The flats fishing in Islamorada has been really good this month and I think it is going to get better. I am really watching the tides and planning my fishing spots completely around the flood tide as well as low tide to give my customers the best shots at fish. This means I am running from spot to spot to get there at just the right time to find bonefish tailing or permit entering the flats in search of crab and shrimp.
Here is a nice bonefish we got on fly as she had a face in the mud looking for shrimp. With a perfect cast, we got lucky on this beautiful Islamorada bonefish.
The permit have been cooperating and being where they should be in the passes and channels. I always have a pitch rod with a crab on it ready to go as well as a crab pattern fly for those that want to catch one on fly.
Here is a nice one we got:
As for the tarpon, they have been on the bridges pretty good. The mullet run should get going here in September and bring a lot of tarpon to the area. If you want to get on some great tarpon action, give me a call to discuss the best days.
As we make our transition into the fall, we will be switching up things a bit.
That’s it for now.
