Islamorada is the perfect resort combining fantastic salt water fishing in calm water of the backcountry - the Gulf of Mexico. Anglers World have linked with top guides to provide great fishing action in the Sunshine State. Shallow waters teem with an amazing variety of fish. Light lure and bait action for red fish, lady fish, king fish, speckled trout, and bonefish to the big hitters of Tiger shark, Leno shark, bull shark, saw fish, Goliath grouper and huge tarpon.
In addition to the top drawer fishing, Islamorada really is the ideal anglers holiday destination with dozens of superb tackle stores, including the famous "Worldwide Bass Pro Shop" along with numerous superb places to eat out. A week's fishing in Islamorada makes a great add on if making the traditional family pilgrimage to the famous central Florida based theme parks or many other tourist attractions that are found throughout the Sunshine State.
It's hard to dispute Islamorada's self-proclaimed and much quoted title of being the "Sports Fishing Capital of the World". Located in the Florida Keys, approximately half way between Miami and Key West, Islamorada really is something of a haven for visiting anglers, whose biggest challenge is likely to be in deciding which of the countless species of fish to target.
Basically the fishing in The Keys can be split into two main categories. There is the shallow water, flats style fishing in the Gulf of Mexico where giant tarpon, bone fish, permit, red fish, snook and other species are fished, invariably using light tackle amidst the vast turtle grass flats and deeper interconnecting channels and bridges.
There is also a magnificent shark fishery here, where visiting anglers are all but guaranteed of hooking into a hundred pound shark, again on light and sporting tackle. Sharks caught include lemon, nurse, black tip, bull or even a tiger or hammerheads, not to mention enormous, tackle busting stingrays.
Out in the deeper water found off the Atlantic coast, you will have the opportunity, obviously depending on season, of fishing for sailfish, swordfish, blue marlin, tuna, dorado, amberjacks and many other popular species that frequent the reefs, banks and indigo blue water of the Gulf Stream.
