on the water this weekend. On saturday we had a successful trip swordfishing. They seemed to be chewing with 5 bites on 5 drops :fishing including 3 solid hookups and this fish we put in the boat. We also got a special treat seeing the space shuttle being towed past Islamorada friday evening on a barge.:thumbsup
