Upper Keys Sportfishing and Capt. Jorge Piñero Islamorada, FL Fishing Report May 16, 2014

Offshore This past week it has been extremely windy having few boats weathering the seas. On a charter yesterday Upper Keys Sportfishing caught about a dozen tuna into the 10-15 pound size and released many more smaller than 10 lbs. Also in the mix were dolphin in the 10-20 pound range along with multiple schoolies released. A good size wahoo was lost boatside of nearly 30 pounds. Sailfish and billfish in general were not targeted.

 Yellowtail snapper fishing remains excellent if you can withstand the waves. Good numbers of yellowtail mixed with mangrove as well as grouper are regular guests in the ice chests. Sailfish action is slow as many of the sails have migrated out of the area, but some still are being caught while fishing the reef. 

 Back Country and Flats 

 The fish here is tarpon in the bay, bridges and ocean flats. The numbers have been lower this week due to the conditions of weather. Permit are in good numbers around wrecks and some coral patches we fish regularly. Bonefish are found in some numbers along the flats on both ocean and bay. Extreme back country is redfish and snook as well as tarpon but few if any are making the trip with the great tarpon fishing in the immediate area.
