The Fall is definitely my favorite time of year to swordfish in Islamorada, but it’s a fun time of year on edge of the reef as well. Our swordfish streak has continued. We’ve caught 1 or more fish on 16 consecutive trips, including a couple on each of our last two trips. The Islamorada Offshore fishing charters have mostly been fishing on the edge of reef, wrecks, and shallow patch reefs. Conditions change each day, but lately we’ve had snapper, grouper, mackerel, barracuda, shark, a couple mahi, a couple blackfin tuna, and had a couple sailfish on, but the sails won the battle. As we get more into winter we should have more and more sailfish opportunities, a few wahoo, more cobia, etc. Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to try your luck live baiting, bottom fishing, or deep drop swordfishing!
