The fishing in August has been fantastic - as usual. A little warm in mid day, so we try to plan the trip early in the day or later in the afternoon/evening. The redfish have been abundant. The spawn must have been very successful this year. We are catching large numbers of small fish along with the larger fish. The snook fishing is good - but can be hit or miss. The snook season will stay closed until September 17th due to the fish kill we had in January/February. We can still catch and release - but the fisheries management are going to reevaluate the fall opening of snook season on September 17th. Personally, I prefer they keep it closed for a few years. We have plenty of great fish we can eat here that are very plentiful. Like the trout and snapper. The trout and snapper fishing is as great as ever. It is not uncommon to catch 100 trout and/or 200 snapper in a days fishing. Some of the best fishing trips involve targeting several different species in a day. We can target the trout, then pursue the snapper, then target snook and reds and/or target a big shark or tarpon and/or bones/permit and many others. This is why Islamorada is considered " The Fishing Capital of the World". There are so many options. I enjoy all types of fishing and can satisfy the expert to the amateur. Kids are welcome and this is the best place to introduce a youngster to fishing - because they are sure to stay busy catching fish and have the opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime.
