Late June Islamorada Fishing Report

Been out on some half days recently and as of late the local Islamorada fishing has been decent.  More bait has shown up including pilchards and mullet which is good to see as we get more into summer time.  Bait is key to productive fishing and I like to catch it fresh when I can!  Shrimp unfortunately haven’t been in stable supply, so having some catchable baitfish nearby helps for sure.  So lately we have found a few small and medium resident tarpon around the bridges and channels.  The other day we also caught this giant snook fishing around the bridge jetties which was pretty cool!  There are a good handful of resident snook spots and if you have live pilchards like we did, you can sometimes catch a few nice ones close to home.  It’s a great way to break things up while you are tarpon fishing.  And you may get some nice mangrove snappers, jacks, and other things while you do it too.  July is right around the corner and I expect we should have some good fishing then.  July is often a great month as the crowds begin to die down and a lot of fish are settled into the hot summer conditions.   Tarpon fishing can be really good and snook fishing is often good too.  With all the bait around and cleaner water in the bay it looks promising for the summer I think.  Give me a shout if you want to get something booked or you can click the link on the website here and book direct on Fishing Booker!
