Islamorada & Morehead City Fishing Report

In Islamorada, we've had unseasonably warm weather and water temperatures.  The sailfish bite has been slow to materialize, although there have been some great days here and there of late.  The bottom fishing in on the patch reefs has been the best bet lately.  Yellowtail Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Mutton Snapper, and Grouper are all being caught in good numbers.  The mackerel bite is still good as well, and for those boats venturing offshore a bit further there can still be some dolphin found along current edges and weed lines.  The approaching cold front should get the sails biting, just in time for the holidays! THATS RIGHT and PRETTYWORK will be fishing in Islamorada, Florida all Winter and Spring. In January we will start running multi-day trips to the Dry Tortugas, Marquesas, and Gulf of Mexico. These trips will offer Offshore action, as well as light tackle inshore fishing and flats fishing for tarpon, permit, bonefish, and snook.

Up in Morehead City, the Giants showed up early and bit real good for a couple days, since then it's been hit or miss. The fish are close to the inlet this year, at all the normal spots. Only 5-10 miles puts you where you need to be. Fishing is all dead bait trolling with horse ballyhoo. Penn 80's and 130's are what we have out and we are usually trolling 5 lines. To date, it's been slow for us, with a couple of swings and misses, and no fish in the boat. We've fished the last 7 days, and unfortunately missed a couple days when the bite was very good. As this cold front rolls through the East coast, we would expect the fishing to turn on, as the holidays approach.
