8/15/13 August Fishing Islamorada Report

The august fishing islamorada is still going strong both offshore and backcountry.  We’ve still been getting out almost every day – it is unbelievably busy and the fishing is still top notch!  We landed several big goliath groupers today with some young teenagers, plus they got a big tarpon and plenty of sharks of the blacktip and blacknose variety.  All this was done on fresh live mullet bottom fishing.  We also had good action on the light rods for big trout, mangrove snapper, and ladyfish.  Tarpon fishing can still be very good through September – getting out early to catch the proper live bait is key which I am doing most of the time this time of year!
