Islamorada in color
 
One thing about Islamorada besides the great Tarpon and Bonefishing is the ridiculous variety of fish you can catch and the panorama of colors they come in! Here is a sampling of some that fell to Sabiki Flys

This is what happens when you hook a Tarpon off the bridge even with heavy duty spinning gear! I warned him!

Some Nice Pics.
I haven't been to Florida yet we have Grunters over here however they are more Silver & Gold they live in The Weed Beds.
We have a Spangled Emperor with Similar markings to what's on your Grunter's Head.
We have many similar Species in our Tropical Waters Parrot Fish are always recognised & are usually The First Fish caught..

Brian it's the opposite in the keys Parrots are the last fish caught and only if you chum and use the tiniest sabiki fly. I like those Bumphead Parrots by you they look like fun!

What is this sabiki fly?

I have sabiki's in the spin box, but could you show a pic of what you were throwing.
