Sailfishing has been pretty good down here in islamorada lately. On monday 1-2-11 we took Joe from chicago out for a 3/4 day and went 4 for 7 on the sails. We raised those fish on live ballyhoo that day in 100 to 150 feet of water just outside the edge of the reef. We've also been catching quite a few sails in the shallow water inside the edge of the reef chasing ballyhoo showers, but caught them all in the deep water on monday. There's been an amazing amount of ballyhoo in Islamorada for the last few weeks. We're also catching alot of cero macks and mutton snapper just inside the edge of the reef. We actually have managed to catch a few muttons while chasing ballyhoo showers, they've been so thick that a few times we've had a mutton come up and eat a ballyhoo on top that we were trying to pitch at a sailfish.
