The fishing was fantastic last month. I am anticipating great things in the months to come. Fishing in Bimini has been red hot with plenty of mahi mahi, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, Marlin, mutton snapper and grouper. The yellowtail snapper fishing was legendary in the Gingerbreads this month too. Plenty of 3-5 pound fish were caught on every occasion. We also caught many muttons on the spawn during the full moon.
Fishing in Islamorada consisted mostly of mutton snapper and grouper on the reef edge wrecks and mahi mahi offshore. The numbers of small fish have been incredible with schools of 1-3 pound fish numbering in the thousands. This is really good for the future. It is however; making it tough right now to find legal sized fish to take home.
In Islamorada, it is customary to take your fish to any of our local restaurants to have them cook your catch. We call this a hook and cook. If you did not hook, then you can always go to the Islamorada fish company for a great cook!
Spearfishing will be excellent this month with many spearos finding big red and black groupers and hogfish. The Muttons will still be spawning here in Islamorada so expect plenty of them too!
