11/10/17 November Islamorada Fishing Report Backcountry

Got out with Andy and his stepson Trey for a 3 quarter day today. Haven’t fished the last few days as I’ve been home alone with my son having fun. They wanted to catch some snook so we gave that a try. Looked for pilchards in a few spots heading out but didn’t see much in the bay, though a buddy of mine found some out on the ocean side and gave us a few scoops. We ended up catching everything on shrimp though anyhow! The boys each got several snook including a couple nice ones, Trey getting the largest. Andy got a 20 lb tarpon on light tackle later on too which was awesome, but unfortunately he didn’t cooperate for pictures. Trey got a black drum and a big jack crevelle too. The water was the best looking I’ve seen it around the cape areas where we often fish which is a good thing, hopefully with some more cold weather fish will pile in there! Back at it tomorrow with these guys not sure what we are gonna do, but it is suppose to blow a little bit!
