7-13-13 Islamorada Fishing Report

It’s been a mixed bag of fish while offshore fishing in islamorada lately. The mahi bite has been hit and miss the last couple of weeks, with some good days and then some slow days. Usually this time of year it’s consistent but it’s been a little on the difficult side as a whole. The hump has been providing action with tunas though, including both blackfins and skipjacks. On the bottom we caught a nice 30 lb amberjack too the other day. The Reef Fishing has definitely been the best actoin lately, with lots of yellowtail snapper, a few mutton and mangrove snapper, and some bull sharks. We’ve been out a handful of days for broadbill swordfish, and our last trip we caught 2 fish. The trips prior we lost a few, so it was good to get back on the board. The swordfishing should only get better and better as we get into the Fall.
