Islamorada Journal 2012...02 JAN

We've been in Islamorada for only 24 hours...following three days of travel interspersed with visits to some of our favorite relatives. It's nice to be here, but it's going to take a while to get our feet on the ground and to realize that we're really in the Keys.

The word is that the fishing's been generally excellent both bayside and oceanside. However, the forecast is for winds to pick up starting Monday evening and for cold to sweep through the Florida Keys...maybe down into the 40s at night.

This, of course, has the potential to wreak havoc with the fish as shallow Bay waters are churned into pistachio milkshake-like consistency and the fish become increasing less likely to eat as water temps drop.

In case this report sounds similar to those you've read from us in previous years, you're right. We can only hope that this cold front dissipates quickly before significant damage is done.

We did get Shoo-Fly from her temporary storage and over to the house; she now rests comfortably in her protected mini-harbor.

This photo was taken in the dark and enhanced to show the weather coming in from the northwest.

Stay with us. There may be a fishing report any day now.
