Saturday Post Card Inn Charter Fleet Fishing Report

THIS IS IN RED FOR A REASON----MY LAST REPORT SAID THE SAILFISHING WAS OFF THE HOOK---WELL THIS PAST WEEK SAILFISHING WAS SCORCHING ,MADE MY OTHER POST LOOK LIKE A SLOW DAY!
You want to catch a sail-- NOW IS THE TIME--2-5 sailfish per trip per boat --Halfday, fullday it didn't matter , they were there and chewing! Now I am not going to sugar coat it ,it was quite breezy and bumpy but that is what the sails like , they were up in those waves and looking for food!
Can't forget The reef fishing here in Islamorada after some charters got their sailfishing done the spent some time fishing the reef and the catches there were excellent also---yellowtail snapper, mutton snapper, mangrove snapper, kingfish , a few groupers and bonita thrown in also--- I should mention also that there are still dolphin and blackfin tuna being caught while slow trolling !
Post Card Inn  Charter Captains have been working their butts off putting smiles on their clients faces!
Only have one pic it is from the Gold Reserve


 You can see here Capt. Haden  release a sail ,caught dolphin, bonita and patch fished for the Mangrove snapper-- great job !

Post Card Inn Charter fishing fleet action report

Hello to all the angulars out there! Post Card Inn wants you to be advised that the fishing here in Islamorada, Florida is off the HOOK  Baby!
The Catches this week by our Charter fishing fleet have been excellent! Sailfish have been the main attraction but we can't play down the limit catches of yellowtail snapper and Kingfish .
Kingfish in the 20 pound class have been caught also---still a surprise are the Dolphin , they have been showing up here and there and when things are just right you catch a rack full---I guess no one has clued them in that it is wintertime here and they should be way south --oh well We will take anyway we can ,right?
In the mix also are Blackfin Tuna , Bonita, groupers, Mutton Snappers so a well rounded out catch is being brought in.
I just have a couple of pictures to post----Please remember any sailfish pictures you see where the angler and mate are holding the fish IT IS RELEASED ALIVE to fight another day --our Captains and Mates go to great pains to make sure the sailfish is revived and healthy when released!

New Years Eve at the Post Card Inn

"HAPPY NEW YEAR"  from the Charter Fleet here at the Post Card Inn!
This Week it Has all been about SAILFISH, KINFISH and Yellowtail Snapper but guess what ?
There was also a run of Mahi Mahi  coming through --wrong time of the year I know but there is no accounting of what the fish are thinking.
It has been quite breezy but it has not slowed down the fishing one bit! Sailfish action has increased and with the cooler water the Kingfish have taken hold---limits of yellowtail snapper---Bonita and Blackfin Tuna are being caught , a real variety.
So far today[11 am] one boat has come back and had a rack of kingfish, the anglers were licking their lips at the fillets.
I have a few pictures for you ---Enjoy but it is more fun if you catch them yourself!
another Sailfish Release
I have some pictures for you----Enjoy but is more fun if you catch them yourself!

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday At the Post Card Inn--Islamorada, Florida Keys

Did I mention it is a Sunny Sunday today at PCI ! Florida Keys fishing is very diverse and Islamorada is in the heart of it all---short ride to the reef fishing---closest entrance to the Everglades National Park in the backcountry---The Post Card Inn is right in the middle of it all--best of both fishing worlds!
Largest Offshore Charter /Back Country Fleet in the Florida Keys. We are caught right now in the holiday inbetween time--everyone getting ready for Christmas so it has been slow people wise and just a few boats getting out fishing everyday but the fishing has been great---Offshore those sailfish have been biting their beaks off , lot of days multiple flags flying indicating sailfish releases when the Charter Boats return from fishing--- The Captains are flying their fishing kites and slow trolling deep rods at the same time--- now here's the golden opportunity to catch a bunch of different species of fish---Sailfish Kingfish, Mutton Snapper, Grouper, Tuna ,Bonita and  Jacks of all kinds!
When they anchor they almost do the same method except the Yellow tail Snapper come up behind the boat to the chum and there's more good eating going into the cooler!
Now Backcountry wise the Snook have been making an excellent Showing along with some Spanish mackerel , Sea trout ,redfish and snappers--- 3/4 to a fullday charter is best as the BC Captains have to go a bit further into the Everglades National Park to get to their secret holes--LOL
I have a few pictures today -- they just might get the blood flowing for you to book a trip or two-- speaking to some of the Captains there are still some Choice dates available -Christmas till just after New Years available---in fact make that a New years resolution ---catch a Sailfish, catch a Snook go fishing here in Islamorada!
here's a few pics for you if I don't botch it up --LOL

Now that is a Snook Smile if I ever saw one









Now That is a trophy size Snook





Everglades Park Snook , a real nice one  
you can see these Snook were all caught on different days with different anglers
Pictures were courtesy of Captain Steve Murray over on the Post Card Inn Backcountry Dock















This beautiful 65 pound Sailfish was caught aboard the "First Choice" with Capt. Larry Wren and released to fight another day for some lucky fisherman!


Hope these got the juices Flowing!
