Florida Keys Fishing Report Backcountry, 12/31/10 and 1/1/11!
Galen Edie & his family(Galen,Nick, Chris & Sean) Bud & Mary's Florida Keys Fishing regulars for 20 years, rung in the new year fishing with Capt Jim Willcox & Ken Cohan on Dec 31st & Jan 1st. Day one was filled with plenty of trout & a full limit of snappers for all 5 anglers. Day two the boats split up & fished two different areas. Both boats caught double digit redfish,black drum,sheepshead,& large trout. Shrimp was the main bait of choice back here with the water still being somewhat cool! The weather was beautiful & there were no other boats around. Things are slowly getting back to normal in the 'glades and we hope to have a prosperous and fish-filled new year here in Islamorada! The pics are of Sean with a nice black drum, Dad with a big trout, a close encounter with a crocodile, & a sneak preview of a new dam under construction. Great way to spend a day Florida Keys Fishing!
