Spring Break Snorkeling Report for February 2016

Spring break is coming up and snorkeling will be in full swing. The wind comes down and the water warms up; kids are out of school and we get busy! The beautiful uncrowded reefs of Islamorada are the perfect place to encounter great sea life, such as rays, eels and an abundance of tropical fish…Oh My!

We like to visit spots such as Alligator Reef, Hens & Chickens, Cheeca Rocks, and Caloosa Rocks. Every day is different, so we pick our spots based on where conditions and visibility are best. We do take requests but keep in mind, the crew attempts to the best of their abilities, to honor such requests.

The trips are perfect for first time snorkelers, young children, sullen teens, adults needing quiet time, grandparents and even people that just want to ride along and watch.
Hop on the Happy Cat and see for yourself!

Give us a call at 305-664-8070!

Spring Break Fishing in Islamorada

Spring Break Fishing in IslamoradaSpring break is here and we are all starting to get out a lot more. Today winds were out of the east helping things warm up a little. We had a nice group of gentlemen from different parts of the country that had all connected through a fishing club.

The bite on the first drop was excellent right away with keeper Yellowtails and some jumbo sized Mangrove Snappers. We also found a good number of juvenile Mutton Snappers in the area that were released. A few Cero Mackerel made it into the mix as well as some Porgies. Drop #2 was even better with more Yellowtails that were bigger and some Yellow Jacks. We also picked up some more Cero and released some Muttons. All in all we had nonstop action for the day ending up with our limit of Snapper and a nice catch of various great eating fish. I’m hearing of a good Amberjack bite out deeper but we didn’t venture any further offshore for this trip.

Tight lines,
