Message from the GM (June 2021)

Dear Members,

Well the summer months are here, and The Tournament season has kicked off, I would like to thank  everyone in advance for your understanding during our club closures for these tournaments.

This is the time of year, when bonefish, tarpon and dolphin fishing are at their best. 

Please Know that although the mask mandate has been lifted, the staff will still be wearing theirs. We come into contact with many more people throughout our day and do not want another closure to happen.

I am expecting to have a unusually busy summer this year {HOPEFULLY} and as always would encourage all members to make your dinner reservations a minimum of 24 to 48 hours in advance. We will do our best to  accept walk-ins and late requests, however this may not always be possible.

Sincerely,

Vinnie Feola
General Manager
Islamorada Fishing Club
