2/15/19 February Fishing trip in Islamorada Florida Keys

Day 2 with Howard and company along with Capt. Bill Bassett. Winds laid down nicely 12 mph out of the north or so and getting very calm by the afternoon. We fished some shorelines and had good action with nice size trout, with a few redfish, a black drum, and a good size snook too! After that we hit the creeks, getting into a mess of smaller redfish. We then ran out and caught some tripletails on the buoys. Saw quite a few but nothing real large. We hit a couple wrecks quickly that held mostly Jacks but Howard did have a big Goliath grouper eat his light rod, but we couldn’t do much with him. He seemed hesistant to eat any larger bait we tried to put down. After that we tried a few spots we had luck at yesterday, not a whole lot there but did get another snook and redfish. Called it a day after that, lots of fun and great action. A couple days off now though should be warming right back up with some calm weather!
