2005-11-20 - November 21, 2005 - Florida Keys Fishing Report
A pretty nice bite materialized this week off of Islamorada in the Florida Keys, with a mix of snapper, kings, yellowtail, and grouper all coming over the rails on the Pretty Work. Capt. John was out for two half days and a full day this week, fishing twice in front of Alligator Reef, and once \"Behind the Can\". Two of the days were spent on the hook in 35-75\' of water with the chum bag hangin over the side. 35 to 40 nice yellowtail, some going 3-5 pounds were put in the cooler, along with about 20 mangroves to 4 pounds, 4 Mutton Snapper to 8 pounds, and 7 Black Grouper going 8 to 25 pounds. The 3rd day was spent slow trolling live bait off of Aligator in 100-150\' of water and saw a limit of Kings put in the boat, with 4 more released, and a bonus catch of a 30 pound black grouper that came up and ate a rigger bait! The action was all on cigar minnows and light tackle. We also jumped off a couple of sails over the 3 days. We just ran the Over Under Too back from the Bahamas, so Over Under Adventures now has 3 boats available here in Islamorada, including our 29' Mako. Give us a ring, if you'd like to hook up with the Over Under crew here in the Sportfishing Capital of the World!
