Hello again, and back with a new report for this week from the Florida Keys!  Some pretty good fishing all week with some windy conditions, but the Sailfish this week were pretty cooperative as we had another tailing condition develop between Marathon and Islamorada.  A really nice edge out in 200-350 created a great condition and some anglers were able to get their chance at double digit sailfish.  A lot of mahi mixed in and even a few cobia and tunas, especially for the guys fishing the kites.  A few boats in the 20’s with several in the teens, it was a great couple days of fishing.  The  wreck fishing remains in good condition as we enter the weekend.  The front that approached us on Thursday stalled a bit dragging more wind into Friday, but the weekend as of now is looking decent.  The reef top has been marginal with the dirty water, but a few areas have been doable for the yellowtail snappers.  African pompano  have been increasing on the wrecks as well as the permit.  Remember, Permit are in a closed season now as well in Monroe county.  Bait has been decent all week, so that has been good, and here we go into the weekend!  Have a great Easter weekend everyone, and we will see you next week!

Tight Lines,

Capt. James Chappell
