Fishing report Islamorada Florida -  Capt Kevin Brown Aboard the charter boat Gold Reserve

Hello everyone

Weather still calm seas flat. Went out today missed a blue marlin couldn’t get him off my teaser. Then we hooked a sailfish after a little bit we pulled the hooks. Then I found 3 slammers swimming down a weed line. Sean pitched a bait at them but they didn’t look at it. couldn’t turn boat around to get back on them with live bait. customers sleeping. Moral of the story don’t drink the night before a fishing trip and don’t show up half hour late.

Hello everyone, it’s been a while! J

We’ve been busy fishing every day. The weather and the seas have been sunny and calm.

The last week of May heading into June, we had the Baker Family from Tucson, Arizona book us for an entire week. It was a great week for all of us!

The Baker’s included Wes, Christine, and their son’s Sam and Noah. What a nice family! They enjoyed a lot of action pulling in Dolphin, Permit, and Yellowtail Snapper.  At times, it was challenging due to the lack of current that particular week but we were able to make the best of it. We had 2 Blue Marlin up on our baits but couldn’t get them to stick. It provided some great shots for us though.  In the end, all I can say is “thank you!”. It was a pleasure fishing with the Baker Family!

The next week, the current picked back up.  We fished for 2 days but unfortunately, the fish were nowhere to be found. 90% of the boats returned empty handed. By the 3rd day, the current brought in a new batch of fish and the Dolphin were everywhere! Each year in June, we get a run of small Dolphin for 7 to 10 days. We never know what week it will be but this year they showed up about 3 days ago. You have to find 300 to 400,  catch 80 to 100 and then you end up with 30 or so keepers for the freezer. It’s a lot of fun on the 12 lb. jig rods. After having 2 days in a row without fish, it’s definitely a welcomed site!

The following week, the Wanamaker Boys came down and we were in the fish all day. Tim MacAfee and his gang also joined us and yesterday was another busy one.

The “Good Ol’ Boys” from Lake Okeechobee (AKA Cheeseburgers old gang) came down and once again another successful day. A great time was had by all! Sorry you couldn’t make it Dave; it was kind of quiet without you! J

I would like to send out a special thanks to all of my repeat customers that come back and fish with me year after year. I am truly grateful! I see a lot of the boats just sitting at the dock day after day and I am very fortunate to be able to go fishing with great old friends and also have the opportunity to meet new customers.

P.S. Sorry if I left anyone out. The days are starting to blend together and I’m just not as young as I used to be! Ha-ha!

Thank you to everyone,
