12/4/2020 Early December Islamorada Fishing Report

Well we finally are getting some cold weather down here in S Florida.  It’s been so warm through November and we even had some late season tropical development, but luckily no major storms to worry about.  But now the temperatures have dropped and it feels like winter.  As of late the water tempartures had dipped down into the low 60s, and warmed back up to near 70.  With that a lot of redfish have shown up with some black drum in the mix.  Snook fishing has stayed good as it has been all year.  But we got into some bigger fish the last few trips which was good to see.  The next few months, these big size fish are possible especially after the water temperatures dip and it gets nice afterwards.  Check out some of the big black drum we found today, as well as some big snook for my dad the past few trips.  Also a ton of good size redfish today too which was cool to see.  Between now and christmas is a good time to come and it’s not too busy.  And of course January is one of my favorite months of the year too with the coldest weather we usually see here.
