Another Sensational Saturday here at the Post Card Inn, Islamorada Florida

Hello all you anglers and ships at sea!  Sensational Saturday is here and it is a beautiful day in Islamorada. The Charter fleet here at the Post Card Inn is out and catching! Yesterday's catch was on the upswing, There was a good showing of Dolphin and the Tuna and Bonita were hot--there was also a wahoo and a few rainbow runners in the mix. This full moon has the reef on fire also, the yellowtail snapper aren't just snappin but gulping the bait and full limits a bound!  Now we didn't have but a few boats out yesterday but all of them had good catches--let's see what today brings with most of the fleet out---they get back around 3 pm or so if anyone wants to come down and keep the "Old Cappy" honest, sip an adult beverage and watch the catch!  Then book your own trip!
Just now sitting here in the booking office I looked out at the Marina and saw 3 Tarpon rolling on the surface reminds  me to also mention the Evening  Tarpon /Shark trips that you can take and they have been quite successful just another way to go here at the Post Card Inn!
Now a couple of pictures for you

Sunday report from the Post Card Inn ,Islamorada, Florida

Well it will be a short one today, mainly the wind was abreezin and some boats came in early----offshore in the deep it was bumpy but that didn't stop the Tuna and Bonita from keeping the lines tight at all! There was also a smattering of Dolphin among most boats that stayed out there--- not the big bite but there were some! On the reef what can I tell you it is Yellowtail Snapper city, lot's of rod benders, lot's of fillets, lots of good eating in the coolers and let's not forget the smiles.  The Charter fleet here at the Post Card Inn work hard for the guests and the customers that's why it is the largest fleet here in the keys so come on and book your trips with us it is easy just call or email us and we can set you up with a trip or if you are looking for a great place to stay check our website out!

Post Card Inn Saturday Report from Islamorada, Florida

Well things were pretty much status quo for the most part on Friday!  The reef Fishing for yellowtail  Snapper and Mangrove Snapper was Excellent---- seemed like limits and near limits were caught aboard our Charter Fleet!
On the Offshore side of things it was good fishing for the Blackfin Tuna, Bonita, Amberjacks but just to show you that the Dolphin are not non existent , take a look at this

That is a double rack of Dolphin, wahoo, rainbow runners, bonita, and tuna caught on the Gold Reserve  with Capt. Hayden
So you see the Dolphin are still around and this just may be the front lines of that next body of fish!

"Cappy" back at the helm here ar the Post Card Inn , Islamorada, Florida

Well there is not much to report on the Dolphin Action at all!  Like I said on Sunday we are waiting for another body of fish to come through---there are till plenty of Tuna, Bonita, and Amber and Almaco Jacks to be caught, lot's of action  while looking for the elusive Mahi Mahi---now on the reef side that action is off the hook most days!  Yellowtail Snapper ,Mangrove Snapper are the main attraction and fine eating also!
Backcountry the Tarpon, Snook, Redfish are  around in the Everglades National Park with some Sea Trout, Ladyfish to fill in the gapes, so that is a good option also!
First day Back  and  no one sent me any pictures so it is a short one today!

To book your own Post Card Inn Charter fishing trip  you can call us or email us

Till Tomorrow the "Old Cappy" is clear!

Sunday, 8/7 ---fishing report from the Post Card Inn

Well two days in a row now the Dolphin have been scarce , just a few brought in ---that doesn't mean they are gone we just have to wait for another body of fish to move in! It should not be a long wait for us at all!  there were still plenty of Tuna and Bonita and Tripletail to pick up the slack! 
Quite a few of the Charter Fleet went to the reef and caught Yellowtail Snapper and Mangroves on half days --looked like goods catches of those!
Special mention should be made of the "Priority"  Capt. AJ Steward now has drilled another Broadbill Swordfish , this one about 80 pounds ---That makes it 3 for 3 on the Broadbills--- three trips , 3 fish plus his other catches of Dolphin, tuna and So forth----NICE GOING "PRIORITY"!
Post Card Inn Charter Fleet works hard to ensure a great trip for their Guests and Customers!
Just a couple of pics today.

Drop Back  Amberjacks, tuna and Almaco Jacks.
