Travel Haiku - Sport Fishing Capital of the World, Islamorada


Islamorada fishing
the sea hides
our prizes

islamorada fishing
no not so lucky with marlin he says
as he sorts out his fishes

Islamorada fishing
our excitement louder
than the waves

islamorada fishing
the sea plays out
our excitement

Now that the holidays have passed and spring break's still a month away, spend a lazy day in the Florida Keys' Village of Islamorada, relaxing on a boat under clear, sunny skies with cold drinks in hand—or a rod and reel. Known as the Sport Fishing Capital of the World, Islamorada has countless opportunities to charter boats or arrange for backcountry guides to catch sailfish, tuna, wahoo, bonefish, and marlin.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
