Islamorada is known as the Sport Fishing Capital of the World. Two of the most famous Islamorada residents and anglers were Zane Grey and Ted Williams. Even though Ernest Hemingway lived in Key West, he would drive his boat Pilar to fish the better waters around Islamorada. Harry Truman also visited and fished often. With close proximity to the back country flats, coral reefs, and Gulf Stream, there is no wonder why this is a favorite fishing destination for many famous fishermen.
