3/14/24 Great fishing in the bay and around Islamorada in march!

Got out today for a full day trip fishing in the florida bay and locally around Islamorada.  March is here and it’s spring break time – so it’s been super busy!  Lots of families down and we’ve been fortunate overall the weather has been pretty nice.  March is typically one of the windiest times of year, but overall it’s been light to moderate wind and mostly nicer east/southeasterly directions which is typical of the warming spring.  We had an awesome day today I just had to post.  We caught our pilchards early and we fished around some islands in the Bay.  We got some juvenile tarpon and nice snook which was very cool!  Then we caught our limit of nice mangrove snappers.  The big mangroves have been pretty steady lately which is cool. If you are looking for something for the dinner table, look no further than that!  Then we caught some good size goliath groupers around the bridges which were great fights.  It’s nice when everything just works out and that was what today was.

As mentioned it’s starting to get super busy.  I’m available for evening tarpon trips starting now though so if you want to get out more short notice, give me a shout or book direct on fishing booker.  The evening 4pm to 8pm trip is a great time to try for tarpon.  They often turn on when the sun gets near set, so your odds are often increasing as time goes on not getting worse.  They also don’t book up as far ahead of time as the day trips do, so you if the weather and conditions look nice and you get the itch, you can often book it with a days notice and sometimes even a few hours.
