12/1/17 December Bonefishing Islamorada

Capt. Richard Stanczyk Sr. got out with friend and fellow Capt. Vic Gaspeny and friend Daryl Pruett for an afternoon bonefish session.  The december bonefish in islamorada can be hit or miss.  But with the very warm weather right now conditions have been ripe.  They fished the afternoon late incoming tide until sunset.  The bonefish flats of islamorada on the alantic ocean side have been looking very good as of late.  The grass is returning to many of them with the better water quality we’ve been experiencing.  Fishing was red hot and they landed 6 bonefish in total.  This was all accomplished by ‘dead boat’ fishing, where they cast shrimp out and let ’em sit.  Bonefish cruise by and smell the shrimp scent, and then soon find the bait and it’s off to the races.  A bonefish can strip off 100 yard of line in a hurry, so they are always a fun battle.  If things stay warm which it looks like they will for a little longer at least, this fishing may continue to stay hot.  Give me a shout and we can get you put on ’em!
