Islamorada

Haven’t had any posts in a while, it has been a really busy month for me. I have been doing some fishing but have been failing behind the lens. This past week I was in Islamorada but the weather was very poor, luckily it cleared up on Wednesday for us. My buddy Alex and I started out the morning snorkeling for Lobsters. We scored 6 with in the first couple hours. With this catch we were happy and because the weather was calm we decided to head off shore and try some trolling. While much didn’t happen trolling we did spot a couple of birds diving. As we approached the birds we saw some bait and some bigger fish crashing them. All I had available was a light tackle rod with a 2/0 circle hook on it. I quickly put on a berkley gulp shrimp and tossed it to the fish. I ended up catching a nice mahi. We actually got a double hook up which I understand isn’t uncommon with these fish. This was a first for both of us. I am over excited about it because I am always on the flats here in SW Florida and it’s really cool to tackle something else. I didn’t get any good pictures of the fish as I didn’t want to put down my rod, I was way too pumped. It was also my first try at lobstering. Even with the bad weather it still proved to be a productive trip and one I will never forget.
